My name is Tracy and I am new to this site. I am due Dec. 17, which likely means baby will make his/her appearance between Christmas and New Years for me as I am most often overdue. I am in the over 40 age group and have previously had 8 beautiful home births. I am interested in getting to know other moms with my due date, age group, or home birthing preference.

Hi, Tracy! I'm Jenny and this is my first pregnancy; I'm 39. You may have already discovered other parts of this website, but there are boards for all of the interests you listed above! I have found that the most active ones are the due date clubs (I'm due in January and ours has tons of new postings every day). Most of the moms on those boards are younger than we are, but I haven't found that this particular board is very busy so I don't visit more than every few days.

Wow, 8 home births is awesome! I was nervous about trying it, not because I think anything will go wrong, but because we live in a condo and I don't know how much noise I'm likely to make, lol! The walls are like paper. My second choice was a birthing center. But it turned out that the only midwifery in my area won't deliver anywhere except the nearby hospital (they used to, so I think it's probably an insurance issue). So now I'm just focused on doing it naturally.

Congratulations on your 9th pregnancy, and welcome to JM! I really hope you find a board where you can feel at home! I hope you stay connected to this board; I check in here a lot and would love to stay connected!

Hi Tracy,

Welcome and congrats!!! That's so awesome that you had homebirths. I almost went for one this last time but didn't. I've had a water birth and it was the single most powerful moment of my life!

Hi and Welcome to JM!! I am 42 and having my 4th earth baby. I had a natural birth in a hospital with my youngest son and just totally on the fence still of what to do with this labor. It has been 16 years since I gave birth and I am not sure if my body will remember what to do!
