Sorry, I hope to be a more regular poster here...definitely a lurker though. So this pregnancy is starting to sink in and I'm starting to think about what I want for the birth.

For Noah, we did the Bradley classes and had a perfect birth, literally nothing went off the "plan" except maybe 2 things. 1-They broke my water when I was 9.5cm and was having difficulty with that last little bit (I don't regret this, cuz I was ready to push within 20 min after this). 2-They gave me a shot of local b/c dr was sure i would tear (i didn't).

So you would think I would be naive and think this birth will go great, but of course I'm scared to death thinking that i just got lucky the first time and this one is going to go horribly. Regardless, I want to be prepared either way. What should I be reading or doing to prepare???

I plan on going back through my Bradley workbook starting in Nov/Dec week by week as if I was doing the class. I don't know if I really need to re-read the 2 bradley books or ina may's, but i was thinking of looking at "the thinking woman's guide to a better birth" again. What other books could I read this time??? I think I'd also like to read up more on newborn procedures this time. Sorry for the long-winded questions.
Mommy to Noah (4.5) and Emilee (2.5)
