So, after realizing that, holy crap I could have this baby in ten weeks or less, I started preparing mentally for labor and birth. Up until this point I have not really thought much about how I was going to approach putting my "game face" on for this labor and birth. Last time what really worked well for me was listening to my hypnobabies tracks and reading Ina May. Although it was NOT a pain free birth, it was manageable for the 3.5 hours I was in labor.
This time I am researching the hell out of how not to tear and worsen hemorroids gifted to me from the last birth. I want to be prepared as best as I can be for this not to happen again. So, if you ladies have any tips or BTDT stories I am listening. Also, I am just curious how others are preparing or not for the big day.
