  • They should give a pitocin drip. The contractions feel like you have to the bathroom really really bad. It took me a long time to dilate, but each person is different. Deep breath, you will do great!

  • Do you know what the plan is? Prostaglandins or pitocin?

    Good to hear you have your husband. :-)
    I have some tips for birth and a lot of encouraging affirmations.

    You can stay strong if you want to~ birth is old, we women have been doing this forever. You will come out on the other side with your baby so stay calm and strong and breathe.

  • My mind and body can handle a labor of any kind.
    I will have a strong and healthy baby.

    I trust my body to know how to birth this child.

    I trust my instincts to know what I need in labor.

    I trust my instincts to do what is best for my baby.

    I am a strong and capable woman.

    Only I can give birth to this baby and I accept responsibility for that challenge.

    My body knows how to birth our baby. If women didn't know how, we would have died out centuries ago.

    Trust your instincts.

    It's our baby, my body, our birth, and not the caregivers.

  • My body is indeed beautifully and wonderfully made.

    It's good for me to take care of myself. I get to have a voice.

    I have to be truthful with myself.

    I'm not responsible for protecting my OB; I'm not responsible for my OB's feelings; I am responsible for me. My OB is going to be fine. I have no control over how my OB is going to feel.

    Listen to my body and heart.

    I deserve to have the birth I desire.

    I trust my body

    I trust my pain

    I trust my labour

    I trust in our baby

    I am a strong and capable woman.

    I am a powerful, loving and creative being.

    I am now willing to experience all my feelings.

    My pelvis releases and opens as have those of countless women before me.

    My body is beautiful, capable and strong.

    I accept myself completely here and now.

    I now feel inner peace and serenity.

  • Imagine a mother in you....

    I put all fear aside as I prepare for the birth of my baby.

    I am relaxed and happy that my baby is finally coming to me.

    I am focused on a smooth, easy birth.

    I trust my body to know what it is to do.

    My mind is relaxed; my body is relaxed.

    I feel confident; I feel safe; I feel secure.

    My muscles work in complete harmony to make birthing easier.

    I feel a natural anesthesia flowing through my body.

    I relax as we move quickly and easily through each stage of birth.

    My cervix opens outward and allows my baby to ease down.

  • I see my baby coming smoothly from my womb.

    My baby’s birth will be easy because I am so relaxed.

    I breathe correctly and eliminate tension.

    I feel my body gently sway with relaxation.

    I turn my birthing over to my baby and my body.

    I see my breath filling a magnificent balloon.

    I am prepared to meet whatever turn my birthing takes.

    My baby moves gently along in its journey.

    Each surge of my body brings my baby closer to me.

    I deepen my relaxation as I move further into labour.

    I am totally relaxed and at ease.

    My body remains still and limp.

    I meet each surge only with my breath; my body is at ease.

    I release my birthing over to my body and my baby.

    I bring myself into deeper relaxation.

    I slowly breathe up with each surge.

    I put all fear aside and welcome my baby wi
