I am proud of all our decisions. The midwife, homebirth, natural labor, pushing for NINE hours.

But, based off of the fallout I have seen on here from others, I am really most proud of myself for being able to let go and understand that a c/section was the birth she needed, and forgive her, and forgive myself, and forgive my midwife....because truly it is a harder thing to do than anything involved with the actual birth.

^^I would be proud of that too mama. You deserve to be. Because I agree, that having your best laid plans go awry and being able to adapt to the new ones is one of the hardest things about this whole thing. I was failing miserably!

i'm mostly just happy that i went a week late even though i had a u/s that said big baby and suspected a big baby, am a very small framed and thin person, and had a 10.9 lb baby with a 15 inch head and chest without tearing or PAIN. i feel like i put the age old big baby debate to bed and it feels **** good.

I'm so proud that I went into labor on my OWN and that I labored naturally (no meds or pain relief). Unfortunately, I did have to have an emergency c/s... but unlike my first c/s, I accept that it had to happen... because I know it was *actually* needed and that no interventions contributed to it (unlike with my first c/s). I also had great midwives.

Really hoping for a VBA2C this time!!

I wouldn't have changed my choice of midwife. If I had used anyone else or even gone to the birth center that I used with my 2nd DD, I would have ended up with an induction and that could have greatly changed the outcome of my labor and birth. As much as it sucked to be pregnant so long, I'm glad my midwife encouraged me to wait it out and didn't push induction.
