Every time I had a contraction everyone would get quiet, and it was actually kind of annoying. I was in labor, not performing, people. I don't know why it annoyed me they got quiet, but the talking didn't bother me in the least. Go figure.
I didn't mind if people were talking quietly, I however did not want you talking to me.
I remember at one point I was laying down on my bed with my husband and he was behind me. While I was having contractions he would coach me and just being sweet. I told him to and very loudly shut up haha. I felt bad after I gave birth but at the time I just did not want him talking to me. I still feel bad about it!
I had background noise the whole time. Lets see, I went through Golden Girls, The Road to Wellville and Groundhog Day then I delivered listening to the Foo Fighters
I honestly prefer not to be talked to... I hated it when the nurses would talk to me or DH while I was in labor with DS2 in the hospital. I think I even told them to "shut the f*** up" at one point.... We'll see how it goes this time around since we're at home but I'm betting that I'm just going to want quiet or soft music.
I don't mind chatter in the beginning, because it keeps things light...but towered the end, just don't ask me questions while in the middle of a contraction! I have a tendency to focus within myself, and don't like being pulled out of that...but on the flip side of that, I didn't mind DH talking to me during contractions, because he was coaching me through them, and I needed that!
I guess I prefer more peace and quiet (like soft music) when I'm trying to focus.
