Hey y'all! March was a super hard month for me and I wasn't able to tend to the board very much, many apologies! I attended 5 births just last week, and it just happened to be Holy Week, the most difficult season of the year for a Priest's wife! But I made it. I'm tired, but I made it. I hope you are all doing well! Did I miss any babies?

Check in and let me know how you are!

Well, I don't fit in to either category! I am on CD 3 of our first TTC cycle! Soooo excited to get this journey under way!

DH and I have been married six months and I am absolutely fascinated by natural labor and delivery. I love birth stories and I love information gathering so that's what I'm here for. We are planning a natural birth with a midwife in a hospital because we are waaaaay out in the boonies.

An observation I've made over the course of my life that DH finds interesting as well: they don't need stitches and suction machines in the animal world! I grew up on a dairy farm and now I'm married to a dairy farmer. My DH attends about a hundred births per year (of the bovine variety) and the maternal death rate is about zero. Sometimes he will give a little help to a first timer if her labor is progressing slowly and even then it is slow, even pressure.

That's how I introduced him to the idea of NCB. He already knows that it is generally a bad idea to interfere with a natural process.

Preggers Check in:

EDD: oct 23
Team Blue/Pink/Green:green for now
Baby name if known:
Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center: natural birth in a hospital
How are you feeling? Not so good
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately?I am completely frustrated with trying to find a midwife who delivers at a hospital. I am afraid of the hospital, i don't want to be strapped to monitors or IVs, I don't want them to take my baby away after it is born. DH will not change his mind about a hospital birth because I had such a tramatic transfer from the birth center last time. It seems like the midwives who work out of drs offices and deliver in the hospital have all the same ideas about birth as the drs.
Any belly pics to share?i think I will pop soon
