Everyone's different. Just remember to try and relax and make the most of it. Everyone says I'm crazy when I said I enjoyed child birth. But my saying is, the baby has to come out whether you like it or not! Lol may as well make it as positive an experience as you can.

Once your actually in the situation it won't seem as scary. Don't worry about, you'll do great :)

It depends on if you have an epidural or not. Everyones different. My daughter took 19 hours but with an epidural you don't feel anything but pressure when you push. I'm not gunna lie it hurts. But its not as bad with an epidural. Its totally worth it once you get to hold your baby :) you shouldn't watch those videos theyll just freak you out. You won't know how it will be for you till you have him/her.

I'm the biggest wuss ever so I was freaked out too. I had seen A Baby Story on TLC where they showed the needle and everything for the epidural and I do not like needles. Honestly the worst parts for me were the IV cause the nurse did a horrible job and when they took all the tape off from the epidural. Actually giving birth was a breeze for me. Of course then you have to get up at some point and that's not much fun but by then you have your LO to make it all worth it :)

It will be ok. You will be pushing harder than you ever had & it will be painful but you know what? Once that little person is put in to your arms you will forget about all that. Please don't frighten yourself by listening to delivery room horrors or watching them on tv. Take it from this mom,it's not as horrible as all that I promise!
