Oooh, my very own lodge!
Here's a quick intro for now. I'll fill in the details later, when I have more time.
My name is Abby and I am 27 years old. This is baby #3 for us, our first natural birth! My other 2 kids were both hospital/epidural/every intervention besides c-section (more about this later). We decided to do things differently this time around. So we will be having a water birth, at home, using hypnobabies -totally different!
Our midwife delivered the pool last week and we are safe to deliver at home, whenever baby decides its time. Baby is really low and I believe (from my own checking) I am about 2cm dilated already. I've had lots of pressure, cervical twinges, and some modest contractions lately. The other day, I had one contraction that really took me by surprise -it was much stronger than any of the others. So we'll see what happens.
Welcome to your lodge! Can't wait to follow your journey!

Dh and I are highschool sweethearts. We were best friends freshman year. Right after we celebrated our 16th birthday together (his Bday is 4 days before mine) we got together. We got married August of 2006, after 7 years of dating!
We had no immediate plans of having children, so we started a business instead -breeding & selling reptiles. Gosh, at one time we had about 100 lizards, 50 snakes, dozens of rats and mice (that we bred), and thousands of bugs (mostly roaches and worms).
Then one day Dh asked me if I was ready for babies. I told him no. I was perfectly happy with the way our life was and didn't want things to change. The following week I got a BFP! LOL I think he knew.
