I have two healthy and lively boys aged 4 and 2, both have their birthdays before our new one will arrive. We have been really fortunate with each baby and have not struggled to get pregnant at all. We are hoping this one is our girl, but ultimately we all just hope for a healthy baby. Both of our boys were unplanned little bundles of joy and this is our first planned baby so maybe I won't be the only female in our family (I'm outnumbered 3:1).
My Birth Plan
I want to have a natural birth and I want the drugs this time. I had both my boys with an induction and nothing for the pain. I believe I deserve an epidural this time around. I don't want to feel a thing and want to be told to push without the urge to push through the pain. I will do whatever is necessary for a healthy baby, so if baby is in danger or anything stands in the way of my natural birth I am open to an operation (not my first choice though).
