Next time... Africa!

Some celebrities have the right idea! I will go to Africa to have my next baby. Aparently my family is pissy about me not answering the phone for 4 days after my due date. It also could contain some anger for the unassisted homebirth.

Honestly, I don't see how it is anyones business. I do not have to explain my self to ANYONE!

I originally made a big post about the national statistics on unassisted homebirth vs. the local hospital's #'s... but once again... it isn't your business! If you can't trust we are doing what is right and best for us and our family... I don't know what to tell you.

Calling on my due date, warning me of all the "risks" and trying to scare me... is just mean. Calling the rest of the family and getting them to call me... is wrong! Calling our work, friends and our friends family (WHO WERE ON VACATION) is TERRIBLE! If you are going to treat me like that, I don't need you. I will not be controlled by you.

I am going to continue to do what is right for me and my family. If you cannot respect that... and NEVER bring it up again. Then I cannot have contact with you. I cannot live, fearing what you will say or how you feel about every decision I make.

Okay, you deserve a medal for pushing out a 9lb 5oz child. I feel so inadequate...mine were
6lb 1oz and 6lb 12oz. Please, Lord, can we keep this one in the 6 lbs. too????

My husband and I have "large" genes... we knew it was coming. We can't avoid having big babies.
