I know im late to the party but been looking for a bunch of like minded Mamas, Im pregnant and Due Dec 25th ( tho seriously who pays attention to due dates anyway haha)
This will be our second baby, we have a Son who is 17months old, planning our first home birth. (DS1 was a very quick, natural hospital birth ( and a 3 hour car ride in labour, whoops, required hospital birth due to his heart having a murmur, all turned out perfectly fine)
We have decided against most all unnecessary interventions. I am having the usual blood tests ( am rhesus negative), but no scans, or gestational diabetes blood test....So far so good, this baby is WAY more active then its brother was and I think it will be bigger ( DS was 9lb2oz) loving the differences between this pregnancy and the last, I was very unwell with my son, I think it was mainly due to high stress levels and working in a office environment where I seemed to pick up every bug, this pregnancy has been so smooth, a lot worse morning sickness but for a much shorter time....
My partner and I live in the Coromandel region of New Zealand, we have one very old dog, and a cat and of course our lovely little Boy Louie, we live just 10min walk from the beach.
Im a baby wearing, breastfeeding ( soon to be tandem feeding!) cloth diapering, co-sleeping, gentle parenting Mama, and My partner is all of those things too except the breastfeeding.....
Hope to get to know you all
