Those are great! Here's a few of mine from Ethan's birth...

Sitting on the birthing ball, in between contractions...I think I was trying to smile, but it ended up just looking annoyed instead. lol



Breathing during a contraction--I think this was somewhere around 4-5 cm:



And after Ethan and I had both gotten cleaned up a bit and dressed:

Jessica, lol thanks, but that's because it was only the early part of labor, before they broke my water and really got things going. I think my husband was too traumatized by it all to take any pictures of that! Plus I ended up stripping down to just my sports bra and nothing else after I got in the tub, so I wasn't exactly decent for a photoshoot.

Me either... I don't do pictures of myself and I don't think anyone would be brave enough to get close to me with a camera when I'm in pain. I think my husband took one when I was starting the induction and then one after I'd delivered and sat up in bed... I was sooooo swollen in the second pic. I don't have them on my computer, but I look a serious mess in both.

Well, L&D is not a pretty thing for a woman's body---it's rough! I know after being induced I swelled up a lot too. My feet especially were really big for a week. It felt weird walking on them.

I have no labor pictures either. My DH is not a great photographer. I think there must have been a nurse telling him what to take pictures of because there are some fantastic pictures from when he and DD went to the nursery.
