I lurked a bit while DH and I were TTC and even asked a couple questions but I figure I should just come out and introduce myself. I'm Alexandria (Alex for short) and DH is Adam. We have one daughter, Callie, who was born August 2007 in a hospital. I had an induced labor (by choice) and an epi (by choice). After 9 months off BC and 8 months of TTC we're happy to be expecting our second child mid-November. This time around though I'm planning a home water birth and I'll be using HypnoBabies. I just got my home study kit in the mail today so I'm looking forward to getting a head start on it!
So far I've interviewed with two midwives in the area and I have one more this Thursday and my last one a week from Saturday. I will still be going to an OB because that was DH and my compromise to having a HB. I still am unsure if I'm going to try and find a doula since money will be an issue there since I have a feeling DH won't want to help me out during labor, he's actually said he will watch DD instead. :rolleyes:
Anyways I'm excited to be able to follow you all and I'm always a sucker for some awesome birth stories.
