Having my first one (he is now 3) without pain meds was an accident. I waited to long to go to the hospital. Find out what your hospitals policies are on when they won't give you pain meds. After the 1st one, I decided that I wasn't going to use pain meds with my 2nd. I had her (now 2) at a birthing center with a Midwife. Best choice for me. I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my 3rd and last child and I will be doing the same thing, birth center, Midwife. Your mind is your worst enemy. Don't be afraid, this is what your body is made to do. The pain, well, yes it's bad, for me it was at least. But it's pain with a purpose. I suggest maybe joining a group like the one I found, about natural births and breastfeeding.

Noone can tell you what YOUR pain will be. Every woman is different and every pain is different. Do some research and talk to other moms who have not had pain meds and see if thats what you want to do. You are off to a good start already, believing that you can probaly handle the pain. Change it to "I can do this". Put some "uummphh" into it when you think it. Say it out loud. Sounds crazy but that works for me, hopefully it will work for you.
