hi can I join we are ttc come the middle of January this will be baby no6 and our last as hubby will be getting the snip after this one. we are waiting til then as we have mostly summer birthdays so hoping to spread them out a bit plus I didn't want to try over Christmas as id like to celebrate with everyone else and have a little drink plus coming off the pill messes my hormones up so I can be quite snappy so didn't want to have the ump over xmas.
I'm doing Pilates to try and strengthen my core as much as possible, my abs are still separated from my first birth so want to get that under control as much as possible before stretching them out again.
I've been feeling super anxious about going through another birth lately - we're not even TTC yet but I'm scared. My first was an induction at 39 weeks due to bleeding, and while it wasn't as bad as some super traumatic stories I've read on here, it was scary and difficult. I'm scared I won't be able to do it again. Anybody else thinking about birth already, or mostly just focusing on the pregnancy step?
Birth hasn't been anything I've been thinking about actually. I was induced at 39 weeks due to high BP and had a 25 hour labor with an hour of pushing. Nurse and doctor practically begged me to get the epi at only 4cm as I was in so much pain. But after that it was nice. I'd do it again except get the epi earlier.
I'm mostly worried about surviving a repeat of the 24/7 nausea with an extremely active toddler!
