I wanted to introduce myself, I just found this site a couple weeks ago, but all the posts I have read in those last two weeks have been so helpful that I thought I should introduce myself! So here goes....
I am pregnant with my second child, due May 5th. We don't know the gender of this little surprise, so I am very excited to meet this baby in a month. I have a 2 year old son who is the joy of my life...temper tantrum time excluded We had a home birth with my son and will be using the same midwife for a second home birth with this baby. It is very relaxing to have the same midwife for the second birth. My son's birth was a long 72 hours of labor (he reused to drop down even though I was 9 cm dilated, until the midwife broke my waters and then things got moving pretty quick), so I (and my poor husband) are really hoping for a shorter labor this time!
We are a baby wearing, co-sleeping, non-vaccinating, non-circumcision type of family, so Mothering is just about the only forum I can feel at home!
