First post of 2018 and I wanted to start it with my natural birth story. When I asked some of you last year if you wanted to know about my home birth, so many of you said that you did. And so here it is! It's a bit of a long post, so make sure you get comfy!
This pregnancy was unlike all my other 3 pregnancies as I usually tend to feel much better towards the end. However this time around, I was super emotional and exhausted for the entire pregnancy. I hardly had any physical strength left, and I wasn't mentally prepared to face the labour, AT ALL.
I had been experiencing practice contractions (which are called Braxton Hicks) since the beginning of my second trimester, which by the time I had 3 weeks left of my pregnancy, had turned into contractions, but they weren't regular or painful, just intense. So nothing to write home about so to speak.
