I copied and pasted this from my Intro post, so skip it if you have already read it, but it explains my happy decision to do a home birth this time!
I have been struggling trying to find a Doctor, Stupid Medi-CAL SUCKS! The OB-GYN I had with both kids doesn't take it anymore, so after calling around to about two dozen doctors I finally scheduled an appointment with one I never heard of, and he doesn't allow children in his office. NO EXCEPTIONS! (I am still Breastfeeding!?) So After that I got a very sickening dreaded gut feeling that it just wasn't right, so I called a mid wife!
We meet with her on Monday, and I couldn't be more relieved! After the two unhappy, bad experiences I have had birthing at the Hospital, I am not about to do it again with EVEN CRAPPIER INSURANCE! I AM GETTING A HOMEBIRTH!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! (BOTH Times I gave birth, MY Doctor wasn't there, and neither was ANY Doctor! BOTH Times They HELD MY BABY'S HEAD IN and FORBID ME TO PUSH Until the doctor arrived!!!!!!!! WHAT ARE THE ODDS!?! Both my kids got facial birthmarks, my daughter a Big Red V between her eyes, and my Son a red Hitler stash, but he's grown out of it now thankfully.)
I am so so so Excited about our little surprise. I am SO EXCITED to have a Home Birth, I have ALWAYS wanted one, but we have never felt financially secure enough, and emotionally/medically secure too. I AM SO HAPPY I just wish I could turn back time and 'do it better' with my other two.
We are Not Finding Out the Gender, But are good guessers and Feel it is a little Boy. I can't wait to catch my baby and open my most precious present! I am absolutely confident in my birthing abilities, have a high pain tolerance and am a person very in tune with her body, so this is definitely for me and i cannot wait!!!
