    Default Introducing myself

    Hello!

    I've been lurking here some, but haven't made myself known. Due to some peer pressure, I'll go ahead and introduce myself now.

    My name is Anna, I'm 31. I have 1 DD that is 14 months old and DS is due in April. I wanted an unmedicated birth with DD, but got a c/s instead due to breech baby. This time I'm going for unmedicated hospital VBAC. I would have loved to get a MW and use a birthing center, but unfortunately those are not available in my area, so hospital birth it is. Luckily, I have a supportive and wonderful OB. I do need to ask my wonderful and supportive OB about the other OB's who might be on call when I go into labor though. Anyway, I think that covers the basics.

    Oh! And I'm hoping to try hypnobabies too! I've got some friends who are trying to hook me up (I am a SAHM and DH is currently unemployed).

    Yay, I'm glad you came over here! I was thinking about you today and wondering if I should mention to you about joining this group. So glad 'someone else' did the peer pressuring for me!

    Thanks, ladies!! Sure seems like I know a lot of you already!

    I'm excited to try the hypnobabies. It seems like the closer I get to April the more nervous I get. I think about it constantly and have this urge to plan it all out. I'm not sure when I became such a planner. For me, the only appeal to a scheduled c/s would be the knowing exactly what day he would be here, but the recovery time and the idea of being cut open make me sick to my stomach to even think about. I really want my VBAC, and I'm scared it's not going to work out again.

    Be prepared for anything (even a c/s). I kept that in the very back of my head knowing full well that after 2 c/s's that was a possibility but I never let it absorb my thinking. It was only in passing thought that I acknowledged that chance. I planned for a VBA2C and kept my mind on doing it but I was going in to it knowing that I had done everything I could to get a VBA2C and if it didn't work that way, well, that's just the way it was. Now, this is something that worked well for me because of my personality so it most certainly isn't the way every woman should or can deal with it, just something from experience.
