Mine was great, exactly as I had hoped. But I think a huge part of it is not having too many expectations and knowing that you will go with the flow, KWIM? I had my water birth, but I wasn't up walking, outside, cooking, drawing, etc. in between contractions like I thought. It wasn't dark enough for candles until the very end. But at the time I didn't even care.

If you have everything planned out in your head how it should go, you inevitably will be disappointed somehow.

Not the first time, but my vbac was amazing. (Though the labor was kind of long, three days!)
