I only went thru 12ish hours of hard contractions this time."Ok. I wondered if that's some of why I wasn't allowed up for 24hrs. Maybe with a more relaxed atmosphere I'll feel better quicker this time around. Not getting my hopes up though!

I just remember not being able to lay in any position but my back for the first 24 hrs (until I was allowed up). I'm assuming like you said earlier, the first night might be pretty rough.
