Intro-been a long time!

Hi ladies,

I bobbled over here after my last birth which did not go the way I planned and now I am pregnant again after 15 months of TTC!

Anyhow, I am planning on a waterbirth VBAC in the birth center with a midwife. I am also interviewing a midwife for a homebirth tomorrow!

I have a viability ultrasound tomorrow afternoon.

I am still nursing my 27 month old as well.

Nice to be back around!

Congratulations!!! I am planning an HBAC very soon!! I would have loved to birth in a center, but there is only one in our state and they would not take me as a VBAC. I can't wait to follow you through your pregnancy!!

Ultrasound went great. HB of 117 and measuring at 6w2d!

We just had a wonderful meeting with the homebirth midwife. DH really liked her and has now totally switched his thinking. We go to the birth center thursday too and he said "unless we really love the place or the midwives or something I see us going with her... homebirth!" Total 180 from before.

She is totally like me. Wants to do things naturally if there is a way but her words exactly " i am not going to give you herbs or waive incense over you to stop a hemmorage, I have meds ready" ... she is just a lot like me. Very down to earth and just wonderful!

Yeah DH said " I was expecting some hippie etc" haha. I think he was not sure of what to expect and she is just a totally normal girl and she actually just ended up with a section 7 weeks ago after her planned homebirth... so she knows when to say when etc. But I think the fact that he knows we are going to get the same experience at the birth center and she is just as prepared etc. The birth center is about 5 minutes closer to the hospital. Its 5 minutes away and our house is 10.... so its still not FAR away etc.

I am going to talk with my OB just so I don't burn that bridge and let her know that while I love her ... its not what I want for my birth as long as it stays low risk. But if it doesn't I want to be able to go back to her because I like her.

I will still have my 12 and 20 week ultrasounds to make sure is all ok.

So.... yay! Happy day!!

Very exciting! It sounds like you're going to have the best possible shot at pushin' out that baby! I'm planning for my second vbac in March, looks like we'll be pretty close in timing. Smile

What a great appointment. LOL my DH has the same thinking about midwives, Birkenstocks and unshaved armpits :rolleyes: I'm so glad you found someone you're comfortable with. Good luck on your home-waterbirth VBAC

Congrats on your pregnancy and a great appt! Smile Your DH sounds very similar to mine, although I don't think I could EVER convince him to go for a hb.
