What I Really Want

3 Sep

I want to keep my cool during labor, and not be overwhelmed by anxiety.

I want to labor naturally until I’m about 5cm dilated, then get an epidural. And I want that epidural to work perfectly. Because the pain from pushing and crowning scares the eff out of me.

I want to try to be calm enough so that I won’t feel the need to constantly be hooked up to a fetal monitor until it’s absolutely necessary.

I want a simple labor, with no complications.

I want her to come out easily, without doing too much damage to me, and without doing any to herself.

I want her to be here already. Alive. Screaming. Crying. Doing what babies do.

In my arms.

I’m being admitted for induction as we speak. Wish me luck.

I’ll see you guys on the flip side.
