It's a.....

BOY! Oh my gosh, how the heck am I going to feed FOUR TEENAGE BOYS! I'd better start looking for a second job now!

Everyone is so thrilled and this new little boy will fit into our family perfectly. I'm so glad William will have a little brother just 21 months younger than him to play with and he won't feel like a "third wheel" with Owen and Sammy. I am so excited to welcome our newest little man to the fold!

You are rich in sons. That is what my midwife said to me when #3 was born. In some countries you'd be held very, very high! What a fun, fun house you will continue to have! Just imagine them all grown how they'll still love their mom!

Thanks for saying that! I look forward to all the years of being the undisputed QUEEN of the house!

Did you have midwifes with all your kids? I noticed that anti- C section comment you left on another blog and felt the exact same way. Hospitals push c-sections as the more appealing option and act as though there are no risks. I am a BIG believer in the way nature intended. I had a homebirth with my youngest son and thought it was great!

I think I saw you on the same comments and saw that you had a homebirth. It was the best experience of my life. I had it with just my 3rd too. I was anti-that blogger's attitude and the hospitals like that just feeding into it. Babies need labor too as it was intended for them to be born the safest way. Will you have the same midwife with this baby?
Hope you are feeling well!

I was kind of forced into a homebirth with my last baby because I had no insurance and it was the cheapest way to go. My husband was VERY against it - his mom and sister had c-sections, so that's what he knew. Now, the state of WI pays for births in hospitals so I would have to pay out of pocket to have another homebirth, so it's not in the budget. I would LOVE to, though. Thankfully, the hospital near us has a midwife so it's not the same one, but still a little better than a dr. Although now I have to submit to all the stuff I didn't have to with the homebirth - testing and such. I will have to talk to her more about what is mandated for the baby: eye goop, shots, etc. William's birth was soooo peaceful compared to what my other babies went through.
My mom always says "follow the money" and that's why c-sections have become oh-so-popular. Why wouldn't a dr want to do one? More money and less chance of a lawsuit! It makes sense to me but what doesn't make sense is how they have been able to sell MAJOR SURGERY to the general public and paint it as a more appealing option.
