  • I was SO terrified! But yuo want the truth? It's really not that bad. Labor progressed faster than I could keep up and I honestly thought I just couldn't do it. But the nurses were amazign and I ended up with a c-section anyways. I think it is so scary going in because yuo cant conceive what you will have in your arms at the end. When they pulled my son from my womb and I heard him cry I realized I had just had a BABY. A living being and my memory of the blood sweat and tears started to fade into a memory of a beautiful little boy looking up at me. Its so wonderful. Dont be scared. Dont believe the horror stories, you wont remember how awful it was once you have that little baby in your arms.
