"you forget the pain" is a freaking liar!

I hate when people tell me this. Gonna punch the next person who does :P
Maybe its true because my son was super high and I pushed for like 3 1/2 hours.....

Yep. 11 days overdue by my due date. Once she arrived, based off how dry she was they guessed she was another week or more over. So my dates were all fcked up.

OMG! Back in the day my Grandmother carried my Uncle for what they think was a month over due! I would have died. lol

My first was kinda low because he did drop a couple weeks before labor but I pushed for almost 2 1/2 hours with him. With my second I NEVER dropped with him, he was super high the entire time and it was only like 15 minutes if that of pushing. I'm on my 3rd right now and like my last time around I'm not at all worried about the pain or anything. I think it all just comes down to the person and the baby and how the labor is going to go. If you're relaxed, focused and doing things how you want to and feel is right then the labor I think should go smoother. The first time around I was pushing when they told me to and the second time I was ignoring them, I was pushing when and how I felt like pushing and so on and it was much smoother and easier. Especially since it wasn't my first time and I knew more of what I was doing.
