Congrats on your pregnancy! Is it going ok so far?
I'm currently 24 on my 3rd child (this one is a surprise)
I was 20 when I had my first it was scary/exciting time! I would say look into pain relief methods for labour but don't worry about the birth plan too much as I was quite dissapointed when mw pressed me to do one and it totally went out he window! Lol I didn't want any drugs and ended up having all of them! Lol so know what's available and take it from their!
Also breastfeeding again I was adamant I would bf but when it came down to it I couldn't lasted 2 weeks before I went insane and was told to stop! (he did feed every 20minutez) also with my second I tried and couldn't manage it the lathing just never seemed to happen! This time round imgonna try but have bought these new starter formula pack incase it doesn't work again!
Basically don't put too much pressure on yourself, there is alot out there to do the perfect mummy things but just do why your body tells you! Pack plants of snacks
Ooo I found cooling spray amazing as you do get hot! Ad I k ow it sounds funny but one my things was web my first was here he kept scratching himself and the mittens wouldn't stay in! Soo The baby grows with built in mittens were good but socks seemed to be the best thing (that is what a mw did or me and he was in the scbu) lol
Good luck in sure it will all be lovely!
