I am pregnant and due on Feb 23rd. For my first pregnancy I was planning to do a natural birth, but things didn't turn out the way that I wanted to and I was talked into by the nurses to get the epidural. This time I am really wanting to do a natural birth, but I kinda want to know how it really is. Is it really that painful? And is the most painful part the pushing or the contractions? And what does it feel like?? Also was there anything that seem to help with the pain?
I really would like to know if you can. Everyone that I've asked just told me it hurts really bad and told me to just the the epidural.
