  • I thought the labor was amazing, I enjoyed the labor just as much, if not more than the pregnancy itself. I had an epi - even though it was only for about an 1.5 but it was the best and most rewarding pain I've ever felt in my life and I mean lol believe me its the worst pain I've ever felt but would do it again without question. The labor was absolutely amazing and I can't wait to experience again.

  • LOL! When I had my son almost 7 yrs ago I looked forward to it too, but couldn't handle so I ended up with an epidural. I am due with my 2nd child in January and strangely enough I am looking forward to it too! Even though I know i probably won't be able to handle it yet again. Goodluck!

  • I don't think you're crazy :) with all my pregnancies, the thought of labor was exciting...not for the pain, but more or less that it means baby is coming out! :)

  • i don't think you're crazy, it's those pains that make it real and make you realize that you are going to hold your baby in your arms very soon. I ended up having to get a c-section b/c my labor wasn't progressing and I felt like i got jipped! I wanted to experience giving birth and everything that went with it, even the pain! good luck mama!

  • I felt alot like that when i waz really close to having my daughter. it actually helps alot when you really are in labor so be thankful for it!! i think it has alot to do with being exited also. i was so exited about getting to see and hold my baby that the pain really was more of an exitement and adreniline. Good Luck!
