My plan was to have a water birth. We had a blow up fishy pool lol. As it turns out the pool wasn't comfortable at all for me. I was perfectly comfortable laboring 'on land' but decided to try the pool in transition. The only way I could get comfy was being on my knees completely upright. If my hips were bent at all I was in horrible pain and the pool wasn't deep enough to accommodate that position so I was only in for 40 minutes. I do think it helped keep me warm during transition because I was freezing! I am torn as to whether I want to try a water birth next time. Since we already have the pool we'll probably set it up and see what I feel like when I'm in labor.
