    I know the judgements hurts and that you don’t need reassurance that you’re doing the right thing. You are a well researched and thoughtful person and their judgments are being projected onto you by their fears and insecurities. I am not a mommy but have experienced the “M” word. Rock it out. You are a great mommy.

    I had to reply to this particular blog. You know I do understand, as we have the same problem. It’s funny how even the closest people in ur family sometimes they just don’t understand. In my case, my own father could not understand why I could not do a normal vaginal birth. How funny how he would tell me that in the old times women would give birth vaginal all the time! And I had to remind him, that there were still always the unfortunate mother and child back I that time, that for one reason or another, the birth would “complicate” and mother or child would pass away, or even both!! We are lucky to live in today’s age, and something like a scar tissue problem will be solved with a c-section and mother and child will be fine. Can u imagine if we didn’t have that option? I would be terrify of being pregnant! For my child an for myself. It is very unfortunate what happened to your friend. Very sad that I dont know her and I have tears in eyes just to imagine it. But you choose life! For your child and for you! And no one can possibly talk crap about that! I can’t wait to see “thing 2’s” pictures 😉 sooo excited for you!!!
