While I sit here in the 2 week wait and over the past year and a bit trying to conceive, I have had a lot of time to think about what pregnancy and birth will be like again.
I enjoyed being pregnant. I enjoyed the labor process, and birth was pretty okay too, but there is a big difference between my first and last when I think about it. I knew so much more and trusted the process a lot more (and myself) by the time I was pregnant with my third child than I was with my first child. It’s funny how hindsight can give us a lot of information, but it’s also kind of mean because then I wonder — if only I knew then.
I know I can’t change anything, and I really did learn a lot and things turned out okay, but if I could go back in time and change a few things about pregnancy, labor, birth and life with a new baby — I would. Click through and read the 9 things I would go back and do differently if I could:
