Hello. ladies!

I posted here a while back about switching from a hospital birth to a home birth. Well I decided to go for it! I've now had two appointments with my midwife and I'm so excited. My midwife actually told me she was excited for my birth at my first appointment! I've also been going to her home birth prenatal classes every month. I couldn't be happier with my decision to switch to home birth!

So, I figured I better introduce myself. Better late than never right!

My name is Melissa. I've been married for almost 8 years (since the ripe old age of 19 ) I have two children: my son, Christopher, who is 4 years old and my daughter, Kaitlin, who is 1 year old. I'm pregnant with baby #3 (a girl ) due July 15th, which is actually my 8 year anniversary!

I almost forgot, here's my most recent belly pictures at 28 weeks, 4 days.

Aww welcome! Our daughter is also due on our anniversary! June 2nd.

I know you're going to love your home birth experience, due to some things I don't think I will be able to go through with my plans for one right now I look forward to hearing about your progress!!

Nature is there for you.
