    I had a hideous nightmare delivery last time (worst day of my life!) so this time I would like to hypnobirth in a pool with gas and possibly try pethidine (never tried that).
    What would you like? x

    I have found the older have got the worse my labours have been. I also have very fast labours and now I'm worried about not getting to the hospital in time I honestly don't think I will make it. I would quite like to be induced so I have a little control over it.

    I am if the dr's think that it would be safe to do so. I know it's my choice and whatever but I'm not one to go against medical advice when it comes to pregnancy and birth stuff.
    I've always wanted a home birth but I don't think it's favourable for a VBAC and that traumatic birth on obem has put me right off that one!
    A nice water birth with a bit of gas would suit me fine :) x

    You're more than welcome to stalk hun :)
    I'll be interested to see what advice I get from the hospital. With 3 vaginal deliveries under my belt and just on c section I think they may agree to it x

    With regards to the water they'll probably try and get you away from it as they might say continous monitoring to keep an eye on uterine rupture but monitoring doesn't actually give them any indication for it. Just in case they try and tell you that lol.

    I think you'll vbac no problems. Really wishing you a lovely relaxed birth :love:

    I dreamt the other night that I had had an extremely quick birth and the next day I was like did I really dream that - of course I am sure it will not happen like that. Hubby has expressed feelings he would not be keen for me to have an epidural because of the pethidine ?? I have used laughing gas for dental work so im guessing gas an air is pretty much the same and boy did it relax me so perhaps just that.

    I am warming to a water birth with gas and air, its looks very relaxing and i love hot baths anyway but im not oppose to an epidural if things take a turn for the worst! xxx
