I'm curious about what kind of birth everyone is planning.
I'm hoping for an intervention-free, natural birth. It's funny... With my first, I was planning to go natural. I ended up with pitocen (which was brutal for me) and an epidural. With my second, I was planning on the epidural. Nora had other plans though 'cause by the time we got to the hospital, I was already at 10. The dr. barely made it in time, so there was no time for an epi. Comparing the two births, I would choose the second over the first, hands down. I was miserable the whole time with the first (nauseated, uncontrollable shaking, epi wore off). I didn't have any of that with the second. Don't get me wrong, it hurt, but when it was over I felt great. I'd love to have the same experience with this baby.
