Just curious if others were keeping their HB on the DL
My family/friends don't know that I have switched from an OB to a home birth MW and I have no desire to clue them in until after the birth. My last appt w/ my ob was quite stressful. I told my mother about it and she couldn't believe what was said to me and thought I should have stood up for myself better. Instead I decided to not deal w/ it and find a more supportive provider. I just feel that I don't need any negativity around me right now. After cupcake is born I definitely plan to tell the world and get the word out b/c I don't think we should have to hide our decision or feel bad about it. I'm definitely ashamed in myself that I'm not putting it out there right now, but I just cannot deal w/ more stress at this point.
So, am I the only chicken in this room right now?
