The current plan is to give birth in a hospital with an awesome midwife who is very supportive of hypnobirthing and my doula recommended her. Last time I learned about hypnobirthing after being in labor for weeks (went in to labor at 32 weeks and had contractions every 3 min until DS was born at 39 weeks). I didn't know a thing about transition and ended up having an epidural because I felt like I HAD to push and when they told me no (I was an 8 so NOW I know I probably would have been fine to go with it) I started hyperventilating and felt very weak. This time I feel like I'm going to surround myself with people who have been through natural births (the nurses in L&D had never seen one and had no idea how to help me and I didn't have a doula because I didn't feel comfortable with the idea) and feel like I can really do it. I'm actually very excited to deliver this baby and can't wait to hold it and BF again . DS had a severe tongue tie that they refused to take care of in the hospital so I had to pump the first 3 days and once he got a taste of mama's milk he refused to have anything else but because of nipple confusion couldn't latch on, blah blah. We went to a LC the day after his tongue clip and I had to use a nipple shield until he weaned himself at 14 months. Because of our struggles though I'm determined to eventually become a LLL leader when we can afford the fees and eventually be a LC.
I have a Bachelor's degree that I walked with when DS was a couple weeks old. I love school and education is extremely important to both of us. We decided a year ago that we would homeschool and we started Tot School a couple months later. I can't wait to educate my children. I also love babywearing and making our own baby food. DS has never had that jar garbage . Anyways I think that's about it for me can't wait to get to know you ladies!
