So edging into my glorious 9th month of pregnancy....I am starting to wonder exactly how this birth is going to go down. For the first time ever I am opting out of an induction. I didnt have a choice with Brigitte ( I had high blood pressure so they took her 3 days early) and with Spencer I elected to have him a week early. Which in retrospect was most likely the reason his birth was slightly traumatic for me. Hence, the decision to just let nature take its course this time.
I have never gone into labor. EVER! Ive never had a fun "my water just broke" moment. I have never felt a natural contraction that wasnt the result of a hideous pitocin drip sending me into the depths of hell repeatedly - without a break for air. So Im wondering...how's this gonna be?
So tell me. All you seasoned veterans out there that have had 3 deliveries.....Was your third baby early, on time, or late? And how fast was your labor with your third in comparison to your first 2 deliveries? And last, did your water break or did contractions send you to the hospital?
I know I know, there is no way for me to know exactly how my experience is going to play out, but Im just curious. Im basically a ticking time bomb now and its so hard to feel unprepared! So dish out your best advice for me....3 kids is going to be slightly hilarious!
