Just thought I would introduce myself since i frequent here alot. My name is Erika, I am 22 years old and pregnant with my 4th baby. I have 2 year old twins, Elizabeth and Elijah, and a 16 month old Joshua. I have had 2 csections, and this time planned a homebirth with a midwife. I am due in august, so hopefully all goes well. Even if it doesnt, Ill try again next time .
My reasons for csections were because it was twins (I thought I had too, dumb doctor) and I tried VBAC with Joshua but he stopped moving 2 days from his due date so I went into the ER and he was in stress with a double wrapped umbilical cord and a true knot! True knots are rare and we are so lucky it never pulled. His heart rate was 80 and would not come back up and I wasnt in labor so they said he wouldnt have tolerated labor (would he have? I dont know). So this time, its at home for me
Congrats on your pregnancy!! Welcome welcome! I'm fairly new here, too. I've only had hospital birth experiences (no c) but, understand your desire for a home birth.
Keep us posted on how you're doing,

Welcome, Erika! I'm Kristin, mommy to Rachael (4) and Amelia (2 months). Amelia was my home birth baby after a hospital birth with Rachael...and it was an awesome experience. I hope you get the home birth you want too. There are lots of great - and very knowledgeable - ladies on this board, so feel free to ask questions, share comments, whatever!
