It may be silly, but I am SO scared of the l&d of this newest LO... I'm only 5 weeks, but thoughts are just popping in my head. I had a completely natural birth with my 2nd son, so I KNOW I can do it, and really DO want a homebirth, but the pain of going all natural again SCARES me.
Has anyone been hesitant about an all natural birth...after already having one? I feel like such a dork, but it really is lingering in the back of my mind.. lol

I think it's a normal feeling. I want a home birth for my next LO and sometimes I feel like I'm a little crazy. Labor and birth is pretty intense (Not to mention after...I had some pretty extensive tearing). However the more birth stories I read the more I feel like unmedicated birth seems so much easier as far as complications go. A bad epidural or a c-section scares me more than the pain of childbirth!
Thanks- we have a consult set up with a different MW next week, fingers crossed! It's a shame, too, because we both loved our MW, but the other gal is her practice partner and I don't want to risk being in her care again. Nor do I wish to pay for her services...
