Haha!! This made me smile because I am the same way! Maybe it's because I have had three fairly easy labor and deliveries, although #2 was a long and drawn out process, I learned from that experience and realized what made it more difficult, which gave me the knowledge to NOT do the same thing again. But I am also very impatient for labor day, this being my first home birth and knowing I have had three very successful pain-med free births (and first baby girl!) has made me even more excited. I love giving birth! And can't wait to get the show on the road, lol!
As for tired? Yeah, I'm tired. But for some odd reason this pregnancy is sooo much easier than the boys, I have to admit, I hated being pregnant before. I was very worried that I would have the same kind of pregnancy this time around. Chapsie was talking about being positive mentally (via hypnobabies), and it really made me think. With DS2 and DS3 I was in a horrendous marriage, and very unhappy with my daily life. This time everything is totally different, DP and I have a relationship that you only read about in fairy tails, the whole "happily ever after" thing. I wonder how much that has to do with how this pregnancy is weighing on me, or the lack there of. Although... I could not do this forever! Blah! Give the baby in my arms already!!
I totally understand you (Rachelalle) not wanting to fight for a VBAC, I can see how it would stress you more than you are already. I does make me very sad that our country has such ridiculous rules that women have to fight for a VBAC, when they should be given this right. It's just one of those things that really get my knickers in a bunch! That being said, you need to do what is the best thing for you, and if that means not fighting it, than don't fight it. In the end it is all about you.
