Thank you everyone for all of your input and stories...
I do plan on having doula (during the birth) and also a post-partum doula at home (especially if I come home 12 hours after baby is born).

Also, "Mom2Seven" I loved the "I eat Chinese Food on XMAS" U-Tube video...too funny!

Yes, thank you everyone for all your stories. I feel encouraged, empowered and much more positive about the experience. I think I'm even starting to look forward to it...just a little.

hmmmm .... what about these "emotional signposts"? I'd like to read more about this. I did 95% of my laboring at home with Rachel,and I'd love to do the same this time around.

My first birth was just fine. Especially for a first! It was long, and he was posterior, and I got worn out, but that's about as bad as it got. I was in hospital, and had some pain relief. Only an hour and a half of pushing which isn't bad for a first either (should have waited for the urge, but was coached) and not a stitch, tear, skid mark, nuthin'. The nurse checking my 'area' the next day said, and I quote "Looks like nothing happened down there!".

The colic, now, that was a different story but the birth was no biggie, other than how your first birth and baby completely rock your world and mind and everything anyways
