Quoting ☮ Phuket:" this is very similar to my labor. like I felt the contractions which were low and stuff and didnt make ... [snip!] ... was when it got bad. but i was still smiling and goofing off at 7cm. my natural birth was by far the best of all my birhts!"
I stalled at 4cm for 4.5 hours with my youngest. I had an awesome OB who didn't see a reason to even prep for a C/S since I had had 3 vaginal births. He told me to take the time I needed. I caved into an epidural because I knew why I was stalled. About 40 minutes after they got the epidural in, she was crowning.
4 to crowning in less than an hour. It was insane. He came in to check on me before going off to do a scheduled c/s at 1pm. I was on my side so he rolled me to my back to do an exam and yelled for the nurses to get in.
She was born after one little push.
We like to say she just fell out of me.
