Oh Denise... I really hope this is it for you! Wouldn't it be really upsetting to have to go through all that pain and have to still wait for a while!?
Just relax, take deep breaths, imagine your baby pushing down on your cervix with each contraction and envision a flower opening and closing with the pain. That was one trick I heard that can keep your mind more focused on something else other than the pain.
I am looking forward to reading your birth story soon!!!
Good luck and remember, the end result is alllllll worth it!
