Joining the game a little late.

Well Hello ladies Smile I know that it's really late in the game for me to be joining. But I've been a big lurker for a couple weeks now so I figure it's a good a time as any to introduce myself. A couple of my fellow December moms have said great thing about the information and support on this thread. Hope ya'll don't mind me comming out into the open. hehe. Well my names Kendra I'm due with my first (a boy) on December 20th and Im reallly hoping for a natural birth espicially now that I've gotten away from my old scaple happy-OB.:ROFL:

Yay, good to see you over here! I'm so so so happy you found a care provider you're more comfortable with.

Whoo-Hoo.

Not trying to sound like a Debbie downer, but I found that it helps to say I WILL have a natural birth rather than I'm trying for one. That way, you have your mind set on it. I have faith in you and your vagina!!

I have to second that! One reason we went with a home birth with our 1st (and 2nd and 3rd and soon 4th:) ) is because I didn't WANT any options....you DO have to go into it with your mind SET on having a natural birth...I think if you leave any sort of "maybe" or "try" in there....it will leave you more open to intervention....but that is just MHO. I wish you ALL the best and a happy and healthy delivery!! YAY!

Welcome, Kendra! I switched care providers from the Worst OB Ever at about the point in my first pregnancy where you are now. Smile
