    I'm not afraid of natural labour. I had 2 induced labours and the 3rd I went into labour naturally and it was much nicer experience. So I am afraid of induced labour only. This time round i have already asked how long they will let me go over in anticipation

    I am a little, mainly due to my first labour being complicated and now being high risk.
    I know if I can use the bath and move around Ill be fine.

    I had moments hoping for another breech so it wouldn't be my choice any more.

    No not at all. I looked forward to it with my DD and was even shaking with excitement after getting my show. I had an intense, short 4 hour labour with just gas and using the shower but I tore 3rd degree class c. Even though I had months of recovery I still loved my birth and labour and look forward to experiencing it all again. The only thing that scares me is the length of my next labours. I hope I make it to the hospy in time.
