So i know from experience, after two births, whatever you are expecting to happen, just doesnt happen!... My two births were very different from eachother, so I know this one will be as well.
first one I was in labor for 56 hours. I was induced, and it just went so slow.
second was about 30-40 hours, and was very slow, again induced..had the fully bulb.. is that what its called? haha.. and all that stuff.. that one was way more painful however.
i had epidurals w/ both.. the first one just dragged on, but once i had the epidural and pushed, i dont remember serious pain, just hard core pressure
with my second, after the epi, i had HORRIBLE pains. It was the most pain i had ever felt in my life. They said they gave me the max amount, and they it was the amount they give to those who get C sections. WOW! I could even feel when they did the "test" and pricked you w/ something sharp on the belly, or your side. After it all was over, they told me some kind of nerve just didnt respond, and something was blocking the medicine and what not.. so i felt the pain in certain spots, and for me it just happened to be where all the contractions were and my lower area...
now, with this birth, i refuse to be induced, unless i seriously seriously have to.. and i am afraid if i get the epi that it wont work again......................... what if i had to get a c section.. would i seriously have had to feel them cut me open? Surely not, but what would they do in that rare case?
my back is STILL in pains from my labor... im super nervous

If I were going through my first pregnancy right now this post would scare the life out of me...I hope all goes well for you. I had an emergency c-section with my first but they put me completely under. I don't remember much. GL to you
