I am going to deliver at the same hospital I had my son at. My prenatal appointments are at a clinic about 30 minutes away from my house, and the hospital I will deliver at is about 45 minutes away from my house. I am glad that this clinic transfers to the same hospital I had my son at because I had a really great experience there. The nurses and doctors were all very nice, and they let me have my whole family (mom, dad, sister, and baby's father) in the room with me during labor and delivery, and after my son was cleaned up after I had him, they let him stay in the room with us the entire time until they had to take him for his circumcision, and that was the ONLY time he was away from me. During labor I did get an epidural, and it went well for the most part. The only problem was that they had put a pillow under one side of me at one point and during delivery I tore and I could feel them sowing me up on one side... Other than that It was a very good experience for me.
The only thing about baby number two that scares me is having the epidural again.. it went well the first time but the thought of a needle in my back again is scary to me lol. The only thing that I will change during this labor and delivery is that I will bring things to occupy me during labor. I didn't bring my ipod and other things that I had planned to take, and this time around I will make sure that I remember those things.... Hoping and praying that nothing goes wrong and I dont have to have a c-section at the last minute.. Vaginal birth is the only way I want to do it, but obviously if it means a healthy baby I will do what I have to :)
