Just going to jump in

Hi ladies!
Ive finally had time to be more active on my birth board and decided I have enough down time lately to join this one, instead of just being a creepy stalker lol

Hoping to get my all natural birth this time around! We're pretty sure this is our last baby so this is my last shot for my "perfect" birth wants to be fulfilled! Ive had 2 inductions. My first for severe pre-e/HELLP at 36wks, she's my miracle baby since we both nearly lost our lives thanks to my uncaring OB. My second was induced as well for severe pre-e, I had/have 4 OBs and the one who delivered was horrible and I loath her. Very pushy, very "your going to die, your baby will die, we're all going to die if you dont listen to ME and follow what I want." LOATHED her, still do.

Im currently on the hunt for a new OB or Midwife which is proving difficult this late in the game! Im also looking for a doula since the one from my last birth lives 2hrs away now ): which is also proving difficult because Im picky being a doula myself and no one compares to her lol

Ok ill stop my rambling and just end with: HI! Im done being a creeper & I hope to get to know you all a bit more in the coming weeks to my delivery! (:

Welcome! Smile

And best of luck finding a care provider that meets your needs. I bet that is frustrating!

Glad you are pre-e free so far!!! That is so exciting! Sorry about all the back and hip pain though. Sad That is awful to deal with as well. Crossings my fingers pre-e stays away this time though! Do I remember right that it started like ridiculously early with your last one?

Krista- Yes it did, I was barely 20weeks when they started restricting me and watching me very closely. So far my BP has been the only issue, I only have BP issues while pregnant but I think we've finally found the right med and dose to keep it under control! (:

Everyone else- Thanks! Hopefully everything will fall into place and quickly before I lose my mind lol

I am so happy for! I will be praying that you find the right fit for your and your baby. It is stressful to do at the beginning of pregnancy I can't imagine how it is towards the end.

I hope you find an OB that you are comfortable with and that you get the birth you want this time!
