It's crazy, but it's there, and i think this fear is keeping me from going into labor (not that I'm overdue or anything), but it's there.
I'm thinking I need to do some kind of ceremony- cleanse- letting go of fears today and try my best to get past this. It's not fun.

I felt immensely better!
I don't know what I'm gonna have. I do have the 2 boys already.... Maybe I'll have my 3 sons! who knows. I'm just ready and waiting!
I know you've had 2 after birth transports. Roxanne and I were talking about it when I told her you were having another. I think you're due and easier time!!!! So no one from your big family can committ to coming and helping after the baby??? If not, you're a strong woman, and I know you'll figure out a way to cope. Maybe there's a "newer" doula in the area who could come and help with the kids??? YK, the ones who have recently trained and are looking for experience? You could teach one a thing or two about breastfeeding, for sure, lol! Good Luck MAMA!!!
