|16-5-2012 - Looking forward to the Pain
||My mood while writing this blog:|
It seems like all of us are jumping from one week to the other to see who has given birth and who is still in this waiting game. The end is so close that it kinda makes me sad to think that we are going to be splitting up shortly and we arent going to be visiting this website as often.
I must say, after reading books, going to my birthing class and now reading about other gals having their little ones, it makes me excited to give birth. I've been mentally preparing for a vaginal delivery and I hope that's what I get. Of course with a csection, the end result is the same, but Id rather not go that route.
Doctor's and nurses have told me not to fantasize about the delivery because anything can happen and you dont want to get your hopes up for something specific. But it's kinda hard to not think about what may happen. Im wondering when those first contractions are going to start and what they're going to fee like. Im wondering how my husband is going to handle the whole event (something very new and different for both of us). Im wondering how well I'll be able to handle the pain without any pain meds. I've been wondering more and more about who my baby girl is going to look like (I hope she gets her daddy's hair and eyes). I've been mentally preparing for a 6-8 hour delivery with lots of discomfort and pain. I know it's not going to be butterflies and rainbows.
It's funny to say, but Im looking forward to the pain. Im looking forward to the most memorable experience of my life.
PS: I really hope you girls continue to reference this website for post delivery conversations. I know I will still need this website as encouragement after my little one arrives. If any of you are on facebook and would like to add a friend, personal message me :-)

- Thursday, 17 May The delivery is very exciting, even if there is pain involved. You know that you're moments away from meeting your little one! And yes, I think you're smart not to have certain expectations about the birth. I have been fortunate enough to have fairly routine deliveries, although I was still TERRIFIED with my first because I didn't know what to expect, lol. It was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. Although I had epidurals both times and in that case, it was just sitting around waiting and no pain involved so that definitely helped! I thought the recovery was worse, but you have your baby then so you really don't have time to focus on that much :) I'm sure most of us will move over to the baby pages and continue to talk after our babies are born.

- Wednesday, 16 May I feel the same way as you, except I'm alittle nervous this time, because he's breech & I hope he flips so I can have a vaginal birth. You can add me as a friend on facebook, my name is Victoria Jones- Hartsgrove :) mangomomma
- Wednesday, 16 May Been through it already 3 times, I am also looking forward to the pain and the joy that comes after it. Of course there may be changes in birth, but going in it with your open mind, I KNOW you'll do wonderfully:) I'll personal message you with my fb name. I also was sad thinking about how we are all going through this amazing journey together, and I don't want this bond to end with the births of our miracles.
