Was birth anything like you thought it would be?

I didn't really know what to think of birth before I had my oldest. I had a vague idea that it would hurt and that a baby would be the end result. I didn't know what to really expect too.

Honestly, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I had an uncomplicated birth, the only time I had a rough time was during transition. I vomited and got the shakes really badly. But that lasted maybe 30 minutes.

    I agree, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I thought it'd hurt a lot more and I thought a million things would go wrong haha. Nothing went wrong and it was a total piece of cake for me. Although, the afterwords was worse than I thought. I didn't think I'd be bleeding THAT much for THAT long haha. Overall it was easy and nice. :)
