My demeanor doesn't really change in labor. With my last baby, I was talking to my mom on the phone when contractions started. They were coming about every 2 minutes. I was relaying details back to her and talking about how impatient I was as I didn't think I was in labor yet at the time. I was getting really frustrated because it didn't seem like anything was really happening. He was born 15 minutes after I called my mom.

When it really, really hit, I said: "I feel pressure," "I'm not trying to" in response to midwife saying not to push and "He's coming."
