Views on Birth Plans? FTM, Due 10-31-16

Amanda • This is my first pregnancy. My husband and I are very excited 😍❤

I know births almost never go as planned. Did you have a birth plan? Did your birth go as planned? What do you recommend and not recommend during labor? I'm getting closer and closer to my due date, and I'm just freaking out. 😞 I want everything to go smoothly, with no complications.

Did you have a Standard or Walking Epidural?

Did you get an enema?

Did you have continuous fetal monitoring? Or intermittent?

What pain releif did you use if not an epidural?

Did you do anything other than laying down to push? (Squat, stand, stool, etc.)

Did you get an episiotomy? If so, did it take longer than a tear to heal?

Did you wait to cut the umbilical cord?

I know it's a lot of questions!

Any advice would be great.
