And I am a little scared about it. I am vbac, not worried about that, well a little I am since my sister had a rupture (but yes I know, due to being induced) Little worried about pain management - my first baby was OP, and stuck facing my leg and it hurt, but then I was stuck on my back in stirrups.
I started at a midwife hospital based practice. And so far I have had MORE interventions and ultrasounds than with my original OB (who told me I would always need a c-section because I can't have babies over 6 pounds) These are all because I am 40 - AMA. I am fine, but they keep asking for more, and now I am refusing and I am getting all the horror stories.
Anyway, I can't tell my family, they would freak. So I have to be sneaky about the whole thing. I belong to ICAN and go to meetings, but I am still worried, this is a new step I never considered before - but after a long night at L&D for something that was so stupid, I can't take sitting in a hospital strapped to wires and not being able to eat just because something *may* happen at some point (I had contractions I couldn't feel - so they felt the need to stop them and got mad when I refused to get more than one of those shots) - is there anyone who had worries and were able to deal with them before the birth? I don't even know where to begin, what to consider. I have a 3 1/2 year old too, so I am not sure what to do with her while it happens.
Any advice would be so helpful.
