As many of you know, My husband and I are for sure going to try and conceive baby #2 in January '09. I've had my doubts here and there, about being ready. I'm an anxious person in general, something that's been hard my whole life, so I tend to worry unnecessarily as it is. I had such a rough pregnancy with my first, and had no idea what to expect. I wish I had known then what I know now, but there's not point in dwelling on the past. I may not have been able to have the natural labor that I wanted then, but I am starting to feel so empowered for the next time around. Before I was so scared of getting pregnant again, in fear that it would be difficult like my last... but after reading the success so many of you have had here, I KNOW I can do it. It makes me less afraid, and more prepared. I can't wait to get pregnant now, January feels so far away! I'm ready to exercise and eat right, read up and explore my options, and makes sure I have the labor I've always wanted (unless unavoidable complications arrive of course). Thank you gals so much!

woohoo! That is just such a wonderful post.

I think your next pregnancy will be much easier on you. Every baby is different, and so is every pregnancy. I'm a firm believer in that your emotions effect your health- so all the good feelings you have will make next time much different.

oh- and your diet will definatly make a difference too- eating well is so beneficial.

That's wonderful! I think knowledge and also the way you look at things is so important. Already having one birth under your belt and now building up the confidence that you can achieve a NCB, this will make success even more attainable.

Good luck TTC!

I am so glad you are here! It's such a wonderful feeling knowing that you CAN do something you want so badly. I truly believe you will achieve that birth this time and your next pregnancy will be better too. I can't wait to hear that you are trying again. Someone else to stalk!
