It is with great surprise that I announce the impending arrival of a new family member! Yes, we are expecting a baby some time in Autumn. Which means we have a birth to plan! I'm told that another baby was born in this house so it's tried and tested.
I imagine we'll set up a birth pool near the fire. That sounds terribly clichéd doesn't it, but sometimes it's nice to live in a cliché. I'm hoping for a daytime birth with the curtains open wide and the sun streaming in, looking out at the rolling green hill.
I always said I'd go back for one more if I could guarantee either a girl or twins so I've put my order in and now I just have to wait and see what eventuates!
