    My birth pool got here today. Midwife is coming tomorrow to leave homebrth kit. Mostly i am really excited, as i don't know what i'm having.. Then i think of the afterpains with baby 4 and get really nervous......I'm hoping the six year age gap will have allowed my womb to be normal about having another baby...Its like i go into labour again afterwards for about 6 hours...(it was so bad last time the mw let me still use the g&a) :shock:

    I also hope i get the birth pool up and running. I've never had a water birth. I live in old cottage with a dodgey ancient hot water system. But thankfully i do have an Aga i intend using for heating up big pans of water. Fingers crossed :cheer:

    I also had bad after pains with my second, to be honest they hurt more than the labour :shock:

    Good luck with your homebirth,im also planning one but i prefer to be dry. Have you had one before?
