Haven't had a NCB yet myself, but from what I have heard the self-doubt usually kicks in during transition, which is when you're already 7-8 cm dilated. So it's the very end of the journey when you're about to start pushing. From what I learned in class transition usually lasts a maximum of 2 hours in first time moms, and can last for only 30 minutes. So I've been trying my best to mentally prepare myself for when I get to that point of thinking "I can't do this", to also get excited and push through because that's when you're almost to the end and will be meeting baby soon.
Having said that, I look forward to hear what the other ladies answer with because this is something I think about often as well.
Expecting #3 in January 2016!
