Im just wondering what everyone elses thoughts are on their upcoming births. I am absolutely terrified of going thru it again! They say that the 2nd one is always easier and faster but thats actually what scares me! My first one I had a placental abruption and no one believed me that I was in as much pain as I was.. which let me tell you its like a hot knife across your stomach! I finally convinced them to admit me (took alot of tears and whining tho!) and a few hours later while I was sleeping in the bath tub (only place I got any relief) my water broke. It was 2:33 am by the time they got me out of the tub and across the room to the bed I was already 6 cm dilated! By the time the got a dr in about 10 minutes later I was fully dilated and ready to push (my then husband almost missed the birth completely cuz they didn't call him until 20 minutes into my labour!). They tried 2 vaccuums but neither worked. She finally came on her own with an episiotomy at 3:22 am. The thing that really scares me about this is the fact that they say labour and delivery is usually cut in half with each following child! So if I gave birth to my daughter in less then an hr... what the :censored: is going to happen with this one?!
