Congrats Your getting there! Good luck!
Yay to us! I've been in the hospital since about 3pm central time, I'm 2 days away from my due date and am gonna have my pitocin started soon! This is my second baby and I had an epidural with him only bc I didn't wanna feel the tearing down there, not because of the contractions...they were going off the chart and never did bother me
With my second delivery i got gas to help me breathe through the contractions (my husband wasn't much help and my mom wasnt there) i was in hard labour from 8:37 and i started pushing at 9:40 and had my son 9:44pm.
I have my labour storied in my journal if you'd like you can go read
Staying upright and active helps. Do figuer 8's with you'r hips and use heatpacks to ese pain
That's exciting! Name him Romeo haha! Anyways one way to cope with it is by waiting to have it done & then just tell yourself I'll ask for it if I appsolutly need it & by then it will be to late to get it!stay relaxed for sure if you stress & are tense its a lot more painful & long! Your so lucky your going in early! My due date is in 4 days still no baby
