Just thought we could share our excitemnet with one another from now till then, I am due last week in may , how about you?

It;s not that i just want to know who is due in May I really wanted to touch base with other women who are having a hombirths and I think that the homebirth forum is the best place for that?
thank you

HiI think I"m due the second to the last week in May. I kind of pushed due date out of my mind. I just know how many weeks I am. I am having a HBAC. I tell my family that I"m due at the end of May beginning of June so that I don't get phone calls about if I had the baby yet.

you might want to put this in the May Due Date club in the "I'm Pregnant" forum. It would be better suited there and quite possibly get more mamas.

i'm due may 22 and expect to go 10 days early cuz i was born ten days early an dd probably would have been too if i hadnt had a cs. i'm hbacing too. i was extremely nervous and scared for about 2 weeks until 4 days ago. then i decided that i'm just going to "dont worry be happy" not worry about labor at all till it happens then be happy it's happening. i'm also going to try to read one positive vbac story a day. are you a memeber i can? theres a hbac group on yahoo and i went to the files and there are tons of stories there

This IS the May forum, isn't it? If not I've been posting in the wrong place all these months!

I'm planning a HB at the end of May but found out at my last m/w appointment that if too many women go into labour at the same time as me I'll be asked to go into the birth centre. My only other option would be a sort of UC (just with no professional midwife - I'll have my doula and two friends there on top of DH so wouldn't technically be anywhere close to alone) but I'm not really comfy with that. I just CAN'T IMAGINE having to get into a car during transition so cross your fingers for me that I'm the only one who gives birth whenever this baby decides to come.

I'm not excited yet because I haven't done any prep work. BUt I'm only 32 weeks so I should have at least 6 weeks to get things ready. I have a submission due on April 19 and after that is my income tax and as soon as that is done all we're doing is concentrating on this birth!

I'm due with my first in mid may. I'm 34 weeks prg.

I've been seeing a nurse midwife group that delivers at a hospital, but now I'm having second thoughts about all the interventions and also I know that hospitals in general make me nervous and anxious - not really conducive to the kind of birth I want to have.

Is it too late for me to switch to a home birth??

It's never too late! As long as you can find a homebirth attendant (or go uc). Even if you're in labor it's never too late. I wish I had the first time and I wouldn't have ended up with a c/s.

I'm planning my HBAC in May! I've got the pool and supplies ready to go.

I'm due with my second May 5th, and just recently decided that I'm almost positive I'm having a homebirth this time. I'm mighty flaky though

3rd baby due around the 23rd. I was late with the other two, so who knows! I am planning a home birth in water with two wonderful midwives, my wonderful husband and beautiful children. (After I give birth I am going to order and ingest a ton of Sushi)
