Re: Anyone else excited about labor?

I'm excited to experience the natural progression of labor since I was pitocin induced with DS. I am reading a lot, especially about the Bradley method. This may sound awful, but I actually don't want that much help from my husband though. Judging from my last labor, I'm easily irritated while in pain. . .

So, I guess what I'm mainly taking from the Bradley method is the positioning, breathing, and overall mindset, not so much the partner stuff.

Hypnobabies sounds neat, but I truly don't think I can stop my critical thinking long enough to allow myself to be hypnotized! The whole time I would be like "I don't think this is working, what if this doesn't work, I don't feel hypnotized, what do I need to get at the grocery store. . . " I have a hard enough time clearing my mind at the end of a yoga class!
