Even though this is my 3rd child, I'm so nervous about being in the delivery room alone. All my friends & family live out of town (at least 12 hours away) and no one is coming until after the baby's born. I only have 4 weeks left, IF she decides to stay in that long! And I need to be able to focus on something other than being all alone. Anyone else been through this? What can I do to help me stay calm and enjoy the delivery instead of being so nervous about it??
The baby's dad isn't involved which honestly is better for me & the baby anyways! I just wanted support of some kind there with me, but I'm definitely not 1 of those girls who wants EVERYONE in the delivery room! I just had my other 2 kids dad in with me when they were born, so this is going to be a new experience. Thank u!
I just had my son 2 months ago, bd left when I got pregnant. I couldve had family in the room but I chose to deliver alone. Infact no.one came till the next day. It was GREAT. Wish I wouldve done it thatvway with my first. I had awesome bonding time with my son, it was less stressful and a very pleasent experience. I just got friendly with nurses, they were great and made me not feel alone. Like pp said just reach out to nurses.
Hey, Yeah, I went through that. With everything that's going on, you might forget that the dad is not there. When I was in labour, I didn't think too much about it. I brought a friend in with me, but really, I guess I didn't need anyone. Women are strong! You can do it!
Thanks everyone! You're making me feel a whole lot better about everything. The other 2 kids will be with their dad so im glad that's taken care of. One less thing I have to worry about! The day is just fast approaching and I just want to get a different perspective on things. Thanks for giving me that!
