I'm NOT planning on making a birth plan because I want to just "go with the flow" and I feel that I can voice my opinions loud enough when I go into labor and I am at the hospital. Plus, anything that would be included isn't that big of a deal to me (Like if they treat the baby's eyes after birth and stuff like that.) I trust my doc and his staff, for the most part.
My pregnancy was going by slowly in the beginning (until I found out what I was having at 19 weeks, 6 days!) and now it's seemed to go by pretty fast, but as hot and miserable as I am now, I know the last few weeks are going to DRAG on!
I AM so ready to have this baby! I do feel a bit unprepared as far as taking care of her goes, but I am trusting my instincts. I just want her OUTTA ME!
I am only in my seventh week, so I can't really tell if it's gone by quickly or slowly. I guess quickly because I thought I was only four or five weeks, and the doctor told me I'd be eight weeks this wed., so it seems like I missed a lot of time in there. Still in the "oh my gosh I can't believe it" phase, and trying to figure out the crazy world of pregnancy.
I'm not answering the questions LOL! I think I am going to make a birthplan, because I looked at a little guide for making one, and I didnt' know what the heck half the things are, so I am going to make a birthplan just to know what my options are and think about them ahead of time, so I'm ready to make those choices. I also want to "go with the flow" though, so I won't be strict about it if something comes up or the doctor thinks a different way would be better.
I think I will be ready to have this baby in seven months, or even sooner than that. I feel very confident in my ability to care for the baby; if anything I'm worried about finances and school (both my husband and I are getting ready to graduate from school this year, but I am pretty sure that will have to change)
