Crazy. Nothing at all like I imagined it would be. Exciting. Fun. Both the happiest and scariest moment of my life.

 It went so well...I focused on breathing and not the pain.  You will do so good...Congratulations.   Are you expecting a boy or girl?

I pretty much felt every single emotion possible in the first week o my daughters life. It was a roller coaster but looking back now, I Appreciate every moment of it. Congratulations on your new bundle! Remember this one thing...don't turn down offered help! Let your friends and family help you if at all possible. Even if it's brief (so you can catch up on a little rest every once in awhile) My mother was my life saver.

It went so much more smoothly than I had expected. I actually went into labor and didn't even know it because the contractions weren't painful, they were just uncomfortable. I got up to pee and my water broke. My labor was long, but it wasn't at all as bad as I thought it would be.

i was nothing like I had expected.  push like you gotta poop and don't be embarrassed, it makes it harder to get the baby out :)  I learned that the first time and the second and third went faster and more easily.

Anything that a woman goes thru to have a child (its different for everyone some women have a mild time and others worse) but either way I promise you that it is absolutely WORTH It and I felt the most intense overwhelming beyond description amount of love beyond my wildest imagination. 

Congrats and good luck
