Not so good, I had an emergency c-section after making a lot of mistakes - got to the hospital too early, didn't have time to labor before interventions were done, etc. Her heart rate was all over the place so they operated.What kind of birth are you planning this time around?
I am planning a hospital birth again, but plan to labor at home with a doula and get my vbac.Do you have any fears about birth?
yes, being that I barely went through it last time, I am scared about the pain, and that I won't be able to give birth naturally.When do you think you'll go into labor?
probably on my due date!Are you nervous about having a boy?
yes in a way. I am glad I found out what I'm having so I can get used to the idea. I feel like a girl mom!What are your hobbies?
I write to pen pals. I scrapbook and knit. I read the mothering boards!
Also I love reading, traveling, hiking, etc.What are you most passionate about when it comes to parenting?
Trying to be the best mom that I can. Breastfeeding is important to me. Forming a bond with my children.
