What was the best part of your previous pregnancy? Being able to actually enjoy it and not be stressed out. With DS1 I was 19, single, and felt like my world was falling apart because of the stress. DS2 everything was how life was suppose to be, have a house, car, husband, etc. So I felt more ready I guess you could say.
Worst? The days I didn't have enough energy to do everything that I was use to doing for DS1. First tri and the last few weeks were the worst.
Most unexpected? I almost failed my gestational diabeties test by one point.
Delivery (c section, vaginal, drugs, natural): vaginal, with epidural for both
What do you hope is different about the pregnancy next time?: to not have any more losses.
What do you hope is different about the delivery?: my labor with DS2 was sorta scary. I had a reaction to the epidural, either they put it in wrong or gave me too high of a dose and my blood pressure dropped to like 70/30. It was borderline high when I was admitted to begin with. All I remember was telling the nurse I couldn't hear anything and I could feel myself passing out. 5 doctors later and a shot of something I'm my IV I was fine. It felt like an hour but it was all over I'm a matter of seconds. Because of that I am paranoid to have another epi and may use a birth center instead.
Was your first (2nd, 3rd) an easy baby?: DS1 was a colicky, high demand, acid reflux, asthma having baby. He's still high demand even though he's 9, but perfect in every other way. DS2 was quiet, laid back, but a craptastic sleeper.
What will you do differently in the early months this time around?: have the baby sleep in its crib no matter what. Still trying to gt DS2 out of my bed.
