The only thing I was going to add was that we used a fishnet to scoop up floaters too. I tend to poop while pushing.
I delivered the placenta in the water and the midwife cleaned everything so I don't really know about the cleaning. I wasn't cold when I got out. I was too pumped up to even think about it! Like kellilee, the water felt extremely great when you first get in, but things pick back up pretty quickly. The dirty water didn't bother me, but dh thought it was yuck, LOL! I don't think he will ever get in the tub with me while birthing after seeing it.
Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!
See my growing belly!
