^^yeah i remember them tellin me there was a risk and all that...but that pain will beat you down until you wonder how women could ever go without pain killers. i might have over reacted...if i get a paper cut i fell like i've been shot. i dont do pain very well.

but honestly i had a real easy pregnancy, both times. both times i caught the flu and just slept all day but even that wasnt bad. the worst part of it all (for me) was learning to eat all day. it might be different for each woman but i had to eat every 30mins, cause if i didnt i felt lightheaded and im use to eating maybe once or twice a day. sometimes i even through up. i wrote about it on bhm on my first pregnancy, cause i actually fainted...but once i got into the swing of things. it was easy (LOL). i had no symptoms really.

so to everyone who wants a surrogate you're really gonna be missing out on one of the most beautiful things ever. this thread sounds scary but its not that bad...and who knows, you might coast right on through it like...wow thats it? i said that after baby one.

Natural birth with a midwife.......The birthing process is all wrong........If women actually understood the medicines they are giving they would refuse them.......

less liability for them if something goes wrong.
yup and use scare tactics to force you into a c-section. Telling you that the baby is in distress and that they baby is having heart dysrhythmias. And the your decelerating. All this stuff that would make a mother freak out. Im having my baby at a jewish hospital because they prefer natural birth to c-sections. 

Alladis is the truth.  I went in on a Monday morning for a ultrasound and by noon, they'd told me that they were keeping me and inducing labor because they felt my amniotic fluid was too low.  I was 38 weeks, 5 days prego

To initiate dilation, they placed some type of apparatus (cervidil) up close to my cervix.  After a full day, no dilation.

Day two, Cervidil and Pitocin was started. Contractions throughout the night every 5 minutes, but no dilation.

Day Three: Dilated only 2 cm.  They used the scare tactic that it was best to get the baby out of there, my amniotic fluid was low and therefore, they broke my water. Contractions got worst. 1 hour later, the same 2cm. They used the scare tactic that now my baby's heartrate was slowing down and I had to have an urgent c-section.  I bout lost my damn mind and tried to get off the table when they put the oxygen on my face.

So yeah, I don't think my fluid was low. About two days prior, he had shifted which made walking really painful.  I think that because he was moving downward, they just wasn't measuring right.  I wish I would have had him full term and my body given a chance to go into labor when ready.  He is my first and usually with the first child, sometimes labor don't occur until after the due date.  My body wasn't ready to have him and I feel I was forced into an induction and had no other option but have a c-section when I wouldn't dilate.  The next time around, I want a VBAC.  I feel that there should be enough space in between the birth of my son and the birth of my next child (whenever that will be) to lower the risk of uterine rupture.

You ladies are amazing. Bringing a child into this world is a selfless act and many people take it for granted or take it and motherhood too lightly. Thank god for mothers like you all! 👍

Sometimes I think I would do it natural then I'm reminded of how bad my cramps are.

Had a C-section, however I can't see any reason I would want to feel a body squeezed out of my vagina....so epidural if we have another.
