You can certainly do it! Trust yourself and trust birth. I had pitocin contractions with my first birth and it was far worse than any natural labor contractions. Teresa is right, labor hurts no matter what, but what pitocin did to me was ridiculous... no breaks between contractions whatsoever. With my natural labors I had a couple minutes in between contractions, and I LIVED for those brief moments of peace. Kellliee is also right, that being in your own home makes a world of difference as well. Being in my own comfortable environment helped with the pain and discomfort as well. Lots of hugs to you. What you are feeling is sooo normal. I went through a phase during my pregnancy where I questioned my choices as well, I think its normal for us to do that.
