|People who say these things are just trying to make themselves feel better about their births by bringing you down.|
Wow I haven't seen this thread in months! I had my all natural water birth with my 10lb 6.5oz beautiful baby boy.
I was 5 cm when I had my water broken (my request) and my baby boy was born into my hands 4 hours later. To be honest, I had an extremely painful labor (words that come to mind are: excruciating, agony, unworldly, mind blowing). It was so bad that I didn't even feel his head come out. When he was born, I didn't care. I was just glad that the pain was over. I didn't bond with him right away.
Despite that, I plan to have my other children the same way.
I do feel like I accomplished something and I know that not all of my labors will be the same. I even look forward to doing it again!
Thanks to everyone for helping me!
that update is cool.
i was thinking about this just yesterday. well, not specifically this post, but the issue in general.
before i gave birth, people were similar about this (birth plans), but also about children in general. a lot of them talked about how hard it is, how it's this or that, how i "you just don't understand!" and so on about many of my parenting choices.
and yet, what i've experienced is that most of the things that i wanted to experience and do--guess what? i experience and do! there were some things i thought i wanted (like a longer time not working or a long babymoon) that i didnt' end up wanting or doing, but otherwise, i pretty much do everything i set out to do.
and i'm happy. so happy! aren't you?
Thank you everyone! I definitely feel back to my normal self and have more confidence. If anyone else has any words of wisdom, please feel free to share!
