Introducing myself

I am the mother of a rather large brood, though by no means can I compete with the Duggars but currently I am in my 18th or 19th pregnancy and God willing we will give birth to our 13th child in early 2009. This blog, for now, is meant to be a diary of what it is like to be expecting your 13th child, in your later forties and while also waiting on the birth of your first grand daughter who will be five months older than her aunt or uncle.
So this blog will largely be about the joys, miseries and the challenges of being pregnant at this stage of my life, with this large a family around me.

please ignore

YAY!!! A homebirth too? Wow you will have to let me know how it goes :)

I know what you mean about the doctors. We have 5 at my practice. I haven't met 2 of them (they are new) and I dislike 2 more of them. The remaining one is the one who delivered Madeleine and I LOVE her.

in England pregnant women may not see a doctor throughout their entire pregnancy, labour & delivery. Pregnancy is entirely midwife-led care for all low-risk, non-complicated pregnancies/births.
