Birth.

Was it better or worse than you had anticipated?

I had 3 c sections so I have no idea what birth is even like. I've never even had a contraction!

    It was fine. No complications or anything.

    My first daughter was because she was 10.6 and 24 inches and my body never went into labour so at 42 weeks they gave me a c section and with the other 2 since I had c sections to start with we just went with that option.

    I healed up super fast with all 3.

    By the 3rd I was a champ at them. haha

      birth is a very painful experience! I was in labor for 16 hours. I got in and out of the tub three different times. I sat in the bathroom alot because i could brace my arms against the wall during a contraction. I yelled at nurses. i broke down and cried. i begged them to make it stop. but i couldnt be still long enough for them to give me an IV and i was far enough along that it wouldnt have helped my pain. I gave birth on a birthing stool. and i tore all the way to my butthole. My daughter was 9 lbs. Being stitched up sucks...It toook me a long time to heal because when i tore it wasnt "normal" but everything is all good now. it took a goo three months for me to heal.

          I was induced due to preeclampsia at 7:21 am and gave birth at 2:21 pm. For me, it wasn't a big deal at all. I was actually surprised at the end of it, because I have ZERO pain tolerance. I was able to sit and talk with my husband during the whole thing. She was 8lbs 3oz. I sometimes wonder if the only reason it wasn't so bad for me was because I worked myself up for it convincing myself in the months leading up that it would be the most painful experience of my life. I hope I'm lucky enough with this one that it isn't painful as well.
