Are you more or less anxious about labor this time around?
This will be my third baby and I think I'm more anxious! With my first son, my water broke but I needed to have Pitocin after no dilation happened a day later. I had the epidural and everything was wonderful after that. I assumed it would be the same with my second and wasnt bervous at all, but it was not. I got to 6 cm within about 2 hours of arriving at the hospital, then they broke my water and I got the epidural. It didn't take and it only numbed a small area on my thigh. They were about to fix it but I went from 610 cms in 15 mins and it was too late as the baby started crowning. I pushed and he was out in 2 pushes. While that was all wonderful and fast, I wasn't prepared for that pain! I really thought I was going to die. I know I could do it again but I really really don't want to! I'm so scared its going to be even faster this time. Call me a baby, but I WANT that epidural. I am also scared of a csection!
What do you ladies think? Are you more prepared and less anxious this time around? Thanks for sharing!
