Baby due in 6 days!

And it will be my first homebirth. I am nervous: not about the homebirtb but about starting labor, lol. I have been do "go with the flow" with this pregnancy (didn't get a 20 week ultrasound, don't know the sex, just this week decided in names, etc) but all of a sudden I'm finding myself constantly preoccupied with his labor will start, where I'll be, if I'll be alone with the boys and my water breaks and contractions are suddenly really bad (both prior labors started with my water breaking). Haha I'm a mess!
But I am excited for a homebirth!! My fingers are crossed that baby turns sooner than later (baby is posterior right now- facing my front) ouch...ive heard that can be painful...
Hopefully I'll be back soon to give everyone a quick birth story!

Being on your hands and knees can help with back labour, no matter if you are at home, in a birthing center or a hospital.
