A few weeks ago I made a post about How Im am completely horrified about child birth, and that fear is whats preventing me from TTC with my husband because I was so scared!
Well… with your comments and support, and advice on what to read and how to EDUCATE myself, I am no longer afraid. In fact Im ready to embrace Mother hood and what it brings, I look forward to my body changing and seeing how mother nature takes over my body.
It’s amazing how receptive I was to the things I watched on TV, and the horror stories shared amongst women about child birth.
I realized that its all in how you take it, I can focus on the negative or I can hope for the best and think about more than just “pain”.
I also realized that labor is just a minor blipp in whats to come for me, I am going to bring a CHILD into this world!! and raise it for how ever many years!
So my advice to any girls TTC and feel they are not ready because they heard too many stories. I say let it all go ( easier said than done huh?) and Educate youself about your body and what really happens.
Surround yourself with supportive people and comforting experiences, I think this is what had me so scared before, but now I understand it more.
I used to avoid books and convos because all I remember is how Unbearable labor can be, but then I took the time to actually READ and LEARN about, and what I found out was amazing. We women totally rock.
That was my Keanu Reeeves moment.
