Quoting msplainjane:“ Here's my short version labor story lol 2:30 am Saturday May 2nd my water broke in bed.I was having ... [snip!] ... such a great husband and father. I'm so proud of him! I know I left some details out so if you have any questions just ask!”
Sounds like a great labor. And a good sized baby! HOORAY for no tears! Recovery is so awesome without stitches.
That transition is a bitch, no?
Luckily mine have always been really fast, just a few contractions. And spontaneous pushing is unreal huh? Like a freight train! I always think its SO weird when I watch hospital birth videos and they have to tell the ladies... Ok now hold you knees and hold your breath and PUSH 12345678910... I'm like WTF?? When I had to push, I KNEW I had to push and there was NOTHING I could do to stop it! I was pushing, like it or not. LOL
I'm proud of you!
