Question, how do natural contractions compare with pit ones? I've never experienced a real one.......[/b]
Natural contractions are much nicer. I didn't get to really experience natural contractions with my first as my water broke before contractions started. I went to the hospital a couple hours after my water broke and when my contractions really didn't start and regulate like the nurses wanted, they put me on pitocin.
With my second, I went into labor just fine, still went to the hospital sooner than I should have, but when the contractions were 3 minutes apart, I didn't want to risk it and I was only at a 4. Then my labor stalled at 8cm and so they started me on pitocin since they had broke my water for me to try to help things move along (which I think made things stall as it was too soon). Anyway, I could definitely tell the difference in the natural and the pitocin contractions and I do not wish those nasty things on anyone. I'll take natural contractions any day.
