Was transition REALLY hard or was it so easy that you didn't even know you were going through it? The reason I ask is, transition with my son was very easy for me! I didn't even know I was going through it! I remember I started crying at one point and telling my DH that I couldn't do it anymore, but he encouraged me to keep breathing through them like I'd been doing, which gave me the strength to go on. I never had the classical symptoms though (Unable to relax, Shaking, Hot/Cold Flashes, Nausea/Vomiting, Burping or Hiccups, Cold sweating) and they were never right on top of each other. I was actually surprised when my midwife checked me and said that I was 9 1/2 cm with a lip! I am hoping that this labor will be the same, in that transition wont be that bad!
