sleep on it

by frankie_n_baby on Fri Jan 30, 2009 1:07 pm
Well, after having a good rest last night, I feel better about the whole birth thing. As my dh keeps reminding me, in many ways there is no "battle", because we won't be having a hospital birth (unless need to transfer urgently). I am beginning to understand the comments on the AIMS website about women becoming so fed up with it that they even consider having no mw. While I wouldn't have an unassisted birth, I do feel more anxious about who will be attending, and whether I get a nice mw....

I may well be tempting fate here but, can it really be that the whole rubbish cancer saga is over!? OH had his last round of chemo last night and I still don't think it has sunk in.
