Hello all! I'm newly pregnant- about 6 weeks (doctor's appointment in 2 days for a more exact figure!).
I was never one of those girls to dream about having a big wedding or anything like that, but I have always dreamed I'd have a natural birth. In a hospital, but no pain meds! I'm 30 years old, first baby, and have been imagining this for years!
Now that I'm actually pregnant, I'm a pretty nervous that I'll wimp-out and ask for meds! I just found out my mom was in a labor with my sister for 36 hours with no meds! That gives me hope.
Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy! NCB is not as horrible as a lot of people make it out to be. It depends a lot on your mindset and preparation. I used Hypnobabies and really credit it for keeping me calm and collected during my birth. I've heard really good things about the Bradley method too.
