I'm going to hang out here for a little while if you guys don't chase me off. It's not likely I'm going to UC this time, and I suppose it's not likely that there are more children in our future. I'm 40, basically UPing with what I expect is twins, and trying to figure out what comes next for us... how to get these babies onto the earth, into our loving hands safely, without any unnecessary interventions.
Our homebirth turned into a Cesarean 4 years ago, due to alot of known and unknown reasons. Now I'm 12.5 weeks pregnant, and while being completely at peace that my intuition could be wrong, I've felt that there are two babies since conception. I know that alot of people are rolling their eyes at me, but I trust my body... I know they are fraternal boy/girl with two placentas and they are both healthy and strong.
I met with the local birth friendly OB because he's in super high demand- I respect that I and my babies might need him at some point, and I didn't want to walk into his delivery room begging for assistance without an introduction or assurance that he will help us.
Otherwise I'm just hanging around growing babies. In a few weeks I'll be coming up to a point where I should decide whether to schedule a 20 week U/S for medical diagnosis. The closer it comes, the less I want to do it... though I know that at some point before these babies are cooked I should check things out at least briefly.
I'm not here looking for advice, though I appreciate hearing support from likeminded folks. It's tiring to stand alone in a society that can't comprehend a wombon who doesn't pee on sticks, avoids ultrasounds and is averse to doppler. So I guess I what I am looking for is a little positive influence and I hope to find it here. I'm Lisa.
