I'm also hoping for a natural childbirth (though I'm not SUPER set on it.... extreme situations may change my mind ). My main issue is I really don't want to be induced because I don't want the extra risk of C-section.

I have a clotting disorder and will see a high risk OB once I graduate from the RE, and I am terrified of them telling me that I will have to induce before 40 weeks. I want my baby to be able to arrive when he/she is ready, and I want my baby to have a mom who is awake, alert, and able to care for him/her as much as possible- not recovering from major surgery.

But you voiced my thoughts exactly. Sometimes I feel guilty for wanting to control my labor, when the chance to labor at all is such a gift.
