Another One On The Way!!

I am unexpectedly, but happily pregnant again. Ok, well, I'm not happily pregnant. Well, I am, but I'm not. LOL! What I mean is I am happy to be having another baby, but I have to admit, I don't like being pregnant. I'll take labor and delivery over 1st trimester symptoms any day! Ugh!

Adding to the difficulty is trying to decided where to birth and who will attend? Should I stick with my usual OB (who's pushed inductions the last two times? Thankfully, I avoided them!) Should I go with a team of midwives who deliver at my usual hospital (the same hospital that has a really crappy recovery, is overcrowded now and ripped off my insurance company)? Should I go for a midwife and deliver at a hospital that has a poor reputation, is far for my husband to get to should he be working out of town when I deliver, but my sister had a good birthing experience there? There are no independent birthing centers here and home birth is not an option.

I don't know. It's driving me nuts. I'm too pregnant to make decisions for myself! LOL! Someone tell me what to do! LOL!

congrats! i would go with the midwife, no doubt! is it really far for your husband? we live an hour from the hospital, and my husband works 25 min in the opposite direction...so about 1 1/2 hours from the hospital, but we make it!

Wonderful news. I am like you as I'll take the labor and delivery over the 9 months anytime.

First breath in (i'll wait)
Now breathe out.
Do this often for the next 8 months.
Take your time making decisions. Feel things out and pray, pray, pray for guidance. It will be ok.

I'm excited for you and how are your others babies taking it?
