did you have a backup plan?how did those of you who UP/UC line up a back up? I will be a VBAC and am a little worried about it. I am coming to the conclusion I do not really want to see anyone when I get pg (except possibly a mw friend out of state) I can keep track of my weight,BP,sugar,protein,etc otherwise. we don't plan to have an u/s or any other kinds of tests unless indicated. what did you mamas do? how do I provide proof of pregnancy also if I never saw a provider? I am kind of really stressing over this so am looking forward to hearing what others have done..
CHANDAR- your birth story is just beautiful and inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing. I thought that was so cute about your daughter waking up because she heard the baby crying.lol. I also adore the name Lilah Ruth!
AmyD- this sort of would worry me if someone wanted me to get into the mind set THEY wanted me to. wtf? especially her telling you to stop *reading*. does she want you to be uninformed? this is not her birth and you are so right this is who you are and you are doing exactly what you should be doing (being yourself). why should you have to conform? especially in labor? your body will be taking over at that point anyway so what is her problem? I would confront her directly on this if I were in your position. I don't really understand why she is worried either. Sounds like you are doing fine and KNOW you're doing fine. If you are getting stressed maybe it's time to find someone else? I am sorry you are going through this (((hugs)))
