  • Everybody told me that contractions would feel like menstral cramps on speed and you know what I've had worse cramps form that time of the month. But at least with my cycle I can be the one to say when I want medication and not the doctor.

  • someone told me that when her sister had a baby, she RIPPED while the baby came out, i mean the baby's head ripped the lining of her "area" down there and she had to be stitched up. so i'm thinking it was gonna hurt like i'm in hell on FIRE! but the doctor knew he has to numb it all and even though i think i did rip a little, i couldnt tell.

    I also never had a long delivery and someone once told me that she screamed so LOUD that the person in the another room had to ask if she was ok but no screaming here:)

    so nope it wasnt as bad as i had thought it would be with all the stories i was told
