I was talking to my friend, him and his wife had an u/s this morning. They were feeling relieved that everything looks good so far. I was congratulating them. I too am pregnant with my 3rd. It's their first. Anyway, my first ended in an emergency c-sec, my second was also a c-sec. While I feel good about my other parenting choice, AP, co-sleeping, EBF, etc..the c-secs still make me feel sad. Anyway, he was telling me that his wife is nervous that she might have to have one (her ideal is natural birth) she's just thinking "what if" so I tried to comfort him/them and tell them that I believed in a woman's body, etc.. He says to me, "Yeah, but you know how it goes, you would have liked to have given birth to your kids." Ouch. Um...they were born. I feel inadequate enough without comments like this. Especially while I have been meditating, reading, you name it about VBAC. My feelings are hurt. I try to support them, yet I feel that a lot of times (this is one instance) they are not required to be as tactful as I am to them, kwim? Thanks for letting me vent. Maybe it's just pregnancy hormones?
