Are there any mommies on here that have gone or plan to have an all natural labor? I'm a first time mom and I'm planning to have an all natural med free labor and I'm getting nervous. What was it really like?
With my 2nd labor I had a natural labor. The contractions were worse then the actual labor in my opinion. Your contractions start of like period cramps but they get so intense its crazy but when it was time to push iin was so focused on pushing I think it helped with the pain of actual labor. Luckily I only had to push for 8mins and my baby came so I wasn't pushing extremely long.
i plan to go all natural, because my mom did it, sisters done it, sisters/inlaw done it, gramma, aunts well some only.. And what the heck, i could do it too. unless its an emergency c section if i dont go into labor by next week on friday.
Its not as bad what I did with my last one was go last minute to the hospital he was born within an hour that way you don't have enough time to get the epidural lol the only negative was that my body went into shock it couldn't stop shaking but after like 6 min I was fine I did my other 2 with epidural and might get epidural with this one since I have to be admitted early for antibiotics unless I can stand the pain which I hope I can my problem is not being able to move around in a hospital
I went natural with mine. I had to be induced a week overdue and was on pitocin. People will tell you pitocin will break you into wanting an epidural, but its totally doable. Pitocin is rough
though. It was the best decision I made in regards to labor and I'll do it again in a heartbeat :)
I tryed going natural but my body went to shock my emergency contact my mom had to decide if i could get epideral the contraction were so intense i couldn't breathe felt like i forgot how to breath i was in labor for 17 hours because of my body shaking n freezing up but my baby boy came healthy as can be maybe on my next baby ill try n do natural just need put my state of mind somewhere else to not go into shock
I want to try to go natural as well , but I don't put up with pain very well so who knows if that will be happening lol c'mon now a small tattoo I got on my wrist hurt SO BAD , I couldn't take it anymore now imagine labor ? Lol I'm pretty sure it's 100x worse.
Even my sister tells me " yeah I don't think you'll handle it knowing how you are " I'm like ugh , I will try my best. :|
