I have only been in here since the start of this pregnancy but i have taken away a lot and changed my ideas of birth how i want it to go.

Some examples:
I wont even consider an induction now unless medically necessary and by necessary i mean there's danger. I mean you guys are right, why force your baby to come out if he/she isnt ready?

I will be refusing pitocin, which will be new cuz i had it with both of my last 2 labors.

I def wont trust and u/s to determine baby's size


I wont let anyone pressure or scare me into anything


So thanks :)

I really wish i had been more informed on this stuff with my first 2. I feel much more educated now.

Wonderful lessons! 

I did a ton of research and those were all conclusions I came to last time.  I'm glad that there is actually wisdom somewhere on CM and not just judgment :) 

Good luck!

Pitocin sucks so much! I was so glad to not have it after my first two. Birth is easier when you can move arround and arent constantly monitored lol.

Im interested to see how labor differs without it. Im not due til Nov 1 though. Im planning on laboring at home until i get pretty close to delivery.

People have a lot of negative things to say about CM, but us moms can be really helpful!

I'm glad you've found support and information here, that's what I found when I was pregnant with my oldest. I was young and unaware, I started seeing differing opinions here, on CM. I knew enough to know that everything I read on a mom board isn't fact, but the different opinions opened my mind and compelled me to do my own research. I felt much more in control and over all just happier, because I had my own opinion and could back it up with information. Rather than just blindly following what I was told to do.

Good for you, Momma!
