The one thing I always say is don't expect everything to go the way you plan! I was in labor for 26 hours with my son! I had hardly slept in 2 days and went into labor at 3:30 in the morning on June 13th, 2010. My contractions were regular and strong, then I got my epidural...Didn't need it yet but the doc said " if you're gonna get it I would just get it done with since you are at a 4 and can get it now " so I did and it almost completely stopped my contractions!! They had to give me pitocin to get them back to normal, it took FOREVER before it was time to push! First the doc checked me, said I was ready, then I had 2 nurses helping me for 4 HOURS trying to get him out! They kept telling me "he's right there, he's coming, keep going" And at the end of the 4th hour the doc came back in, checks me, and says " he hasn't moved!" I was soooo mad! My son didn't turn all the way and was getting stuck in my pelvic bone! The doc said I could keep trying but he was sure he wouldn't come out that way and said c-section was the best route for me. It was scary but I was exhausted and just wanted him out! So I got to experience both sides of it! At 5:20 on June 14th, 2010 my beautiful Joseph was born :) And even though it was hard. It was just 1 day of new/scary/pain/emotions to get something so wonderful for the rest of my life! I am 29 weeks with my little girl now and am having a scheduled c-section :) I hope everything goes well for you and your baby! The day is so exciting and scary but it's SOOO worth every moment you get with your child afterwards :)

dont worry about it as if it was that bad no1 would have more than 1 child. im on number 4. 1 will say every1 is diffrent iv been very lucky number 1 was 3hours 20 mins no pain relef (for any of them) number 2) 59 mins from star to finish not as nice as it sounds and number 3) 3hours so i know i was very lucky they seem to almost fall out of me. i almost enjoyed it and love telling people this as they are very green with envy lol. i was told you will know when u go into laubour as ur waters go, well not for me the waters went and with in 1 min i was handed a baby, and number 3 didnt stop and turn as she should have she just fell out in 1 go, and number1 stopped and had a look around i could feel her head moving it was very odd and i didnt like it. so all i can say is iv got 3 all very diffrent yet rather the same
