Joining in

I know it's still early, but I'd love to join you.

I'm Laura, pregnant with my second. I'm due Feb 5. Smile My DS was born Nov 16, 2007. His birth was perfect. I was 5cm before I even went into labor. 6 hours of hard labor, 2 hours of pushing, and my 7lb 2oz little man arrived. I seriously thought I would have gotten an epi, but the nurses didn't believe I was in true labor and didn't want to slow things down. So, after hanging out in the bath, I got out, they told me I was 7, too late for an epi. I tried some gas, hated it. Had 2 shots of fentnol (sp?). That was it.

I'm hoping for a very similar birth this time. Minus the drugs. I know my body can do it. I chose to go with a MW this time, soooo happy about that. We will be doing a hospital delivery.

I do have one fear about this birth. I have this feeling that my water is going to break and I won't get to the hospital in time. My doc broke my water with DS and I went from 8-10 in 45 mins. Stupid fear maybe, but still a fear.

Anyways, looking forward to getting to know you.
