Might be a strange question but its something that has crossed my mind several times since I had my son. I miss my birth. I felt some 'pain' and it wasnt 'easy' but it was such a wonderful experience that I find myself wishing I could relive it.

So, do you ever miss your birth experience?

I missed not having a vaginal birth, but I wouldn't say I miss what labor I did have. Probably if I was lucky enough to only feel "some pain" I'd feel differently. I think I have a high pain threshold and I was ready for no drugs, but apparently it was so bad that I was screaming. I don't remember much... it's like I blacked out! That said, I might still try for another natural birth in the future.

I do , even with the 26 hours of labor ending in a c-section it was still in a strange way fun lol , I waited so long to be there doing that and it was painful yes , hard yes but great ( even though it turned out nothing like I wanted ) . I can't wait to do it all over again with this lil one , a lil differently though !

Not really, all my birth experiences have been individual & different.
I've enjoyed labour & birth, but don't want to relive any of it again

YES! I do!! I loved my birth, even though it was painful. I actually enjoy watching the video, too. I haven't done it since shewas first born though. Believe it or not, watching it makes me want to do it again(as in have another). And we really can't afford that right now, so I have to try and stay away from it!

Yes, very much so. It was a wonderful time to see the power and strength that I have within me. I felt giddy most of the time, and elated once she was born. I was on a high from the time I started labor until 2 days after Kailey was born......I loved every minute of it.

I loved my birth experience with my daughter.... though I am doing a few things differently this time around. I can't wait... I am excited about the whole birth process!

I loved my son's birth and I replay it in my head a lot, especially now that I'm getting close to doing it all again. I don't want to relive his birth because that was a special time with him but I'm excited for the birth of my second son and see how similar/different it will be.

Oh, absolutely!! I still like to relive my birth over and over again in my head. I don't do that with my first medicalized birth. Which doesn't make one daughter any more special than another, the births were just better. I get jealous of all of the mommy's I know that are pregnant and going to give birth. Dh and I want more kids anyway, but so many times I think "What if I wasn't ever able to have anymore??" I want to experience it at least one more time! It is just so surreal!
