What were your feelings when you knew you'd be attempting an HBAC? Was it a surreal feeling? That's how I feel!
Can I offer one peice of advice that I learned over the course of my last pregnancy? Don't say try... don't say attempt or plan. You are DOING... Not trying or attempting. You WILL do it. And you aren't planning an HBAC, you're going to have one. It really (IMO) makes a difference in your mental standpoint when you take away the negativity of 'trying' or 'attempting'. You CAN and WILL do this!!
Congrats and good luck!
Mama to C (3-25-06) and A (1-17-09) and Jameson Grant (9-25-10) my HBA2C baby!
Initially I had a bit of the "oh my goodness!" and now I'm just excited to be giving birth this time around.
wife of 8 years to DH , mama to DD (2006) & DS (2011) (Dec. 2012) due Nov. 2013
Momma to DD (12/04) and DS (11/09) .
I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
I am only 5w1d as of today and I'm super excited about GIVING birth at home. I know I can do this and I definitely should change my wording around. I CAN do this.
