THanks for that smile I feel extra nosey lol.
The reason im wanting one is im stressing out the labour, my mum has passed away so cant ask her about her labours but I know my sister had a very tough labour with both of her babies, I suffer from really bad anxiety and my M/W thinks i have high blood pressure so shes referred me to a ob. I know in myself that if i get anxious near the birth it wont go well and my blood pressure will go sky high. I dont want my baby to get distressed cause i am and the last reason im worried about my size, im a big girl who never thought she could have kids.
Im also 26 Weeks along and seeing the OB for the first time tomorrow. they are thinking because of my size and my mum who had gestational diabetes that I will get it too sad
Is this your first baby? I'm a big girl too (size 20-22 - 5"9 tall).
That was a contributing factor in my decision too. Not that I think big girls can't birth babies - but it leaves the stress of my weight causing me problems.
How are you feeling about it all? That's great you have a supportive midwife. I'm really sorry about your mum. That must be so hard. Especially in light on having a baby.
If you would like to talk more, PM and we can discuss more smile
