(Lurking from the July ddc) When I was pregnant last time, the worst comment I got was from this acquaintance (a customer I see a lot at work). He asked me about my birth and when I told him it was going to be a natural homebirth he said "you won't be able to make it, you better make a backup plan now because I know you won't be able to handle the pain. My wife was a marathon runner and she couldn't do it without an epidural." I was so mad! I just told him "women have been doing this for thousands of years at home and my body is built to know exactly what it is doing." He gave me a comment like well we'll see who's right after the fact, I know you'll regret your decision. It felt so good seeing him after my daughter was born and telling him all about my perfect homebirth experience.

I'll be 42 when the newest little one is born! Yowza!
