When we first found out we were pregnant (this is our first) I was very on board with an all natural pregnancy. So husband and I watched documentaries, bought books, etc. now I'm 8.2 and so sick and just struggling in general to not be completely miserable....I told husband that I wasn't quite so on board with 100% natural birth anymore and he is extremely disappointed and said he thinks I'll regret it.
I don't. I honestly feel like I've always been on the fence and I know I can still change my mind (I have plenty of time haha)....but I don't see myself doin that.
My reasoning is that a) I live in Alabama so there is no homebirth allowed and almost NO midwives. B) we will potentially be moving during my 7-8th month and I don't want to have to become familiar with a whole new place and find a midwife, etc.
C) my mother who has had 8 kids never went natural and my mil and sil both said they wouldn't do it natural.
I'm trying not to just be scared and let that take over but I also don't want to disappoint my husband.
We are extremely natural in other ways and so I am concerned about effects of epidural on my health/baby...... I don't know what my true question is maybe just looking for someone who understands.
