Im scared too Lol and im on my second pregnancy (36 weeks) my first daughter i had her all natural no pain medicine.im not going to lie it was really painful but so worth it after i saw her.And i hear getting the epidural will give you back problems in the future.ii plan on going all natural with this baby too.I just wanna try different techniques this time..Like maybe while im having my contractions just be in warm water.Then when the baby is about to be born just have her in the hospital bed.

If you scared of the pain you can ask for epidural but true what the above said it will give you back pain after you get pregnant again cause I had it  with my first baby last year and now I'm dealing with a lot of back pain idk if is the epidural thou but you won't feel any pain while you in labor getting the epidural this time I'm trying to go all natural not sure though lol I know I'm gonna need that epidural.

I was in labour for over 39 hours with a back to back baby which was extremely painful nearly resulted in losing my baby twice due too complications, although I did have an epidural and it was a life saver after being in pain for so long and I've had no back pain from having it either xx

With my first i was medically induced and had iv meds it was aweful and lasted 7 1/2 hours. So with my last child i decided on natural. I did everything i could to prepare my body. I walked everyday, used a birthing ball (exercise ball 10$ at walmart), drank raspberry leaf tea, took epo starting at 35 weeks, then i self induced at 38 weeks went into labor a few hours later again it lasted 7 1/2 hours but the pain i could handle due to the fact that i had my mind set on natural the last 3o minutes were the worst but it was awesome and beautiful and ill be doing it again this time.
