I had an amazing homebirth, and completely loved planning it, thinking about it, and couldn't wait for my homebirth! So what's wrong- right?!

I am always so sad, that I'm not about to have another one. Does that make sense? I want another homebirth. Now. I want to be planning one, having one, etc. I don't know if this makes any sense, but I feel sad that my homebirth is over. I mean, I'm SO happy my son is here! He is my LIFE! But I'm sad that I don't have a homebirth to look forward to right now.

I've thought about becoming a midwife's asst, or doula even? I just miss it! :confused:

I understand how you feel (I think)! After I had Kailey I missed everything about pregnancy and the apprehension of birth (I had hospital with her).... I wanted to go through it all again but I knew I didn't want a kid (yet!) LOL!!! This took me almost a year to gradually get used to being ME and not wanting to go through it all again. I started focusing on my spirituality and getting myself back in shape/healthy so I had something to work on.

I know exactly how you feel. It is a normal feeling, the euphoria you experienced at birth is addictive.

I know exactly how you feel. I also have told myself, that the planning will happen again so I'll have that excited anticipation feeling again.
