[snip!] ... pushing, they didn't ask, they jut got th stuff out and said "ok I'm going to break your water now". I said "oh no thank you"."I am sure you can - however both my labors were in the neighborhood of 70+ hrs, I was nearly delirious, on no pain meds & no sleep, etc - so it wasn't anything I was even thinking clear enough to care about I just wanted it over. On my list of things I want done a certain way, that one isn't near the top. I was just happy to have two vaginal deliveries. LOL

[snip!] ... my water at the end as well and I was so exhausted and in pain that I could not have cared less. I just wanted him out and ok."I refused a lot of stuff - but I think they could have offered a lobotomy at pushing & I'd have said yes. LOL My Ob said I was the only woman who was snoring during pushing without any meds he ever met & he's been doing this for 27 yrs (at the time I birthed my older one) LOL. I guess I was snoring for like 90 seconds at a time & waking up screaming & pushing & going back to snoring. LOL I DID manage to have my head together enough on #2 to say NO episiotomies. They cut me 3 times with my 1st & I still tore through my rectum. :/ I had only 3 stitches with #2 (might have been 2 - no more than 3 though). I think my cuts with #1 made it worse. #2 was a bigger baby & all I got was a skid.

But I definitely want to be cut. I was so afraid of tearing or being cut."OMG. I can't fathom pushing that long. The ONE way I seem to luck out is fast pushing. 18 mins with #1 & like 8 mins with #2...and that might be longer than it was. I just know that I went home with #2, a lo t- and when I came back the last time he was crowning - and it was 11 mins from the time I got into the room & the baby was out. I am not sure when I started to push - as soon as the Dr got in the room. Labor might go really slow for me - but at least pushing seems to be okay thank goodness.

Mine were 8lbs 1oz 21 inches, and 9lb even 20 1/2 inches respectively."Nope - small babies but they had big heads & still do. Around 38cm & only 6lb 3oz with #1 & 6lb 9oz with #2. They were 37 weekers. At 5 my olde rone has the same size head as the average adult man despite being average sized. LOL And #2 is about to turn 3 & wears a size 9 helmet. Egg heads. :/
