Third hypno-pregnancy, having physical birthing memories resurface during sessions?

0
First child I took a Hypnobabies class. Second child, I reread the book, had my husband read scripts, but mostly just kept on the maintenance schedule. Both great births. Third time I am using Hypnobabies in a similar manner to the second but a troubling thing happens:
If I'm doing a session that visualizes parts of giving birth, I start having pressure waves and sensations remembered from previous births (nothing powerful enough to start a birthing time, but still concerning). It's Hypnotic Childbirth 1 and 2, Visualizing Your Birth, and Painless Childbirth that are the main culprits.
Since I'm very tired, pregnant and chasing toddlers, these flashbacks are making it difficult for me to look forward to birthing this current child. Not that either of the previous births was bad, just the thought of that much work is daunting right now. Fear clearing isn’t helping. I'll do a session, feel good about things, and when I start a Hypnotic Childbirth I’m back where I started. Thoughts?

    Hi Jen,
    Congrats on this pregnancy!

    Just wondering about clarifying that you have done all of your practice in the order that the program is supposed to be done in. Even with multiple hypno-births, it is important to review the *entire* program from start to finish rather than just listening to some of the CDs/tracks. This will ensure that your tools are in place for *this* birth.

    "If I'm doing a session that visualizes parts of giving birth, I start having pressure waves and sensations remembered from previous births (nothing powerful enough to start a birthing time, but still concerning)."
    - How exactly is it concerning for you? Are there feelings that are coming up or are there other concerns around the fact that waves are happening at all, the sensations being remembered, etc - ?

    "Since I'm very tired, pregnant and chasing toddlers, these flashbacks are making it difficult for me to look forward to birthing this current child. Not that either of the previous births was bad, just the thought of that much work is daunting right now."
    - Would it be possible to ask for more help or reach out to family/friends to help support you more so that you can look forward to this baby's birth?
