Yay!!!!

Guess I have to start from the beginning to keep a full record.

This pregnancy is my own personal miracle that I prayed and prayed for. I feel so blessed to be pregnant. I love being pregnant and giving birth

We are planning our 2nd homebirth and this one is planned to be outdoors pending the weather.

I'm a bit fluffier than my other pregnancies so not showing yet, in fact my stomach is going down.

Aside from the winter storm right now, I've been walking around 2 miles a day and trying my hardest to eat paleo for my health and baby.

I'm so jealous. I have to have c sections thanks to health issues, I give kudos to my doc, she tried so hard with DS to give me a vaginal birth.

Are you doing a water birth outside... or just plain being outside... I'm very curious Live vicariously through you lol

I'll have the option of water, but whether I get in it or not depends on what I'm feeling like during labor. I was in water w/ my other two, so we'll see with this one

I just think it sounds so peaceful and beautiful, at night when it's around 70 degrees at the beginning of July w/ some tiki torches for lighting and an outdoor birthing pool or hammock. I can't wait!

I just want to cry all the time. DH and I keep butting heads because things are just really stressful right now w/ finishing the cabin and the holidays. Living 1/2 in the RV and 1/2 in the cabin, things are spread out all over the place, and it's a mess and hard to clean properly.

I am constantly cold, constantly. I cannot keep warm.

We keep butting heads horribly and it's making me so mad. I just want to cry all the time and sleep until next month! UGH. This is the hardest winter we've endured and it's just sucking right now.

My head/neck is killing me (pregnancy thing) and I want a back and foot massage so bad. I do NOT like massages so DH never gives them to me b/c they just don't feel good but I want one so baaaaaaaaad and I know I won't get one.

Also, cabin fever. Seriously. My kids are driving me &*(%^&%(&* nuts. It's so bad, my 4 year old is going bonkers lately anyway since announcing the pregnancy. Trying to spend more 1 on 1 time w/ her and that is helping, but still... we all just need out of here quick.

/end rant. Hey, it's my journal and I can do what I want too

I am freaking out about m/c right now and not having an appt yet. Everything keeps getting pushed back and DH's hours are being cut b/c his dept. is changing over, which means way less $ for xmas and for me to make an appt since I have to pay OOP for a homebirth.

Doesn't matter. I'm emailing the MW when I get home and setting up an appt.

Hate the medical industry and insurance... oh lets not go down that path.

Alright baby.... lets hear a heart beat today.

I am asking for the placenta to not block the uterus, I'm asking for my tilted uterus to get it's act together and I'm hoping that baby is cooperative. I might freak out if we can't hear the HB because MWs don't have ultrasound machines in their bedroom closet to double check.

Insanely nervous.
