Hi Ladies! If there's a more appropriate area for me to be introducing myself, I must have missed it, I'm sorry!<br><br>
I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I'm Lydia. I'm a 20 year old mom of a 16 month old boy, Noah and pregnant with number two. I'm married to my husband, Josh for going on two years. We live in central IL.<br><br>
I'm planning a home birth with my fantastic (and illegal =D) midwife. Having an illegal midwife is probably the most "rebellious" thing I've ever done.. my husband gives me a hard time for it.<br><br>
Anyway, just wanted to say hello! I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Sorry, you could only join during open enrollment, and that ended on 12/31.<br><br><br><br><br>
Can you tell I've been sealing with crappy insurance?!?!? Welcome to the August DDC! I hope you have an uneventful pregnancy! Did you have Noah at home as well?

lol, you scared me! I thought you were serious! I'm sorry you've been having insurance battles! =( Yuck!<br><br>
I had Noah in a hospital. Fortunately, there weren't many unnecessary interventions or pain meds really forced on me. I got there late in labor, so that made things go pretty smoothly. I wish I had known how fantastic and safe home birth can be, or I'd have probably tried for it. Can I use the excuse that I was 19 an uneducated? =D

Sure, if I can use the excuse that I was 26 and uneducated when I had Keith in a hospital, AND went in for an induction <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">:

lol, absolutely! That always makes for an interesting conversation, doesn't it? People ask "What made you go for a homebirth this time?" "Well, I got educated and now it's the only logical choice for me." They tend to shut up fairly quickly after that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Welcome!<br><br>
I was induced the first time at 23, and even almost dying in the hospital and almost losing my baby during birth didn't scare me enough. . . . I was induced again at 25. What was I thinking?<br><br>
This time, I'm having a home birth, and I have absolutely no qualms about it. I'm so excited.

Eeek! I'm so glad you two made it out healthy. Is this your first non-induced labor, then? I bet it will be really different experience this time! If you can take an induction, you can take anything!

Welcome Lydia!<br><br>
We were lucky, too, that we arrived at the hospital too late for any real interventions, and this one will be our first HB too.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Welcome! It will be fun to get to know you better these coming months! How are you feeling?</div>

I'm feeling wonderful unless I'm changing a poopy toddler diaper or I have to empty a sippy cup of old milk. Otherwise, I don't even feel pregnant!<br><br>
Last pregnancy, I didn't know I was pregnant until the start of the 2nd trimester, so I have pretty easy pregnancies!
