Ok, so this is completely pointless, because things very rarely turn out as planned, but if you could plan your absolute perfect pregnancy, what would it look like? *disclaimer* Yes, healthy baby, healthy mom is the absolute TOPS, no questions asked, regardless of any circumstance, but I love to dream about the future, so here I go...
I would love to get pregnant in Oct 2014 so that there is a bit of a gap between the first and second, then also we would have a summer birthday! (Not going to lie, a winter birthday for babycakes kinda bums me out. I LOVED my August outdoor, summer birthday parties - water balloons, BBQs, camp-out slumber parties, etc. My sister was a winter baby and I always felt bad for her....we'll see if my feelings change.)
Also, if I got pregnant in Oct, I'd wait until the first of the year to go in for my first appointment so it's all under the same deductible (I'm cheap, ok?). I don't care at all as far as sex of the next kid, though I do think DH would like a son.
I would like to have a VBAC, but then have them do a tubal ligation.
Yep, ok, that is my dream plan. Anyone else think like that?
Ideally I would get pregnant fall/winter 2014. I'd love to have my kid 2-3 years apart ideally. It would be fun to have one of each and maybe there would be some gender disappointment if it was another girl but idk because I'm loving my sweet Vivi so a sister could be fun! I have no sisters or girl cousins so I think it makes me more nervous than having a boy since I don't completely understand that relationship.
Also id love no morning sickness or heartburn lol
And finally a VBAC. I just always feel like something's missing from my birthing experience. I tear up when I hear of vaginal delivery stories because I wish I knew what that was like. But who knows.
I would be in a financial position to get pregnant in March of 2014 (id love a Christmas baby) and then DS2 and the baby would be about 2 yrs apart and DS1 would be 3 1/2. I have a summer baby already and have no desire to be heavily pregnant during an Arizona summer.
I would have NO nausea/vomiting (i am SO over that after two pregnancies)
I would be one of those women who looks great and feels great with an abundant amount of energy and therefore have no issues working throughout the pregnancy.
My labor would be complication free (a concept that I can barely even imagine)
I would like a girl but ive already prepared myself for all boys lol so gender doesnt matter
Its nice to dream but in reality probably none of these things will happen which is why I need at least another year to mentally prepare myself for another pregnancy
I had a pretty good pregnancy and labor so other than the dizzy feeling I got when standing still too long, is hope it be the same . As for gender, I see the benefits of either. Having two girls would be fun, but having a boy is also something id love. I guess if I had to choose, Id prefer a boy but that is just for DH and so I could experience having a kid of the opposite sex.
I always wanted an October baby so ideally if get pregnant in January.
This is a tough question for me to answer. Given my problems with infertility, I would say my dream pregnancy is any one that occurs without the aid of science. After TTC naturally for so many years, only to need IVF/ICSI to conceive our little guy, I won't be picky
All that said, if I had my druthers, I would:
* have a spring/summer baby
* have a pregnancy with NO heartburn and nausea
* make sure I craved chocolate again
