Re: If you had no pain meds and tore
I'm glad I'm not the only one. However, I see this is your first. The fear makes total sense for you. First labors are a bit scary because of the unknown. It's totally normal. (You can totally do it BTW!!!) This is my 4th labor and 6th baby. I feel silly that I'm so nervous over it.
