HI All and Congratulations.
I have a few questions/ concerns . Just found out I am pregnant with #4 yesterday. I am still in shock or disbelief, took 4 tests! My period was not late but I had some brown spotting and thought my period was on the way, but it didn't come so I took the test because I was having other PMS/ pregnancy symptoms. Anyway we have been practicing NFP, and thought we were doing it right with charting etc. I am still nursing my 19 month old, and had a complicated delivery with her. I had a great homebirth, 4 hours but had to be transported for a repair..4th degree laceration! She was shoulder dystocia. (My second child was also a home birth and shoulder dystocia, but needed no repair. )I was hoping to postpone another pregnancy for more healing time. I was adviced by the surgeon who did the repair to consider a c section next time because of the risk of fecal incontinence with a possible other shoulder dystocia. I really do not want a c section , would like to try another natural birth in the hospital this time, so I am there in case I need a repair again..what do you think???
Also, I had a glass or two of wine on New Years Eve, and usually never drink so that bothers me that I didn't know that I had conceived a week or so before. I have also been using Echinacea and other remedies to ward off the flu . Any advice will help me feel more relaxed. I usually plan my pregnancies and take extra precautions for a healthy baby.
