A Catholic's journey through infertility, pregnancy and now motherhood.
"The Lord does not delay his promise, as some regard 'delay,' but he is patient with you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9
Nicely done! Do you have a supportive ob/midwife?
Very similar to ours! Our Bradley teacher suggested we add "throughout the duration of labor and delivery" to the intermittent monitoring. She said a lot of docs/nurses are ok with that until the pushing stage, then they want it on all the time.I'm so excited for you!
Thanks for posting this! Kaitlin sent me hers last night too. I joked with K last night that I'm just going to change the names because you both said exactly what I was wanting to say. :)
Sounds like a great plan for a natural birth. I admire you all, I didn't even desire to go there :) I had a tiny episiotomy and it wasn't a big deal. I trusted my doc (and we talked beforehand) to choose the best option for me on that. Evidently a small episiotomy is better than a tear to recover from, but some crazy docs do them automatically! If you trust your doc, I am sure they will make the best choice for a quick and easy recovery.
