I know that we don't always get the births we plan and we all have different specifics for labor but in the general sense, what kind of delivery of you hoping to have?

Vaginal with epidural...that's what I did last time and it was sooooo much better and I was so much more alert after the birth. The first birth they gave me some other pain meds that just made me tired but I'd wake up for the contraction...like what's the point.

I am so back and forth about this....

With the boys I had vaginal with no epidural. But my "older friends" all tell me how awesome the epidural is and that delivery is so much harder than when they were younger. So I am going to keep an open mind going into delivery.

Mine will be a vaginal with no epi/pain meds and will be another water birth. My last one was Sooooo amazing I can't WAIT to do it again I've never had the epi with any of my kids, I did have iv narcotics (one dose) with a couple of them but hate the way it made me feel and won't do it again.

vaginal with no pain meds or epidural. Having a water birth also for the first time at a birth center and no epidural or pain meds available there.

I voted vaginal, WITH epidural..but I am going to try very hard to go without one. But I am not against getting one if I think I will cope better with one, so that's why I chose that.

Add to mine a calm induction just like with DD! It may not happen, but that went so smoothly I would love a repeat.

I voted vaginal with epidural. We will see what actually happens though. If I do end up getting induced you can bet your sweet stuff I will be getting an epi as soon as I can lol!!! Although I did live without it for 30 hours last time!

Vaginal with no meds please!

Wish water birth was an option but not yet sadly

I am really not liking how everyone asks this question and when I say that I want as fully unmedicated as possible, I get the snide remarks, you won't be saying that when you are in labour... yes I get that its painful, but seriously, please give me some support! Not tear me down for trying for what I want Any you other ladies feeling like that?

It's looking like a scheduled c section unless I go into labor before the c section date (likely my due date to give me a chance) which my dr will let me attempt a VBAC.
