I think the main thing that helps me is just being open... I'm say ill go as natural as I can but I'm open to an epidural if it becaomes too much. I think every labor is different and how can you know what it will be like..
My first was a very long... induction I made it 24 hours before I decided I was ready for an epidural... I just got to tired and they were too intense...
My second was a quick easy induction the difference was my first baby wasn't ready... not dilating no contractions ect. My second I was already dilated to a 4 having contractions every 5 minutes. Anyways it was a fast labor and I loved it so much more then my long one. My fast labor was hard because it got intense fast and I started getting scared but I was happy it was over so quickly! When I look back I would rather have a little fast labor then one that is really long...
Oh the other thing is my midwife was awesome with #2. When I got to transition which was my freak out beg for the epidural time she got my attention and told my to calm down its almost over now lets start pushing!
