It was our desire when I was pregnant with Benaiah to have a home birth. Due to major compications, that plan did not work, so apparently was not the plan of the Almighty's. This time, however, we are trying again. I've taken all precations to make sure what happened last time doesn't happen again, and so far, with just 3 more days until due date, I am feeling good and everything seems to be going great! We bless the Lord for this daily!
My dream birthing area would be to have this baby outside and try to do a water birth which I've never done before. So, even though we've been busy at the farm remodeling and getting that space ready to move into, we have also been busy getting a birthing area set up for when things start to happen with labor. Thankfully, we had most everything on hand, so the structure and decor in the area didn't cost us much at all and what we did build for the area can be moved over to the farm to be used there as well.
This is just a peak in case I don't actually get to use the area for birth. The evenings are getting so chilly, if everything happens then, we might have to be inside. But we'll see how God orchestrates it all, and we'll be happy with however it turns out.
