I’m reading a blog about humanized labour (as in birth, not work) and guess what? I’m terribly missing all my labour experience. Really missing, wishing I could go back in time and be at the end of my pregnancy again and go through the whole process and maybe see if I would have done anything differently.
Not sure if I told here before, but as soon as Laura was born and I saw her healthy and safe, I wanted to go through everything again. I loved being pregnant and I loved giving birth.
I can’t believe how much I’m missing it now… maybe it’s because I know some few women about to have babies, like Eriquinha, who is going to be a mum for the 2nd time anytime soon, Mari whose first baby, Vicky, is coming in November, Carla, who is having her baby boy in December…
My head says I need to wait at least two years after getting pregnant again – firstly because my body needs to recover (I swear that I can still feel my hips opened!) from the whole experience, secondly because I want to enjoy my baby Laura and see her growing and learning to turn, to crawl, to walk, to talk, etc. and thirdly because being a mum is the best experience ever, but, geez, it’s hard work.
