    Hi everyone

    I've been lurking around here for a couple of weeks, so i might as well introduce myself

    We're expecting our 6th baby in early February, and we'll be having her at home with Wendy Thornton (yep, i'm in Adelaide too). She also supported us for DS4's birth...the first 4 babies were all hospital births

    I've actually been quite lucky so far that no one seems to have had a negative reaction to my homebirthing. DH's side of the family are all Scottish, so more than used to homebirths....and i think most people kind of assume i know what i'm doing by now LOL.

    Hi all, couldn't resist joining in.

    Our first belly babe is due in March. We haven't spoken to any midwives yet, or done anything really for that matter since my very first pee on a stick came up positive. Everything seems to be coming along rosy, so we'll just keep rolling with it, belly babe seems to be growing just fine - I have a yuuuge stomach at present.

    I honestly haven't decided yet whether to get any scans, I don't really feel the need to - maybe later on.

    We may even go with just a doula depending on circumstances. We will be based in Tas so depends who we can find. I'm really looking forward to the birth. But at the same time just loving being preggers.

    Well enough of my rambling, hope all is well with you peeps!

    Hello girls, have read a few of the last pages and you seem like a lovely bunch! I look forward to getting to know you all.
    I am not a hundred percent sure if i am having a home birth or not but i am definitely open to the idea and will talk to the midwife and see what she suggests etc, but it would be just wonderful to have a homebirth! It would be a HBAC for me which is a little nerve racking, but if it is going to give that birth i have always wanted then i am really excited about it, the whole being able to be in water is exciting enough, crazy i know. I find all of your courage and power inspirational, i would have no idea what to have a homebirth so i will have to google it etc, but i thought i would join in as i may indeed have a homebirth considering some of the hospital policies, so i will join in and get to know some of you, i hope you don't mind me joining in

    uptheduff, BornToBe, and kathbubz - hi and welcome

    uptheduff, can definitely tell you guys are Scottish, I love your childrens' names! How do you pronounce the name 'Eire'? \

    kathbubz - I hope everything works out for you and you get the homebirth you want, there's plenty of great information out there, I'm sure as soon as you start researching you'll be addicted to the idea just as I was

    youngmum - ohhh gosh I don't envy you. MS is the worst. Hopefully it doesn't stick around very long. Did you have it with your first pregnancy?

    AFM, we went and bought a double pram today, the Phil and Teds Dash...it was on special and to be honest I haven't researched double prams very much, but I just googled it quickly and apparantly it's hopeless and has heaps of problems! Oops! Ah well, not too worried cause I'm hoping I will hardly need to use it because we will both love using the Hug-a-Bub instead... I'm more excited about trying that out than the pram

    Apart from that, am 30 weeks today and starting to feel well and truly over being so big and uncomfortable... only 10 weeks (hopefully a bit less) to go!

    Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Welcome to those who have just joined the thread

    Youngmum- I have m/s too hope it clears up soon for both of us!

    Chloeandme - I'm interested in trying out the hugabub...except I think I should sell one of my other carriers first (I don't think I
    need five carriers ). I hope the pram isn't too crappy for you after all.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes girls! I actually love the look of hug-a-bub it looks so cool, and i really think i will get one. As for prams i am thinking of getting the strider plus as its on special and i have heard some good things about it. Hope you are doing ok chloeandme, i am only 15weeks so i am over the ms, but my headaches are the worst=( Not long now for you though!

    hey everyone

    youngmum - i was lucky enough to escape morning sickness this time around (with DS i projectile vomited for 4 and a half months!)

    chloeandme- i was thinking about getting the hug-a-bub, it looked really good and comfy for bub. i was also looking at the ergo...but wasn't sure about it for a newborn. We have a cheapie ring sling that we tried DS in at 9weeks...he hated it! (although he also hated being wrapped from day one! so i think that might just be him).

    AFM - im 30 weeks also (ticker is a few days off...im actually due date buddies with chloeandme )
    i had a midwife appoinment today and i just have to say...I LOVE MY MIDWIFE!! she is just wonderful. she went through all my hospital notes from DS's birth and was like "oh no thats not right...they shouldn't have done that" and "thats like reading a horror story!" She was highly unimpressed. Im glad she thought that because thats exactly what i think! Then she said "well none of that is happening this time!"
    Bubs is apparently head down and engaged already! and apparently the pain i had last night was braxton hicks! ( i didnt get them last time!!) im also having pelvis issues and she said its lots of 'relaxin' (sp?) hormone and i just have to be careful how i sit and get out of bed etc. Lots of fun new things this pregnancy!

    hope everyone else is well
