It's time to join in

I'm still a little bit in denial that I'm here again so soon! But being over 12 weeks along, and feeling like I want to reconnect here, I figured it was time!

I wrote a pretty lengthy into in my August space, if you're interested! I even posted some pics and DS3's birth montage! (for those of you who know me, I'm so bad with pictures! so this is a big deal!)

You don't have to go back too far to find my last lodge! DS3 is 16 months old! This will be my 4th pg.org journey, and while I'm very grateful to be so fertile, I'm a little nervous about how I'm going to handle five kids, with 2 of them under the age of 2! I'm also due around the same time as last baby and that was really rough because it was the middle of the grape harvest, and my husband who works at a local winery was working insane hours and was barely available to help me. I feel as if I never fully recovered physically from that birth because the first weeks were so rough. But the good news is that knowing that, I can start working on putting some serious support systems in place this time.

Another concern that I had last time that is coming up again is care providers. I was so blessed last time to have had a team of two incredible MW's who were amazingly supportive and wonderful. The problem is, neither of them are attending births in my area anymore... (things change very quickly around here!) So I'm back to square one with that...

Anyway, I'm glad to be back here with you ladies, it's fun to see some familiar faces, and I'm looking forward to meeting new people too!

:wavehello: You're also not very good about updating your blog. :bigwink: Glad to see you're doing well, and still getting some, LOL! Even if those women aren't "attending births" any longer, perhaps they might be willing to attend yours. It's always worth an ask. Wishing you a wonderful, peaceful pregnancy and birth!

Congrats and welcome back! I can't say I'm around here (pg.org) much anymore, but, when I am, it's here!

Hi Ayelet!!!!

I hope you find a MW that is able to attend and she's as wonderful as the last birth!

Congrats on your pregnancy!
I'm so sorry that the MW's from your last birth are not attending anymore. Stacey is right though that you should see if they may be willing to attend you again.

Thanks everyone. I'm not going to start asking them until we get closer... I'm in touch with one of them and she knows how much I would love for her to be at my birth. We'll see...
