Aughhhhh! A couple of weeks ago I was stressing about the idea of going overdue. Now I'm petrified that I'll actually go into labor! What if I tear from front to back?! What of the baby just explodes out of me leaving a trail of gore and horror?!

Well Payson flew out of me and she was my easiest delivery. If you push with your body you are less likely to tear, blue faced forced counting to 10 pushing causes tearing. With each of my births I did not know I tore until afterwards. Your body seriously is amazing!

Sometimes birth is easy (relative), sometimes birth is hard. Either way, it is temporary and you will come through it and have the most wonderful prize at the end.

Your body will take over, you wont have time to be scared.

I had a second degree tear with Alex that was quite long. The epidural wore off just before. I remember thinking "yup, that's a tear" and then forgot all about it.

'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!

My fast labors were much better for recovery even though I had no pain meds whatsoever (planned NCBs). It's amazing that your body knows when to push and will do it automatically. My first birth where I had an epidural so strong that I couldn't feel anything, I ended up pushing I effectively for over an hour and ended up with lots of stitches. Either way, birth happens and you forget about those details the minute baby is born

You'll be fine! I had a 4th degree tear, but I had NO CLUE that I tore, or that the doctor gave me an episiotomy, until they were stitching me up after Arthur was born. When you're in the moment, you don't notice anything other than getting that baby into the world. The worst part for me came after I was home from the hospital and had a migraine for 4 days.

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy
