I am happy to announce that I am pregnant again! I am due early January. I am planning on a UC again, so I can't wait to be apart of this group and all the discussions! My last birth was a natural hospital birth. My husband didn't want a UC for that pregnancy. Ironically, the baby came so fast that he was almost born in the car on the way to the hospital! This time, my husband actually said that he wants a UC! I'm glad, because I really don't want to repeat that experience. Our fifth child was born UC and it was beautiful and perfect. Having my husband on the same page is such a relief. :)
Thanks, for the warm welcome. I am kicking myself for my earlier greeting, because now my husband is back peddling. (I love him, but he makes me feel insane at times!) I know he is just doing his best to support me. He knows with his heart that having a baby is simple, divine, and perfect, but he is stuck in the "what-ifs." I've done my best to educate him and help ease his fears, but I can't force him to change his mind. So, we found a compromise. We will be hiring a midwife. I am beyond thrilled!! I will continue to go on and gestate, with love and joy. My husband needs more support, and that is OK. I love him and having a supportive spouse is worth more than gold. Should I stay here, in this community? Probably not, but you can find me over-yonder at the homebirth forum. My love goes to you all!
