I am officially confirming the rumors.
I am having another baby. Yeah!!! Now if I could only get myself standing for five minutes of the day I think I could really get into this. I get so very sick when I am pregnant. I have found a great midwife who is doing her best to get me through this without resorting to home health visits and bed rest. So far it is going okay, I am eating enough to keep me going, and am keeping down more than I have at this stage before. Which if you know me it is not much but, at least it is something.
I am going in a new direction this time. Here in Utah you have several options when having a baby Hospital, Home birth, or they have a birthing center. I am so happy to say I am ditching the hospital! I am so not a fan. I don't like the epidural, I hate not being able to eat, And I Abhor having to stay for 24 hour when all I really want is to get my baby home. Now, don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of doctors, They save lives!! But I do not believe that giving birth is a "medical event" that women need to be saved from. I love that my body was made to have babies. (Even if I swear the very selfish side of me is secretly trying to expel it in the first 5 months through my mouth). I also am not a fan of doing it in my house. I have several very sweet friends who love having their babies born into there homes. That route is just not for me. But let me tell you The birth center here in Salt Lake is so great. ( If you feel like seeing it you can see it here) I went and toured yesterday and it was awesome. What a wonderful way to have a baby. The rooms are set up in a way that you feel like you are in your own room. But hidden in the walls are the tools that can save our lives. The Nurse midwife can write prescriptions and resuscitate both mom and baby if necessary. I was so comfortable with her. I can't wait for my first real in depth appointment to get to know her better. Anyway I will finish my rant for now. But a am so excited to be having another little baby.
