Ladies I'm reading some of the posts you have on here and it takes me back (not in such a good way) to all the arguments I had with DH about our homebirth. I'm so proud of the strength that you show, taking charge of your births, becoming empowered, and owning what so many women are robbed of. If any of you *ever* need someone to talk to, someone to have your partner talk to, or someone to ask questions and help you prepare, please PM me. We can set up a time to talk via the phone or instant messenger and if I don't have answers for you I will gladly help you find them. I had some fantastic support when I was getting ready for my homebirth and I wish the same to all of you.

I will take you up on that once my DF actually gets into this! He understands it in the abstract ... he can say "Lauren is pregnant", but it's not real for him yet, kwim? He's seen a plastic stick with two lines, but he hasn't seen an ultrasound or heard a heartbeat or anything like that.

Once things get "real" to him, he freaks out and wants a lot more information. With this, I think it's going to be right after I start showing!

And I know the first person he'll go to is his friend, who just had a baby, but it was a "normal" hospital thing and didn't go well. So that will be scary for him. I'm going to have him talk to his cousin, who did have a UP but had to transfer to the hospital during birth, and now I guess you too. Which is a lot better as a reference because you didn't transfer. So thanks for offering.
