    Hello! Okay, so after being on this board for months and months, I'm so excited to have a lodge! I'd like to thank the academy, my parents... JK.

    Introduction--- Name is Amy and I'm expecting my 2nd. Our older child, Avery, was a water birth in a birthing center attached to a hospital. It was an amazing experience! Short birth story (though this might become an extended tale...): Labor started on a Thursday- pretty irregular contractions but the menstrual cramping-like contrax made me breathe through them. Did all the normal methods to deal- took walks, showered, bounced on yoga ball- went into the birthing center Friday morning to get checked. Was 1-2 cm so we were sent home to labor (thank goodness for midwives who don't push labor!). Contrax actually stopped when we got home so we were able to get some sleep. Woke up, cleaned, nested, etc. Contrax picked up around 5 or 6pm and got progressively harder around 8:00pm. Went into birthing center around 10:00pm and found I was 5-6cm. Yeah! Got into birthing tub and ended up pushing by 11:40. Avery was born at 12:05am in the water. It was amazing.

    I thought about the birth for months and months after (I mean, everyday I'd think about it!!!) and told Avery her birth story as we'd nurse. It was such a transforming event.

    So, can't wait to see what happens with this baby. We're planning a homebirth, as we are living in a different state than we lived in with Avery, and didn't have the great options that we did in Vermont.

    Looking forward to sharing this journey with y'all!!

    Great to hear about your journey now. How exciting to have a homebirth planned. Would you mind saying what state you're living in now?
