    Default IVF Babies Due Jan/Feb/Mar 2013 #3

    Hey Ladies quiet weekend! Hope all is well. No more fainting for me yet which great, hopefully it was a 1 off thing. Hanging out for my scan in 1.5 weeks, as usual just want to know all is ok.

    Lately everyone keeps asking if I have a birth plan, I don't yet, does everyone else? TBH I kinda feel terrified about giving birth!

    Default IVF Babies Due Jan/Feb/Mar 2013 #2

    Lol my partner keeps telling me to stop watching birthing shows and utube clips lol as I will scare myself silly. I'm not at all scared. I want to be prepared. I'm having bub at a birthing centre so I'm hoping for a drug free/minimal drug birth. Hoping that I can just keep myself distracted and working through pain until it's time to push. I know I don't know what I'm in for as it's my first baby and I think it's good to know what you want and understand in yourself that if things dont go how you expect it that its still ok. People are too hard on themselves. Juju sundins birth skills with Sarah Murdoch is a good book that aims at a natural birth and has all these little tips on how to distract yourself like focussing on the tiles in the bathroom and counting them to keep your mind off the situation.

    Default IVF Babies Due Jan/Feb/Mar 2013 #2

    I've been mia for awhile, sorry!

    My birth plan is to get the baby out! I'm hoping for a natural birth with very little to no intervention (I only had gas with DD). I used the shower, bath & fit ball mainly for distraction. I will however pant this time when the midwife tells me too and not push, hopefully then I won't need stitches.

    Birth plan = elective c - section, hopefully more pleasant than the first emergency one!

    Glad to hear no more fainting for you...

    A midwife from our hospital called me for a consultation a couple of weeks ago and asked me if I had a birth plan and I thought it was a bit early but maybe not, lol! I guess the only thing I know is that I want to have a vaginal birth - no more decisions on that yet. I guess it also depends on how elaborate you want your birth plan to be. Some women go as far as listing the music they want played in the room etc - whilst I'm a very organised and control freak type of person I don't think I will go that far. Yes, labour is definitely a frightening thought but women do it every single day and it's a normal thing so should be fine : )

    I have the same mindset broomdyke - going to try and distract myself until it's time to push but like you said you never know...I am all for gathering information am obsessed with watching one born every minute because it's so graphic lol (the UK version)
