I did really prepare this time...I mean, I did with my first but even more so this time. Everything was going really well for me until my water was broken. That event was so traumatic....with the amount of fluid, and we all thought the cord had prolapsed before we figured out it was his hand. I was an emotional mess after that so maybe it did trigger something that shut my body down from responding.
Thats the thing though, I feel I did everything in my power, and had such great support and I could tough out the pain...but my body just wasn't cooperating and there was no reason for it not to.
I'm really afraid to try again...mostly because if pushing was that horrific with the epidural...I don't even want to think about it without. That fear makes me not want to give birth again ever.
Will this fade do you think?
