Since September came, I have been experiencing frequent Braxton Hicks contractions within a single day and I believe that my pre-labor period has already started. Meaning, anytime soon starting maybe on the 9th, I will be expecting my baby’s arrival.
Honestly, I am really excited and a little bit worried. It’s been 5 years since I have been into labor. Aside from that, my two children were born under the supervision of the same doctor and now I will be sharing this experience with a new OB. I really don’t know how my new OB will handle me since when I am giving birth; I am a whole different kind of person because of the pain. With my first child, I was the meanest laboring woman at the delivery table. With my second child, I was the most kind of all saying thank you to everyone I am able to set my eyes into. Right now, I don’t know how I will behave though I have been reading more on how to behave during labor and delivery. But mind you, head knowledge is easy to say but hard to do when you are suffering from pain.
Anyway, the excitement of seeing my third bundle of joy is there but sometimes thinking about the labor pains makes me scared as hell. I just hope and pray that I will do well when the big day comes. Though this is my third child, I couldn’t say I am an expert on child labor and delivery. And I believe nobody becomes an expert when you are doing a normal child delivery because every time you give birth, it is a whole new experience – different in each child you bring to this world!
