Currently, I have a little stack of books next to the couch that I've been meaning to read - on breastfeeding, childbirth, and vaccines. (Okay, so my "little stack" is really just 3 books!) But I'm thinking these 3 subjects are a good start. I started off reading the one on childbirth...husband-coached childbirth (AKA the Bradley Method) to be specific.
As much as I would LOVE a natural childbirth, I can't help but feel like I shouldn't get my hopes up. This pregnancy has been quite the roller coaster ride, and it's not over yet! Basically, I never know what to expect when I see the doctor, so I feel like I won't know what to expect when it's time for labor.
Despite all of that, I still plan on reading and preparing for a natural childbirth. But if for some reason that doesn't happen, I want to be okay with that. Because really, my #1 goal is to bring home a healthy little baby boy. That's the most important thing!
