Baby #3 due 6/21/13
Hi I am a 29 yr old single mom. My DD Alexis is 8 and my DS Riley is 5 1/2. My lil surprise is due on the 19th of May. His name will be Tyler James. Umm...lets see I have gone natural and I have tried an epi but it didnt work. I am going to try to go natural again but I am worried I will freak out again towards the end of the birth. So I am trying to read as much as I can on relaxtion and breathing. Well, thats about it for now.
Very nice to "meet" you Sounds like your experienced with the process, that's a great place to start. Feel free to ask any questions you have, there are so many mamas here with great advice. The end is very intense, I don't really know that there is any way around that? I know I had to keep reminding my self that I was just getting closer to seeing the baby, and that if I didn't work hard I was going to stay prego longer! Do you have pics of your kids or any belly pics you'd like to share? My hat is off to anyone who can handle being a single mom, I can't imagaine how hard that must be.
I hope you have an enjoyable birth experience this time. Who are you going to have with you during the birth? I think the presence of a person with a calming influence can help with those freak out moments.
Where to start. Well, it just finally dawned on m me I am totally alone. I always thought this BD would leave. I was sure it would been in the early stage. I never imaged it would be this far into it. I guess it took awhile to hit me. Im really scared too! I have my best friend Chris to be with me in the labor room. He is probably the only thing keeping me sane at the moment. He says I should go after child support even though I told BD I wouldnt. I want too, but I am afraid he wont be able to pay (he has other kids he is paying for and work is really slow here) and they will lock him up. Then I'm the bad guy!!! Well life does go on. I dont know why but this pg I have felt soooo werid like I am waiting for the second shoe to fall or something bad is on the horizon. I think thats why I need the birth to go as smoothly as possible. Sorry OT. Thanks for the vent time.
