1st trimester check in!
If you are in your first trimester check in with us here!

How long were you TTC?
Do you have any symptoms yet?
How and why did you decide on a homebirth?

Re: 1st trimester check in!
How long were you TTC? lol, we weren't TTC yet. We were waiting until this summer
Do you have any symptoms yet? Not too many...I had a few days of quesiness, but that is it.
How and why did you decide on a homebirth? We decided on a homebirth before we even decided when we were going to TTC. We decided on it because (1) I didn't want to be pressured into interventions and the hospitals here have high intervention rates, (2) I have 2 children already, on of which is a toddler who hates to be away from me. Neither one of them could handle me being in a hospital for 2 or 3 days. (3) All the statistics that show how much better a home birth is for the bonding of the family.

First Trimester here, going into the second.

How long were you TTC? The question for us would be more of when are you not trying to conceive.

Do you have any symptoms yet? I think this has been the easiest one so far. Did throw up some but nothing to compare with some of my past pregnancies.

How and why did you decide on a homebirth? After not making it to the hospital with two we just decided we better stay home from now on. I also decided after having two unassisted that I liked not being told how I was to birth.

Re: 1st trimester check in!
I'm at the tail end of the 1st trimester, too

How long were you TTC? We weren't :blush:

Do you have any symptoms yet? Most of my 1st tri symptoms have disappeared. My nausea is gone, my boobs are still a bit sore though. I'm starting to see heartburn and some of the other "fun" pregnancy symptoms creep up now.

How and why did you decide on a homebirth? I want a home birth because I like the idea of being able to stay home, in my environment when I labor and give birth. I think I'll be more comfortable and it will be less stressful than getting in the car and going somewhere while I'm in labor. My first 2 labors were not slow (8 and 6 hours) so I assume this one could be shorter and I don't want to take the chance of leaving the house too late.

Re: 1st trimester check in!
I think I've entered into tri 2 now maybe?

1. We were trying to conceive starting in about May. Our plan was that if I still had my period in December, we were going to a doctor.

2. I've been pretty lucky as far as symptoms go(knock on wood). Sore boobs which has gone away and VERY TIRED. Lots of cravings recently, but mostly for candy and junk. :D

3. I saw Business of Being Born about a year ago and was interested in a non-hospital birth. My husband was not on board until we went to visit the hospital and I nearly had a panic attack. I have BIG personal issues with doctors, hospitals, and most modern medicine. Giving birth in a hospital is pretty much my worst nightmare com etrue, so lets hope this pregnancy continues as well as it's begun.
