Thankfully I have very fast labors. My son, I had no contractions. My water just broke and then the contractions came. I had him 2 hours and 15 minutes after my water broke. With my daughter, my midwife broke my water, no other interventions, and I had her in an hour and 50 minutes. Believe me, I count myself lucky. The nurses would tease me saying I should be a baby maker as easily as I have them. Sorry, we can't afford more then 2 kids. Lol

You can do it. Just keep saying you will and stay positive. With my second I stayed home as long as I could. Got the hospital calm and happy. 8cm. The nurses were freaking out.

My mom just keeps telling me to not eliminate any options.
A girl at work who's never had children told me that I wouldn't be able to do it. So my new motivation is to prove her wrong ;)

I'm also planning on laboring at home for as long as possible.
Nothing more discouraging than laboring, going to the hospital and being sent home. I don't even want to experience it.

I keep telling myself, if people like Kailyn, Snooki and Kim Kardashian can give birth, so can I.

Y'all are brave! I'm sure you can! I would NEVER. Lol. I have no desire to. I probably could as I had zero pain in 18 hours of labor with my son (didn't have the epidural til 8-10 hours later) but I was already scared and didn't want pain too! The doctors pushed me to have my epi even tho I had no pain because I started dilating pretty quickly at that point and they thought I was gonna fly to 10 and it would be too late for me to get it. But I did not fly to 10, I flew to 5 and stopped dilating and had a csection.

Haha, I said throughout my entire pregnancy "I want to go all natural! No meds!". My mother always told me to keep my options open as well but I was set in my mind.

Then the contractions started & I could NOT handle them whatsoever. I was the one bawling scaring all the other women in labor at the hospital lol. It was just the contractions that hurt. They tapered off my epi so I could push & I felt everything. Cue more screaming.

With all that being said, whenever I have my next I'm going to try my hardest to manage my pain & go all through it naturally. Though if I'm feeling it how I did before I will ask for my epi as needed lol.
