childbirth woes :( and lots of lovelies :)

6 years ago

I had such a busy day today with a prenatal check-up, some shopping (I found a bikini to take to Florida, yay) and then childbirth class, where they told us all about pain meds and c-sections. I really want to try for a natural birth and we have watched so many documentaries on it that we are convinced it is the best option for us and the baby. Tonight however made it clear again that hospitals are simply not into letting you do it the way you want it. 1 out of 4 women in the US actually has a c-section which is absolutely crazy to me. There is no way that such a high percentage of women need to deliver this way. My hospital's rate is 27%!!! What in the world did we do before c-sections were possible? I really am trying hard to not let this get to me too much since I don't want to go into the whole process being scared. I am pretty confident that things will work out and we are hopefully going to be able to spend as much of my labor at home as possible. If it were easier to have a home birth I think I would never even enter the hospital. Hubby has been a little upset since we got home because he just doesn't like the way things have been presented to us so far. I am glad he is so concerned, I know he cares and is worried about me and the baby but I don't want him to get too frustrated. I am confident that I have everything that is needed to bring this child into the world :) 

Ok so enough of that for now ;) I don't want to bore you all too much...

Instead let me show you some of the gorgeous Bloom necklaces I have available in my Etsy shop right now. I added some new pictures to my listings and here they are. See anything you like? Just head on over here. I've been working on some new things that I will start to list tomorrow so check back for that too.
