Bump...and a new fun read. Since we all either have toddlers, or will soon have toddlers, this blog is a must read for comedic relief. I was laughing so hard this morning while reading it that I woke up DD2 from her nap.
I was up late last night reading about ecstatic birth and alternative pain management techniques. Our first two deliveries were med-free, then I caved and took IV medication during my third because the labor was super fast and intense. I regretted it when it was time to push, though.
This time, I'm trying to get myself in the right frame of mind ahead of time so that I don't go in expecting labor to progress a certain way and then freak out because it happens differently. I really need to learn how to purposefully accept whatever happens and trust my body.
