I have two boys, and had really good experiences. But they weren't exactly the experiences that I had hoped for, but we cant get everything we want! My boys were healthy when they were born, and both got a 9 apgar rating, so I am pleased with that. The only problems we had were that both my boys were hypoglycemic, so they had to get formula right away, and my first was jaundice.
I had planned to have a natural birth both times, but ended up getting an epidural, and they did give me pitocin both times. But I was lucky enough to have vaginal births, and have been lucky enough to breastfeed successfully.
If I get pregnant again, and that is a very big IF, i have been considering going a different route, and doing it completely natural, possibly even at home (not too sure about that).
I would love to hear some other experiences about how your little one(s) were born, and any problems you might have had, and if your birth plan was followed, or if you even had one... And if you got to breastfeed, or didn't want to!
All stories are appreciated!!! Thanks!!!
