We are having a fairly non birthy friend stay with us for 6 weeks at the moment. She is younger (chronologically and emotionally) than me, and I am having a very difficult time with it.
I feel as tho I am in labour emotionally, and that anyone that comes into "my birth space" should only be the people that I want at the birth....
I feel like my need for privacy and labour/birth thoughts and prep is so high that I'm sharing too much of myself with others... So I end up with scared thoughts, rather than the positive ones I was having just a week ago!
I feel as tho I am fighting myself!
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can move forward into being more positive and private, at the same time being a good host??
