|i'm actually having dinner with a friend who had her son at the same hospital i'm going to! She had an epidural so i'll get the scoop from her i'm sure.
I'm 21 weeks today.
We're not finding out the sex.
|were the births of your baby's similar to what your mom experienced? If my mom had quick deliveries does it mean that will too?|
|did your doctor try to talk you out of using pain med's or did he refuse to give you any? Can they even do that?
Wow, I couldn't imagine 46 hours of labor.
My mom is positive that I will have my baby fast like she did, but i'm learning about everything that can happen just to be prepared. I hope she's right tho!!
|my due date is in 15 days, and i've been struggling with the "epi or no epi" question for a couple of months now. I think i'm going to try to manage as long as possible without one. They say that if you imagine each contraction as a wave that brings you closer to shore, it's easier to get through them. Focus on one at a time instead of anticipating the pain of the next one. Stuff like that. Then again, I have an extremely low pain tolerance, so we'll see how long that "wave" stuff works for me. ;)|
