Hello! New Mommy-To-Be here :)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, all. I am a new mommy-to-be. Currently 8 weeks pregnant and very interested in natural birth. I am a little nervous about the potential of labor pains, but otherwise very excited for the rest of pregnancy and birth. I am definitely looking for objective advice on vaccines, circumcision and natural remedies as opposed to medical interventions. I am so excited to share this experience with you all. happytears.gif

Congratulations!, its gonna go by so fast trust me. I remember finding out, it seems like it was yesterday... Now i have a 1 wk old baby girl.

If you can have her naturally and handle the pain Go For It. I bet giving birth naturally is the most beautiful thing. I asked for an epidural i wanted to give birth naturally since i realized the epidural was heaven NO PAIN.... After almost 30 hrs of being in labour i was in NO pain. Unfortunately i needed to go to a c-section. My baby is healthy, im doing just fine.... But its still heart breaking that i wasnt able to deliver her. If you can, go for it. Natural birth is better for your baby an for you.

Yes, my goal is definitely natural childbirth, but I am not totally ruling out medicine for pain. I'm glad to hear it goes fast....today was my first appt. and due to due date confusion my midwife ordered an ultrasound. So, apparently I am only 6 weeks! A heartbeat was seen but it was only 70 beats, which they said is small. Yet, they also said the blood just started circulating. Meaning, it may be fine or may not? I am trying to remain positive and not worry, but it is a little scary to hear they have some doubts.... I'm just trying to enjoy the experience and not focus on the what ifs. I am so glad to know it we fast for you:)
