Looks like I'm not the only one with a folded up baby. I keep telling nugget to move her legs down and straighten up, lol

The birthcenter I went to did a minimum of 4 hours, because they wanted to make sure mommy & baby's vitals were good for that long. They said the average stay was about 9-10 hours, but I always left at 4 lol. Going home that soon was a perk for me though...

Is there anyone (parent or someone) who can help you for the first few nights home? My mom always came to help me the first 10-14 days. She usually would tend to the older ones while I tended to the baby.

I know you are a first timer, but I highly recommend looking into natural labor! I regret getting drugs with my first, I feel it led me down a rabbit hole that contributed to my c-section. Labor does not have to be painful in an unbearable way. Please read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. You don't need drugs to do what your body is meant to do! (sorry if this comes across wrong, but after my two c-sections I have become a natural birth supporter in a HUGE way. i don't want other women to go through what I went through, I wish someone had told me about natural childbirth all those years ago)

I am having a natural vba2c in a hospital, and I don't know how long I want to stay. With my other two it was a 3-4 day stay due to constipation and the pain making me feel more comfortable in the hospital, I was afraid to leave, but if I rock my Vba2c, I think after a day I would like to go home and just relax and enjoy my baby. I am actually so excited and looking forward to giving birth.

Awwww, it looks like a puppy to me :)



I used to joke at the beginning of my pregnancy when people asked me what I was hoping for..... I'd say, "Puppies!"

Thanks for the advice. We go for an all day class at the hospital in two wks. Everything will be discussed.. all options and such.



And I jumped the gun w/out being clear that when I mean "There will be drugs" --- I mostly mean that I want an epidural if I can. I'm not leaning much toward painkillers since I'm allergic to most of them (lucky me, eh?). I just fear having an experience like my mom --- 90mins labor for me, 31mins with my sister (from time water broke til birth --- they told her if she had a third, she might as well plan on a home birth b/c she probably wouldn't make it in time). There was no time for ANYTHING and she just describes it as being horrendous! And when they did an episiotomy, they accidentally cut her straight through to the anus. She makes childbirth sound like a fate worse than death, so naturally, I'm terrified! LOL
