<p>And I'm not even pregnant!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I never thought I'd want kids.  Honestly, I wouldn't be devastated if we didn't have one, but my husband wants kids, and now I'm almost certain I'm ok with one. :)  Maybe even this year.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My problem is that I'm all over the place as far as pregnancy/childbirth/raising kids. I definitely know I want a fairly hands off pregnancy and homebirth (ok, attempt at one) and I've found a midwife I like and everything.  But of course I'm leery of telling friends and family about this for fear of hearing "but what if something *happens*!!!!!  You and the baby will DIE!!!!!!".  On the other hand, I love having a career and don't plan on quitting my job after we have a baby, so I know that puts me at odds with the "hippie" type moms (no offense intended).</p>

<p>Am I doomed to have everyone hate me for my all over the place ideas?</p>
