Re: ???Natural Birth Due Date Check-In???

  • We met with our doula this weekend.  First time since we hired her that we've had a meeting.  She will be coming to our home visit next week when the midwife comes so they can all meet and see the house.  My DH has been re-tiling the house, so I'm really hoping he's done by then.  All he has left to do is grout, so it really shouldn't be a problem.

     QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

    I hate when people ask me my due date.  I just tell them the end of March.  Most people already think I'm really small, so at  least I'm not getting the "You're going to pop at any minute" spiel.   I enjoy discussing that we don't know the sex.  Many people are really into that and think it's cool, which is nice.

  •  QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

    I don't like when people I don't know that well ask about our names. We do have them decided, but I don't want to tell everyone because I just don't care about their opinions!

    I enjoy discussing how I feel, any kicks, etc. Basically, anything but the names :)

    imageimage
  • Update for me: We're going to be in a Birth Center, not a hospital! I have my first MW appt. tomorrow; so excited! It'll be so nice to have someone who actually wants to hear what I have to say; my OB was terrible and really didn't care about me. Sad

    QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

     

     

    I am SO SICK of  "How are you feeling?" I haven't been sick one day during this pg. In fact, if it weren't for the lack of AF and extreme tiredness, I wouldn't even know I was pg. It's gotten to the point now when I am asked this question, I just say "I'm fine. How are YOU feeling?"

    I like discussing natural birth, etc. Most of the people I've been discussing this with are family (very supportive), but it will be interesting to see what some outsiders/naysayers think. I like to stir the sh!t sometimes. Smile

  • QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

     

    Two questions I hate:

     

    1) Are you sure there aren't two in there?

    Oh just shut up already, I'm just a little girl with a big belly. 

     

    2)Shouldn't you be feeling better by now?

    YES!!!!! I should, but I have HG and I've been sick as a dog for 8 months.  The zofran is the only thing keeping me sane.  Thanks for letting me know I *should* be feeling better. 

     

    I don't mind people asking other questions.  Good thing, because I work in a steel mill, and you can just imagine how many pregnant women they get around here.  I'm like a circus freak.  And everybody wants to talk about it. 

    Please forgive my typos! I'm not as dumb as my iphone would like you to believe :)

  • QOTW:

    I hate the How are you feeling question too!  I'm a teacher, so between staff members and parents I get asked this about 500 times a day and for the most part I feel fine!  And do people really want to know that my hips hurt and I had wicked heartburn last night? Stick out tongue

    I like talking about positive birth stories and the joys and trials of being a parent.  Mostly, I do like talking about pregnancy and babies with people.

  • QOTW:

    I've only popped recently, so I feel like I'm answering the same questions over and over that most people ask at 20 something weeks. I'm not a shy person and I talk to everyone. I know that I've told everyone already that I'm a boy. But it's like now that I'm showing, I keep getting asked, "Do you know what you're having?" and I can't help myself, I reply, "Yes, we've known since Halloween." Yup. That's how long I've known and I'm pretty sure I told you then!!!!

    I'm also sick of people telling me to get the epidural. There's a few natural birth teachers at school and I like to hear their stories. One had 4 natural births (1 c/s)!! So inspiring!

  • Updates: We hired a doula (actually a montrice) and are about to turn in our registration for childbirth classes (Brio Birth).

    QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others? 

    Least favorite questions would have to be about my birthing choices. Yes, I want a natural childbirth, no I'm not trying to be a delivery room hero. I just want to see what my body can do on its own. I'm not out to prove anything or make anyone feel bad about their birth, I just have my own set of personal preferences. 

    I enjoy discussing plans for the baby's room with people. I love to decorate and am very much a "planner" so I'm really looking forward to putting together the Little Dude's space.

  • Updates: I'm now officially overdue, and dreading my appointment tomorrow. I know my OB is going to want to schedule and induction date for early next week.

    QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others? 

    I am SO tired of getting text messages and phone calls of "Have you had the baby yet?" or "There is a snowstorm coming, do you think you'll have the baby?" At this point, I'm very ready to give birth and there isn't much to do but wait it out! I know everybody is just excited for us, but it's really driving me crazy. Especially from my MIL- of course she will know when we go to have the baby!

  • I had a checkup yesterday morning and they are weekly from here on out! Surprise  My midwife did my GBS swab so I will be anxiously awaiting to hear about those results next week.  Not going to lie, I'm a little nervous!  It's just one of those things that can change the way you were imagining your experience just a little bit.  But anyway, I kept debating whether or not I wanted to know my "stats".  Well, I just went ahead with it (but will be doing NO more internals until I'm in labor)!  However, my cervix is still very far back but, as best as she could tell, I'm 1-2cm, 50% and -2.  Whoopee, lol.

    QOTW: I hate it when people ask what I "want" (referring to a boy or a girl).  It's the worst question.  Or what I "think it is".  I have no clue, lol.  And then they tell me what they think it is and I'm just like, "We'll seeeeee!"  That's probably one of the downfalls of being Team Green, lol.  I'm constantly hearing, "Oh, I could never do that," "I would just have to know," etc.  Yeah, yeah, yeah... good for you! lol

    I enjoy talking about my birthing preferences if I don't feel like I'm being challenged in my choice, lol.  Otherwise, forget it.  I don't mind discussing names too much, either, although it can get a little annoying when the same person keeps asking you about it.  The answer doesn't change! lol

  • QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

     

    I don't like all the talk about "when are you due?" because first-time moms are likely to go late... I'm afraid everyone will bother me for the entire month of March! (due March 25)

     

    I love talking about how big she is, what she can do, what she looks like... mostly the developmental stages, because that's what puts me in awe-her existence, life, growth!

  • QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

    I don't really like it when people ask me how I'm feeling/how things are going. If I'm honest, I sound like I'm whining so I usually just say "fine."

    I don't mind discussing baby moving, what I'm having, etc, but I try to avoid talking about when I'm due because I still have 10ish weeks left and people can't disguise their shock at my belly size. 

  • Starting Hypnobabies this week! Very excited to start!

     

    QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy? 

    If we picked out a name... DH and I had some nasty comments with some of the names we picked out from MIL and other people, so we learned early on not to share our name choices. We also don't want to be 'tied down' to a name either, just in case we change our minds. The baby will have a name! 

    What do you enjoy discussing with others?

    If I can have an informational conversation about their experience with birth.  I like to know how their hospital works and how they reacted towards situations that where handed to them during labor and delivery. (It might sound nasty of me and maybe get flamed for, but I pick up on little things that they may had done wrong(snowball of interventions) to validate for c-section ending... etc) I also like to hear about what they could have done differently. I was chatting with a lady I went to HS with and I told her that "I feel like I am studying for a final and I am doing TONS of research" she told me that it was a good thing because she was VERY unprepared and if she would have to do it again she would do as much research as she could, becasue her doctors really didn't answer her questions. They told her that there was so many possibilities. She also wish she would have asked for a second opinion before they induced her at 40 weeks becasue baby was 'ready' based off of what her doctor told her which ended in a c-section.

  • Least favorite question:
    - How are you feeling? (Only because it gets asked SO often and people seem disappointed when I say "fine" or "no complaints".)

    - What is her name? (I've finally started sharing, but for a long time I wanted to keep it private. I always hated lying to people, but I wasn't ready to share.)

    Other than that, I don't mind discussing other things like specific symptoms if people ask, nursery stuff etc..

    Now I haven't yet been asked any personal questions about breastfeeding etc.. I may have a whole new list of "least favorites" soon. :)

  • We have our monthly OB check up tomorrow. We STILL haven't interviewed any MWs...wonder how long we can procrastinate on that! I am frantically trying to wrap up my masters classes and thesis so I can focus on the end of the school year and this baby, including the home water birth that we are really leaning towards. Still no movement, but it has GOT to be coming soon! DD's first real flutters came at 16 1/2 weeks, and we just started week 17 today. Hmmm.....

    The least favorite question: vaccinations: to do them or not. I just feel like it is a loaded question and there is going to be opposition and judgement no matter what I answer. I feel that if parents educate themselves and make an informed decision, leave them alone. They questioned, researched, and made the decision they feel is best for their baby. That is, after all, what a good parent does. No need for judgement of their decision isn't the same as yours.

    We get amused by the "do you know what you're having" question. We didn't, we don't, and we won't. But it surer is fun watching people get shocked or outraged that not only do we not know, but we don't even want to know until the baby arrives. We really like it when we meet other 'old fashioned' people who applaud us for not finding out.

  • QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

    Least favourite when pregnant with DD was when are you due, because it was almost always followed by "first babies always come late".  This time it's probably "do you know what you're having?"  No I don't, and I don't want to!

    I have a bunch of friends who all had #1 around the same time and we are pregnant and due around the same time this time again.  It may not be a specific topic we discuss, but rather the sense of support and community that we all have together.

    Update:

    Babe is breech, but there is still lots of time to turn.  I'm hoping it's sooner than later though. 

    I've also decided that I'll deliver in the hospital again.  It's a really happy place for me.  My dad was a nurse there when I was young and I have many happy childhood memories from there.  It's a really friendly, small hospital and is very, very natural birth friendly, to the point that I'd say it's natural birth oriented.

  • QOTW: What is/was your least favorite question to be asked regarding your pregnancy?  What do you enjoy discussing with others?

     

    I hate that everybody asks me how I'm feeling. This is my third, and LO has been sitting really low all along, putting a lot of pressure on my hips and pelvic bones. I have been in pain all day, every single day, from this for the last 4 months. Do people really think this is going to change as the baby gets even bigger? I know they're trying to be nice and that some people really do care how I'm feeling. I just hate having to either lie and say "fine" or complain and tell the truth.

     

    I love talking about birth, babies, and BFing in general. It's fun (most of the time) that I work with a lot of people who have little to no experience in this area and that they are just genuinly curious about how it all works. I get to share my knowledge with people who are amazed with the whole thing  :)

     JennML10 ? Feb 26 ? Birthing Center ? Bradley

     

    We had our little girl Ellison Cordelia on February 17th, at our Birthing Center.  9 pounds 5 oz, 20 3/4 inches - all natural :) 

  • Finally ventured outside of my month board! EDD-July 11th, hospital, team blue, no chosen birthing method as of yet =) 
  • Please add me to your list:

    EDD: May 17

    Birthplace: Hospital

    Team: Blue

    Birth method: Bradley

     

    QOTW: I don't like it when people ask "How much weight have you gained?" I'm actually shocked that people even have the guts to ask this question. It seems totally off limits in my mind.

    I like talking about our Bradley classes, and all of the things we've learned going through this process so far.

    I don't really have a question that I don't like to answer about my pregnancy.  I feel like I'm only pregnant for a short time and people are genuinely asking questions because they want to know the answers.  :) 

    I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies.  I had a natural birth with my son was 5 1/2 weeks premature.  He simply came too fast for drugs, but I'm so glad it worked out that way.  Now I'm hoping Hypnobabies will help me with having a full-term baby that doesn't come in lightning speed.  :)

     Looking to getting to know you ladies. Im from BC, Canada. Things here are a lil different Midwives and Homebirths are Covered Under Medical (dont require insurance). I believe most midwives here bring alot of supplies but of course you have to provide as well which i hear is minimal!

     I am hoping my DH turns around when i bring up homebirth again and at least have him opening to talking to M/W first before absolutely saying no!
