    Nothing Ever Goes To Plan... Especially For Me, So Iv Just Said Ideally Id Like To Ring The Maternity Unit When Im In Labour Just To Let Them Know, Then Stay At Home As Long As Possible Until Either I Cant Stand The Pain Any Longer Or My Waters Break. Id Like To Stay At Home Until Contractions Are 4-5 Minutes Apart Though So I'll Be Aiming For That. Then I Will Try Not To Have Pain Relief Unless Absolutely Nessasary. I Just Dont Like The Idea Of It, I Dont Know Why Lol Thats Just Me..Im The Same When Im Ill Or In Pain But Labour Is Another Matter & I Know There's No Prize For No Pain Relief So Obviously If Needs Be Then I Will Try Some Although An Epidural Would Be a Last Resort & Id Have To Be Very Very Desperate First. I Want Skin To Skin & The OH To Cut The Cord. I Also Want To Try Breastfeeding asap. Apart From That What Will Be Will Be Really :)

    I'd like to stay at home as long as possible and then make my way to hospital as soon as the contractions become regular (about 5 mins appart). I'll then call the hosp and obstetrician and let them know i'm on my way! I'd then like to try to avoid artificial pain relief until I'm about 6cm dialated so I can keep as mobile as possible and then I would like to have an mobile epidural for the last part of labour. My hubby will be present the whole time and hopefully giving me nice back massages and soothing words! I'd like to avoid (if possible) giving birth on my back and attempt it crouching so I have gravity on my side :D When bubs is delivered I'd hopefully like my hubby to cut the cord and the baby straight on me. Obviously if anything goes wrong then the plan is just to get the baby out in the safest and most appropriate way to ensure we are both safe and well.

    I tend to go quite quickly once I start - last pregnancy 1st and 2nd contraction was roughly 10 mins apart, then straight to 2 mins apart. Hence I'll go straight to hospital then which takes roughly 50mins to get to in the daytime, made it in half hour in the night with last labour. Was already 8 cms when i got there.

    Hopefully will have a water birth, if not then I just wanna be upright and active. Baby passed straight to me. No injection for placenta and I'm gonna cut the cord.

    Think thats it - ooh yeah, i'll have gas and air.

    If i need a c-section then i'd also like no screen, a BIG mirror above so i can watch and to have it video'd, cutting as well :lol:

    If i go natural then i'll take what pain relief i can when i feel i need it and cut the cord myself as dh is to squeamish and also wait for the cord to stop pulsating first. oh and i want baby put straight onto me before being cleaned unless there is a problem.
