So we are planning a homebirth this time (DS was born at a birth center) and are really excited about the prospect of a waterbirth. However, we live in an old house, about 100 years old. Its kind of crooked in a lot of places, lots of cracks in the walls...definitely still settling all the time. Ideally, we'd like to use the second bedroom upstairs...but I just have visions of us in a full tub falling through the floor or something! By my math, a full tub has to weigh somewhere around 1500 lbs, right?
Has anyone else worried about this? Any similar fears or has this ever actually happened to anyone?
The backup plan is to do it in the basement, and I am sure we could make a sort of ok space down there with some wall hangings or something, but I really don't particularly want to give birth with all the spiders in the basement if I can help it!
Just looking for some insight if anyone has any to offer :-)
