What is Pregnancy Like?
The best way to describe pregnancy is the word change.  Your body changes, your emotions change, and your appetite changes.  There will most likely be some weight gain which varies in amount from person to person.  There will also be periods of tiredness, possibly some morning sickness, and also periods of high energy. 

What is delivering a baby like? 
Each time a women delivers a baby it can be a different experience.  If this is your first baby delivery it can be exciting, frightening, tiring, and painful, depending on whether or not you would like to use medication during your delivery. As you get closer to delivery your baby will move into a better position to be born.  There are several parts to the labor process, but it will most likely begin with very strong cramps and a tightening in your abdomen.  Some women’s water may break while others have to have their water broken. As your body prepares to deliver the baby your cervix will dilate creating more room for the baby to pass through.  When your body has made all the preparations to deliver your baby you will feel the urge to push. The pain is often intense when pushing begins as your body stretches to deliver the baby. If everything goes as planned you will push the baby out into the world without complication.  After the baby is delivered you will have to push several more times in order to deliver the placenta.  This should not hurt. Some women may need stitches to repair any tearing in the vaginal area.  Some women may need to have C-Sections because their babies did not move into the correct birthing position, or there are complications during labor.  Your doctor will continuously be monitoring you during labor and will know if a C-Section is the best option. Remember that each baby delivery is different and no two stories are exactly the same!
