I am getting nervous/excited i dont know what to expect cause my first 2 labours were farely easy and very quick. So not sure what to expect this time. I personally like the hospital stay...But it doesnt last long. Its nice to get home too.

My induction is scheduled for tomorrow and I am second guessing if I should go through with it! I know I will - we do not have anybody to watch the kids when we go so it will be best that we wont have to drag them to the hospital in the middle of the night. I am kind of nervous for them to be there!



I am going to spend my last day being pregnant relaxing and making sure everything is good to go for tomorrow.

Lauren: Ack yeah, I bled pretty hard for almost 6 weeks... had a week off, then got my damn period. I was breast feeding full time too, bastard body. haha



They forced me to shower afterward. I was SO f**king tired and they just said "go shower, you'll feel better"... really, they just had to clean up all the damn blood haha. I was bloody too (not just from PP bleeding). The shower did feel good though... but I just put my gown back on haha. I probably will get dressed this time. It's not my family visiting this time, it's Hubby's... so I"m not as comfortable being less than dressed around them.



Susan: I don't normally have anxiety issues but I am seriously stressing over the upcoming hospital birth. My last one truly traumatized me emotionally/mentally... I'm so scared. :(

Very shortly after CJ was born, it was time for me to pee since I had in a catheter. I was suppose to shower right afterwards, but I got dizzy on the toilet. The nurses got me dressed back in a hospital and in the special underwear. The nurses thought I was having an epidural headache, so I didn't get to shower until I sometime around breakfast. I so enjoyed my shower when I got it.

I don't know how but I walked to that shower on my own and showered on my own... the hot water made me a bit dizzy though and I was glad for the handicap bars in there to hold on to haha.

I never got dressed either...until i had to go home haha. The gown and housecoat is just so much more comfortable.



I hope your experiance this time is better. Since its at a differant hospital i have high hopes it will be. Ive had 2 great experiances and both were in hospitals. I wouldnt choose to have my baby anywhere else.

Same here. :( I'm hoping and praying this one goes more smoothly, but my brain keeps reminding me of the worst, I guess to kind of prepare myself. I told DH it sucks, because you are supposed to look forward to the day your child is born. I look forward to him being here but I honestly just wish I could skip that part.

Same. I'm not scared of the pain, I'm not scared of the what could happens... I'm scared of being bullied in my most vulnerable time again... to the point where I'm almost willing to risk an unassisted home birth by waiting home as long as i can.



I don't think people are irresponsible if they have an unassisted home birth that they've researched but I don't trust myself to have one so I have to time it just right... which is scary. Oi. I hate this... as much as I hate the birth control decision that follows. >_<
