I have 9 days left till due date and I am scared having contractions and counting them at home. Id rather have my water break at home. I don't care about the pushing cause I am getting the epidural. Are you gonna do natural?
Contractions. Pushing was the best.
I'm a ftm so don't have the experience but from what I've seen and read on this app is the pushing aren't nearly as painful as the contractions. I'm terrified when I think about labor/birth Lol I'm due in July!
Pushing actually feels good lol it burns like he ll but it makes the contractions kinda pause. I did it four times with no epidural and i plan on doing the same this time around:-) good luck to you all!
I am definitely planning on an epidural ! 4 times with no epidural ! Oh dear baby Jesus that makes my vagina hurt just thinking about it
When urge to push starts then u dont feel that much pain.
i am a mother of 1 and i had normal delivery without epidural (though it was really hard to say NO to epidural while i was in pain) .
Any of you who has 2 or more children can tell me is it less painful after your first?
I only have one a005 but I have heard that once the first is out they just keep getting easier and less painful. But that's not experience just hear say
For me pushing was way worse! I'm terrified that this labor will be the same but I'm def getting an epidural this time!
Contractions are worse!! I've had 3 already with no Epidurals and don't plan on one this time either.
@a005- its not necessarily easier or less painful after the first it all depends on your baby. With my youngest son, it was more painful cuz he had the cord wrapped around his neck and kept turning which made the contractions much worse than they actually should have been. they were measuring a 3 on the monitor but felt like a 10...
contractions til i got an epidural. the pushing was just uncomfortable.
