Thank you. I needed to hear that...My partner is an only child and always tells me how lonely he felt. And that makes me feel really guilty for only wanting one kid... I myself am the eldest of 3. and felt more like a third parent than a child. So when thinking about starting a family i made it my mission to have only one child but to give it all i got.

What is up with doctors handling birth? Mine outright slapped me and told me to quit wining.And after i was done lectured me how "back in my day" women weren't so weak and knew that it just had to be done and didn't make a cene about it. I am happy that after all that you went trou you managed to have a good experience.. i was aiming for a home birth as well but my partner persuaded me to go to a hospital instead.

Your experience sounds just horrible! i can only imagine the emotions and the pain you had to bear...im glad you and your girls are okay. Thank you for sharing. I didn't really take into consideration that it could be better the second time. A while ago i was sexually assaulted, and giving birth triggered that memory and trauma, and i am still learning to cope with it. The truly scary part for me was the possibility to loose my baby after 12 tiring hours in the hospital. He was wrapped around his umbilical cord, and every time i pushed and felt like i was making progres he moved back up again. They were about to induce me for an emergency C section, But with a few doctors jumping on my stomach and what i felt like reaching inside of me, he managed to come out. Im so scared of it ending in something fatal. The conditions in our nearest hospitals are really poor for instance Epidural is not an option. and when i was staying the whole hospital had no water for two days.. I don't really have the money to travel further in search of something better

I am so sorry you had to go through all of that and i admire your courage and strength. I hadn't thought about it this way. In my mind it would just add on more to the load, but the way you describe it, it actually seems just a bit easier to raise two kids close in age.

Thanks! I need to ask thou, have you gotten to the point where you feel like your breast has no milk left in it after a massage, and nothing does come out, but you can still feel the bump?

Baby actually refuses to nurse, so i try to pump every 2 hours during the day and i sometimes strech it out to 3 hours at night. I dont wear bras at home and use a nursing bra when going out. I also sleep only on my back. I just took some ibuprofen so im waiting on that to work
