Yep me! Ds I had an epi out of fear but it wore off after a few hours. So I was glad of that. It was painful but totally worth it. This time I'll hold off longer at home and I'll be using the Bradley method.

Um, NEGATIVE. I have only had one successful epidural, but I'm going to try for a second. The pain of childbirth is not for me. I do not have a very high pain tolerence.

With all of that said, I am trying to prepare myself mentally and emotionally for another natural birth.I do alright until crowning and pushing, which for me is only like a 10-20 minute process, but it is 20 minutes of the worst pain ever.

I'm thinking about it. I think a water birth could be a cool experience. However! That is dependent on how well I think I'll be able to tolerate and manage the pain and of course there being no last minute complications.

I went natural with DD..tbh I was a little disappointed in the experience. I thought I would have that euphoria everyone talks about but I didn't The birth was really long (nearly 48hrs) so I was up 2 nights in a row and was in so much pain I wanted to die. By the time DD was actually born I was just numb from exhaustion....I really had no emotion. I think if I would have had an epi I probably would have been able to get some sleep and would have been more with it when she was born.

Mostly I plan on going natural next time but once in a while I contemplate getting an epi. If I'm able to labor in the water at the hospital it's more incentive to go natural. Also I'm hoping for a much shorter labor this time around...I think the worst part of m labor with DD was that it was so dang long. I could have handled that pain for 8 hours much better but having it so long just wears you down.

Yes, I'm planning on it although, I won't be using the Hypnobabies technique.

I've had 2 babies naturally already, I know I can do it. I'll just have to push to not succumb to the thought that the epidural is going to be right there this time.

I'm looking into it because I really need to learn some relaxation and meditation techniques -- I'm way too Type A!

My mentality is just to be prepared, try to go natural, but if I can't then that's ok. I'd rather not set expectations on myself and be disappointed since this is my first baby and I have no idea what to expect, ya know?

I'm a runner and there's a certain amount of self talk that comes into play before and during race day. But this is totally different. With running, the mentality is that I've prepared by looking at the course, I have my fluids, I've trained, I can do this and finish how I want to.

With a first baby, it's almost the opposite -- I can't predict what's going to happen or how I'm going to feel or react. I'm "prepared" to a certain degree, but I just can't know everything.

You will love the hypnobabies it is completely that type of self talk for your birth and pregnancy. The hypnosis works very well and the a daily affirmation cd keeps me so calm. I love it!
The self talk keeps you in a very positive frame of mind preparing for your birthing focusing on all the things that could go right instead of wrong. Visualizing how it will be easy fast and comfortable. I know there is no way to predict exactly how it is going to go but for me focusing on the positive really helped me to have that kind of birth! Also I believe it can be very counter productive to encourage the subconscious mind to be fighting against the way your birth is meant to go. I am telling myself everyday that no matter how my birthing goes is ok and that is how it is supposed to be. Doing that sort of opens the door to helping me focus more on the positive and not fear the negative at the same time...I hope this sort of helps!!!!

I used hypnobabies with my 2nd baby. I wasn't able to get in a deep hypnosis but it still helped with labor & delivery!

I'm not the type to say I'm going to use a certain "method" I looked into each one and took bits and pieces that I thought would help me....I think Lamaze is the only method I skipped haha

I'm definitely going to have a natural birth, I decided that like the day after my last one was born lol. I had such a poor experience with medical interventions and since have done a lot of research. I'm to the point I won't even allow myself to think of other possibilities. I plan to use pieces of lots of different methods, and I will have my baby at home. I will be living in a very rural area with only one hospital and it won't allow for any kind of natural birthing. I'm not willing to give up so home it will be. I'm very stubborn though and I don't think I've ever really given up on something important to me so I don't forsee any issues lol.

no option here we will be doing a repeat C-section. most likely 3 full weeks or so b4 due date.
my firstborn was stillborn at 39 weeks with no explanation via C-section
my second child was born perfect at 36weeks via planned C-section
This is my last child due to medical reasons and complications and I fully plan on one last C-section.
at same time as birth I will also have my tubes tied n this very large ventricle hernia repaired.
I did always like the idea of a waterbirth, however in this lifetime I am just thrilled to have a live birth
