Labor sucks. I don't care if you're medicated or unmedicated, it sucks. It's painful whether you're using drugs or not, and the pain continues long after your baby has entered the world. I've had three labors, all incredibly different, so I can guarantee there are things you will definitely do during labor. Yes, not every woman's labor and delivery process is the same, so when I say "definitely" I don't mean "absolutely, positively, without a shadow of a doubt." However, if what you experience during childbirth is even remotely similar to my own, I can safely say I got you covered.
My first pregnancy ended early, at 22 weeks, and was an unmedicated vaginal birth. My second pregnancy was induced, so I was begging for that blessed epidural before too long, and ended up having a c-section. With my third pregnancy, I fully intended to soldier through and experience the entire labor and delivery process completely unmedicated, but you know what they say about birth plans, right? I changed my mind and asked for an epidural when I hit transition. However, the epidural didn't work. So, while I was able to feel everything, I was not allowed to move because I had a needle in my spine.
Since all of my labor and delivery experiences vary so greatly, I think it's pretty safe to say I know a thing or two about labor. In fact, I think I've earned the right to say as much, so there.
