I never knew this was possible - but now I do

1. Natural childbirth.I said from the beginning of my pregnancy that I wanted to have a natural childbirth, and by natural I mean vaginally and NO DRUGS. Generally people would laugh and say “We will see how that goes”….even my Family Doctor! Needless to say, I decided to have a Midwife for my prenatal/postpartum care, simply because I knew they would be more supportive than an OB-GYN. I did manage to do it all natural, which I’m sure surprised everyone (even myself in a way because I do have a tendancy to point out to everyone every second I am in pain....more

thank-you "Crackberry"

Thank-goodness for Blackberry. I finally crossed the line just over a month ago and looking back I honestly don’t see how I survived.
