  • How many cm are you? It will most likely get worse.

  • Congrats! I'm glad you're not feeling pain yet, but when those contractions reach level 10 you will not be a happy camper lol. Are you going to have any kind of pain management?

    I'm so excited for you! Keep us as posted as you can til the bundle of joy arrives!! =)

  • You'll get there....when you get closer the pain level shoots way up and the contractions are so close together by the time one ends the next is starting!

  • I was enduced and considering I didn't have any drugs with my daughter, it wasn't too bad. I only had to push about 3 times. The actual pain part was less then 20 minutes. Not bad considering a lot of women go through it for a lot longer.

  • I have had 3. 2 naturally, 1 with epidural. I had minimal pain - I was lucky. But after it all - I probably didn't need the epidural.  Good Luck mama!!

  • I slept through my whole labor. Thay woke me up and said " oh, it's time to push" Of course I had the epidural. They broke my water and about 3 seconds later I was screaming for it. I still think I would have died if I did it natural.
