  • congratulations on the baby I just had a baby too a week ago

    I dont know if its normal but there are many women who dont feel those awful period cramp like contractions
    I on the other hand felt every contraction possible and was in labor for 14 hours so u should feel lucky... :)

  • You are so damn lucky! :) I think women that don't experience the painful contraction are few and far in between.

  • My aunt had been having some pressure in her tummy but not tons. She went to the doc and he checked her and told her to go straight to the hospital. She said she would come back in a little while she was doing laundry and he told her no she was already 8cm dialated. Me not so lucky but I have been and will be induced with all my kids. Pitocin can be a bitch

  • That's why my DD was born at home! I was expecting earth-shattering contractions and it never got worse than bad period cramps. My water broke and I had no control over the pushing. Thank god my mom was there to catch DD! I didn't even experience "the ring of fire" that I was so worried about! DD was 8lbs 6oz and had a 14inch head. I tease DH and tell him that I should have babies for a living! :)

  • Congratulations!!!
    You are Very lucky!! I had natural childbirth and I felt pain from the first contraction in till she was born, then relief!!! 10 minutes after she was born I was up in the shower and walking around and not bed ridden like most are when they use medical interventions.. Natural is the way to go ladies!
