I'm also pregnant. 10 weeks due on the 21 of may. I'm looking for any girls that can just talk about how they feel about being pregnant. I'm originally from califronia but two months ago I moved to florida with my baby's father o I dont know anyone and have no one my age to talk to about being pregnant. I'm planning on having my baby naturally, probably at a birth center, and i'm hoping for a water birth. Basically I just want someone to be nice and say hello. It would be nice to find some support too. So if anyone has anything to say it would be greatly appreciated.

Its the best way for your body to do what its suppose to do and work with gravity to give birth. Women have been giving birth actively for thousands of years. There are so man y other ways to cope with pain without putting drugs inyour body. If you do some reading youlll find that every med you put in your body effects your baby. Babies born with no drugs are uch more alert as are you so youre better able to interact with your child. So youre not all groggy, its really neat
Well like I said before I want a water birth plus I plan on looking into relaxation classes a few hours or more of pain is worth it to be sure and have a healthy child who doesntt have drugs pumped intp him or her at birth. As a mother its the least I can do. Give my child the best possible start to life.
Relaxation is the number one thing in giving natural birth. If you just relax everything during a contraction, it wil be less painful and go away faster. But there are all kinds of weird breathing techniques and stuff.
