Kirstie wow sometimes things are just meant to be!! It's amazing how things pan out! 😁
Names are impossible! We found it so easy with our last 2 but I have a feeling this one will be nameless too!! Lol we have a list of potential girls names which we like but not love and as for boys names we just can't agree on anything! This poor kid will be known as baby when it's born haha! Still got 9 weeks to decide so Hopfully we can get some names picked. It's much harder being team yellow though what do you think? Also feel like I haven't connected to this baby like I have the other 2 and I think it's because I don't know the gender. Don't get me wrong I love it and feeling it move is wonderful and I'm sure it's already got a little character but I just can't relate to it as my baby boy or girl. I'm sure it will be worth it when hubby tells me the gender when it's born though! That's what I'm looking forward to the most!

It’s definitely harder being team yellow and figuring out a name I think because you go back and forth through boy and girl names I find that my then girls names or boys name I like I don’t anymore and we just go around in circles lol.
That is exactly how I am feeling about baby and is what is kind of pushing me to want to find out. That and my eldest does not want another he says if it comes out a boy it can go back lol he is dying for a baby sister after 2 brothers the poor thing and I kind of feel like we need to prepare him if it is a boy.
But in saying that it was so special with our first not knowing and then at the end of all that hard work getting such a surprise so both ways for me have been great. I am so torn it really is a hard decision hey!!
I am kind of getting a bit frustrated with people though because we already have the three boys they are obsessing over me having a girl and to be honest I think it’s another boy I know people are only being hopefully and trying to be kind for me as it would be nice to have a girl but at the same time it is frustrating. Like a friend of mine bless her heart gave me some clothes yesterday that she had bought bubs and 2 our of the 3 are girls clothes I just don’t want all this girl stuff put in my face when there is a 50% chance it’s a boy.

Not yet I've been looking online at a few and can't decide whether to hire one or just buy one in case we have another baby in the future. Also want to speak to midwife before ordering one in case she has any recommendations. She's not discussed our home birth much but said she will at our next appointment in a few weeks. Where did you get your pool from?

Last time I bought a second hand pool and got a new liner for it, but sold it on as we were struggling for space to store it at the time. I'm now thinking I may not bother this time. It will cost around 100 to hire one or I think I can borrow one from my midwife but will have to buy a liner and pumps ect for it. My last labour was so quick so am still undecided!! I will have to make my mind up soon! Am thinking about hiring a tens machine instead but have not tried one before so need to do some research! 😁 xx

Well I've decided to go with a homebirth 😊. Actually the midwife just suggested we plan for one and if at any stage I decide to go to the hospital it's only 15 mins away but I'm really looking forward to not having to get in a car while in labour like last time.

I don't think I'm going to get a pool, I'm going to look into a tens machine and if I need water then I guess I can try the bath for a while?

My only concern now is my 2 year old, it would be ideal if baby was born in the night while he is sleeping but if labour starts during the day I don't really have anyone to watch him except my DH who will be looking after me!

Hi sunnydee. How exciting! It's hard thinking about childcare. I'm planning on having mine at home. They are 3 and 5 but my Mil will be on standby. She only lives 30 mins away. Hopfully I labour at night like previously. Do you gave any friends or family bear you that can be on standby to take him in an emergency? I've got my homebirth midwife appointment tomorrow so am going to go over the details then. I'm still very undecided on whether to get a pool or not. I'm going round in circles! 😁 xx

I don't really have anyone living close enough to take him. My mother is possibly coming to visit before baby arrives so that would be ideal but if not then I guess he will be there for it. It's just that he's quite sensitive and I would be worrying about him which might affect how labour progresses.
It's hard to decide about the pool isn't it! I figured it might be too quick for me to get it set up in time that's why i decided against it.

Hi ladies! Chiming in! I know of 3 mama's who didn't get to use their pool because of quick progression! I like the idea of using the tub if you need some water to cope!

We are doing our first home birth, I have preciptious labours, first was 4 hours in the hospital, second was 90 mins and ended up having the baby in the parking lot of the hospital. So this time we're staying at home. I expect to be fast again so no pool... I actually will probably lay on my back to slow things down until the mw arrives lol. What kind of supplies do you need for a hb? The mw are recommending it for me but we haven't talked specifics yet.
