View Poll Results: Did you cry during labor or birth?
i did.i cryed when i got into the 3rd part of labor and all the pain was down in the lower part of my back (i had a epidural too). and i also cryed when i was pushing cause i couldn't feel anything so that was very hard for me to do. as i never had a epi before.
Yes, with both. I cried during Caleb's labor once the pitocin started making my contractions harder and stronger, but then I got the epi at 4 cm and all was peachy.
With my second son Lucas, as soon as I hit 6 cm the pain became unbearable and I cried the whole time (along with yelling and swearing, LOL). I still managed to go natural without any pain meds, though, so every tear was worth it. And of course I cried happy tears when they handed him to me!
Ive had 3 children naturally and I can honestly say..I know why they offer epidurals now..LOL..I would have gotten one had there been time..So yes..I screamed and cried and said a lot of really interesting things..Funny thing though..my daughter was my only induced labor..and the pitocin wasnt nearly as bad as ppl made it out to be..My labors tend to be short.my last 2 were only about 2 hrs..and only about 5 mins of that was unbearable pain..but by the time I realized it hurt so much I was holding my baby..Im hoping this one goes that easily and quickly..LOL..
I cried when the midwife told me that the baby was stuck and if I couldn't get him out in one more hour, I would have a c-section. Then I put all of that emotion into my pushing and he popped out Then I started bawling at the sight of my new squishy babe
