sorry but just wondering mw didnt come cuz she was sick? no back-up mw?
yeah there are only two in the practice.. I knew it could end up like that.. I guess usually only one is on call b/c they are on call so much. Actually my old mw is usually on call for them but she was on vacation. ( i loved my old mw only left the practice b/c I wanted a hb)

I do think that if we would've been at home I prob would've ended up at the hosp anyway b/c he just wasn't coming out.. of course I may have been more relaxed and able to get him out at home?? Guess I'll never know

Thanks so much for the encouaragment. I agree it is really hard when what you wanted didn't happen. I am still morning and I hope you are able to do the same. My one friend told me it's okay to be happy and sad and I'm so glad she said that.

I agree it's so hard not to say "what if".. During the birth I was crying/upset about so much.. maybe that's why i'm doing better now With all 4 I said "the baby's not going to come out" which was funny three times.. this time it wasn't b/c it felt like he wasn't! However everyone did laugh when I kept saying "I'm too old to do this"

Re: Zephaniah's unexpected hospital birth..

Congrats on your new little man. I'm sorry you didn't get the birth you had planned but glad everyone is healthy. Please don't put yourself through the "what-ifs" as you'll never know what would have happened. Enjoy your babymoon!

We had an unexpected hospital birth too. It was hard to come to terms with, but 6 months later I am just grateful for my healthy daughter! CONGRATS to you!
