I am expecting my first child, although I am only 5 months along in my pregnancy from about 8 weeks I have been having sleepness nights and panick attacks about labour and coping with the baby. I have a few questions if someone can help that would be fantastic.
1. Once fully dilated do the contractions stop and is there less pain.
2. I have heard people say that their labour went for 24 to 32 hours, do you have pain all this time or do the contractions come for a little while then go for a while?
3. Does anyone else have panick attacks about labour?
4. What does a contraction REALLY feel like, I've been told it's like period pain but 100 times worse?
I think I have a million more questions but this will do for now...
