What I Wish I Had Known #4

>> Friday, January 27, 2012


No, really. I promise. It will.

With my first pregnancy, I was pretty much clueless. Sure, I was nervous and had tinges of fear every now and again, but I think I was mostly just numb.

My second time around, it seemed like I had so much to worry about.

The baby kept flipping and wouldn't stay head down. Whhhy wouldn't she stay in position?
I wasn't planning to have an epidural. Whhhhy did I think I could do this??
I already had a child that someone needed to take care of, but I had no family around, and the baby was due right before Christmas so people had plans/were busy doing holiday things/I was just having a hard time finding someone. Whhhhy couldn't I find someone???
I was going past my due date. Whhhhy wouldn't this baby just come already????

And the list of things that I was worried/stressed/absolutely freaking out about went on and on. There is a saying "Everything works out in the end. If it's not working out, it's not the end." But I wasn't buying into it.

I really wish I had known, and truly believed, that it would all work out. Because it did. Every single last detail worked out and in the end I had a beautiful baby girl in my arms. I had nothing at all to worry about. (Although, when it came down to the end, and my water broke, and I couldn't get a hold of my husband, or either of the babysitters, it was starting to kind of feel like it wouldn't.) But it did, it all worked out wonderfully, and it will for you, too.

I was just reciting this to myself last night. It will all work out like it is supposed to. I'm 28 weeks with baby #3, and while I'm not worried about the labor itsself, I'm quite worried about how our schedule will be thrown off when I do go into labor. My son is in kindergarten, and my daughter is in preschool, so I've been worried about how that will work if they are in school when I go into labor. (My last labor lasted 1 1/2 hours, so I'm preparing for another super fast labor.) We live 30 minutes from the nearest hospital, so that throws a kink in things as well. As I was up worrying last night, I just had to tell myself to stop freaking out about things I can't control, and that things will work out the way they are supposed to. As much as I love to have control and know how things are going to be, I'll just have to take things as they come and have faith that they are happening at the right time, and in the right way.
