I never doubted that I could do it. The night before when labor wasn't active, I cried a bit because I just wanted it to be over, then I slept and bucked up. Then during transition I had the "I don't want to do this anymore" comment. Not can't, but don't want to. But DH told me, "Yes you do!", and I moved on.
During this last birth I had a couple of moments in spite of the whole thing taking an hour.
I had four irregular no big deal contractions, called my mw to give her a heads up, and right after that, they started coming every two minutes, long and realllllly strong. I was thinking I still had hours in front of me, and I was thinking I couldn't take even one more, much less the whole rest of it.
The other moment was right about at the ring of fire-- panted through a couple contractions and then knew I needed to push again, but she was coming so quickly and I could feel how big she was. I was really scared for a bit- at the very least I was pretty sure I was going to split in half if I pushed at all.
I guess I learned fast labors aren't necessarily easy!
