Anyone out there kinda dreading November? Don't get me wrong, I love this LO so much already and am very excited to meet him. But dang, I'm not looking forward to the birthing process.... DS was 16 hours of contractions that were 3 minutes apart from the start and THEN 4 hours of pushing. It was hard. Birth is hard, I get that now. I KNOW I can do it, that I can absolutely get this child out of me one way or another.
But thinking about the birthing day seems to fill me with a sinking feeling. It's hard to look forward to a day that I know will be filled with more pain that I've experienced in 2 years and that I probably won't ever experience again.
I'll get a sweet baby out of it, that'll be awesome. But then I have to balance 2 kids and that scares me too.
Wow, Debbie Downer here. Any words of advice? I'm trying to focus on the joy I'll feel when LO arrives and how wonderful it will be to have him in my arms. But half of the time I think "Ugh, labor. I don't want to! You can't make me!" Sigh.
