Mine was my first baby, so of course there were things different than what I expected.

My labor was only 3 3/4 hours. I expected much longer.

I expected to walk around longer and maybe squat while delivering. Once the RN got here, though, and made me lie down so she could check dialation (to decide when to call the mw out) I couldn't get up, LOL! I was already 9 cm when she checked me, though, so really I wouldn't have wanted to be upright any more! I rolled onto my side and didn't move again. There was no getting on my knees to deliver!

Nothing was disappointing about it, though. It was great.
