Ready or Not!

We found out very late in this pregnancy that we were expecting. You'd think that with our fifth we'd know the signs. But no. We finally went in for an ultrasound to find that we were 15 weeks pregnant. Now we are 35 and it feels so sudden. Not ready. But READY OR NOT, there is a baby coming soon. If I werent so sick, I'd be more excited, honest.

This will also be our first home birth. Which we are very excited about. We have had a few snags. no midwife will come to the hospital in our twon (for the same reasons that we don't want to :) So, we are giving birth at a friend's house, which is so much to ask of someone and so much to accept.

A lot has happened this week! We found a midwife to come to assist at our house, rented a birthing tub, and found out the baby is breech! We spent a day doing interesting things including borrowing a car to go to the chiropractor, burning Chinese incense near my toes, taking homeopathic medicine, and standing on my head leaning on an ironing board. Baby is now head down and no longer posterior.
