Need a little venting/support.
I am 24wks today with my first baby. Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to have a natural drug free delivery when I had kids. Now that I am pregnant and looking at all my options I feel even more strongly about this...I would even like to have a waterbirth but that is not an option at the hospital where I will be delivering. But whenever I mention this to people I get the rolling of eyes and the oh yeah right you just wait..you'll be begging for drugs! or you're not going to be able to do it. Why can't people be supportive?!?! I mean seriously women have been giving birth since the begining of time and never took pain killers. I just found out a couple days ago that even my husband doesn't think I'll be able to do it. I would have thought that of all people he should be the most supportive!! But he's right there with the rest of everyone! Teling me I won't be able to do it. It's sooo frustrating!!! I just want to cry about it all the time. I'm not being ignorant and thinking that it's not going to hurt or that it's going to be easy. No, I know it's going to be very painful and it's not going to be easy, but it's something I really want to do! Why can't people just support me in my desire to experience childbirth without drug intervention!!!
Does anyone else feel the same way or have gotten the same reaction from people!??!
