Don't listen to all those stories people tell you. I had people telling me all these horror stories and how horrible child birth way and it got me all worked up and stressed. Truth is, they were not true, I had a good natural birth and brought a lovely baby girl into the world. I will say it did hurt, but it wasn't some immense pain. Let me tell it to you this way. When your in labor, it feel like you are having menstrual cramps that won't go away. It's more annoying than painful. Everyone take this in a different way. If you get to the point where you can't bear it, get some pain relief. It's all what you make of it. I wasn't feeling too good, but when I was in labor at the hospital, I was up walking around, laughing and joking with the staff and it made everything so much easier. So don't let people scare you with these horror stories, because it's not as bad as it sounds. :)

I was so nervous before I had my twins I didn't deliver naturally but the questions of will my bbs be ok, will I beable to breastfeed, I've never held a new born before, and omg omg its happening ima be a mom!! Well let me tell you take deep breathe it comes so natural! All my fears were gone as soon as I heard them cry!! Joy came at an overwhelming rate with pride :D breastfeeding is difficult but the nurses and my mom helped alot so did my husband. Don't let ppl give you horror stories either that's jus cruel! I'd always tell ppl to hold their stories and after I give birth we can share lol. Just try and stay calm and remember you get ur body back and a blessing. Its all amazing and beautiful. Surround yourself with positive people and you'll be fine.
