Tell me about your natural delievery!

 I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant with baby #2. With DS I was induced for going over my due date. With this baby though I am determined to go all natural but I'm scared out of my mind!  So let me hear your birth stories to give me courage. Maybe if I start building myself up now I wont be scared when the big day finally comes!

I'm due may 28th. You should join the may due date group. There are a lot of them due with #3 or more.

Quoting MyIslandGirls:

I'm 12 weeks too!!! with #4 though..... when are you due?

My last 3 were all spontanious deliveries... #1 and 3 were non medicated.. #2 i had 2 puffs of that gas stuff then told the nurse off and threw it at her.. and pushed my baby out.

#1 was 3 hours long.. #3 was 1 hour and 18 minutes long.. i had no time to do anything but PUSH with him.. lol

Thanks ladies! I know I want this birth to go completely different than my first. I have a sil coming who is a massage therapist so maybe that will help. Unfortunately a water birth is out for me since the hospital here doesn't have tubs.

I'm due May 25th.

I'm pretty natrually minded when it comes to birth.. I'm afraid I wouldn't fit in a due date group well.

I was 8 days past my due date. I went in for the standard NST to make sure I got the go ahead to stay pregnant but told the midwife I was pretty sure I was feeling contractions. This was a big deal b/c I hadn't felt any until then and in my family we tend to not feel contractions until the big day. My midwife checked me and I was 4-5cm dilated. She told me that there was a good chance I'd be going to the birth center that night!

We went home and I ate some panda express and did some things around the house to pass the time. All day long contractions were so uncomfortable that I didn't want to sit but not all that painful. We went to burger king that night and I got some pie...my last meal lol.

My bf then went to bed because he was supposed to work at 6am. I tried to lay down but kept getting up and pacing. I sat on the exercise ball a little and just walked and walked. My contractions were 2 min apart by 10pm but something told mne to not go in yet. They spread out to about 3 min apart so I kept pacing.
Finally at 1am they were 2 min apart again and I called. They said come on in so I woke my bf. I was so nervous and excited!!

I was 6cm dilated when I got to the hospital. I paced the room constantly while they monitored me every so often with a portable Doppler. I got in the tub for maybe 30 min then paced some more. At 6 am I started doubting myself so I knew I was getting close. Lol. My water broke all over the floor at 6:20. I was so exhausted that I finally got in bed about 6:40 and was pushing by around 7:15. My beautiful baby was born at 7:48am

I didn't tear and now (almost 10 months later) I barely remember the pain. I can't wait for my next natural birth. It was so empowering!

Contractions started at 2 am I finally couldn't sleep between them any more at 5:30 am they were about 7 min apart, by 7 am they were about 3.5 min apart. By 8 am they were about 2 min apart so my dh and I finally decided to go to the hospital lol. By 8:30 I was in the gown and dialated to a 5. 15 min later I was at an 8 and my water broke, ten min later I was at a 10. 9:44 am he was here! I tore like crazy and if it hadn't been for that I could have just went right back to normal the next day lol everything heals and this is what your body is built to do!! You can do it! Do yourself a favor and wait until the last minute to go to the hospital if youre doing a hospital birth so you cant get an epidheral even if you want to! Lol total labor time 7 hrs 44 mins time at hospital 1 hr 34 min :) you can do it! I brought a picture of my mom, grandma and great grandma with me and the labor nurse was like 'whats the story here?' I said between the three of them they had 23 natural births I can sure as hell have one!
