Labor wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... I had a short labor 5 hrs and jump started very quickly so I spent most of the time in transition, which at the time I was a little worried that this was the 'easy' part and I would't be able to handle transition ... I had an all natural birth at home.

Pushing contractions felt good to me and didn't hurt at all... I did feel myself tearing, strangely enough I had no tears on the perineum, just up the front.... OUCH..... and afterwards was WAY worse than the labor because of all the prying the midwife had to do to locate and stop my ruptured artery.

But all in all it wasn't the nightmare I was expecting.
