ok, so, i want pretty badly to give birth with no medication. my doctor and nurse think i am insane but i want to do it to prove to myself that i am not a weakling. it is kind of part of my reputation.
but i am NOT hard-headed enough to go for a long period of time in agonizing pain. i think i could do 8 hours. i have been walking miles every day, using a birthing ball instead of sitting in chairs, doing yoga, and stretches. is there anything else someone would reccomend that MIGHT make labor easier so that i might have a chance to do this?
if i can't do this then it is like i am conceeding to my parents and peers that i am not ready for this- and i AM. i completely understand that nothing happens as planned when it comes to labor and birth (both my husband and i are shining examples) but i rather try and fail than not try at all!!
