Only 14 days left!!!! I'm super excited yet very nervous!!! I'm so ready to meet my little man. The thing that scares me the most is that I'm doing this all natural. I told my boyfriend,who hates to see me im pain, not to let them give me anything no matter how much I cry, scream, or beg.

I had a med-free birth. It's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be! it's like taking a bunch of laxatives (That crampy feeling) It's not some new, scary pain, probably just like something you've felt before, just more intense.

I'm not gonna lie, it sucks ass. But it's bearable and you'll make it through. I did it with my first and plan on doing it with this one. I'm more terrified of the problems people have with the epidural and all that. You'll be okay, promise :)

I have done 3 natural, not going to lie, it hurts, not the contractions so much as the actually crowning part, BUT that part is the quickest part usually and the feeling after is one of just immense relieft. Dont worry, you got this :D
