I know there were a bunch of us that wanted one and that were fairly active on the NCB board. I think most of us ended up with C-sections, though, sadly enough. (Well, sad for me, I am sure not everyone feels that way). Who was able to besides Kelli?

I don't really go to the NCB board anymore because I am not going to have anymore kids, but really wish I had been successful.

I had a NCB. It was my third and best labor/delivery. With the previous two I had used IV meds, and really didn't want to this time, and I was lucky that I didn't need them. I am very happy with the experience I had.

I did. No pain meds or pit. I really think I was able to skip pain meds because my periods are normally so painful. It never really got that painful for me for some reason and I was already at 7cm when I got to the hospital. Dilated to 10 within a few hours after that. Not really sure how I managed to work it out like that but I did.

I did but mostly because there was no time to even think about meds when things started to actually hurt enough for me to think I wanted meds.

Hmmm...hard to say.

I had Pitocin to augment my labor, but no other meds (like pain meds) outside of that.

I was induced but it was vaginal and as natural as I could make it
No major interventions, just took mild painkiller called nubaine.

I did...but I didn't want to lol. I'm not good with pain, or so I thought. I wanted my epi so bad but no one knew or well..believed I was in labor and didn't realize until I was 10cm and Owen's head was coming out. When they told me it was time to push I was like " NO I WANT ME EPI FIRST!" and they were like no this baby is going to be out in 5 mins...too late for that.

I really proved myself wrong!

I had pitocin at 3:30pm and delivered Leah at 5:34pm - I had no painkillers at all, I had a shot of nubain with my son 3 hrs before delivering him. I was hoping to get nubain this time around but when the pain started getting unbearable I was already 9cm and ready to push, they said the meds would have made the baby sleepy if I had gotten them that close to having her.

I was induced and attempted NCB but ended up having 2 small doses of narcotic pain relief. My doctor and nurses both consider my birth NCB but I don't really think of it that way (maybe because I don't remember a lot of it including DD actually coming out of me)

I did. No meds/IV/etc. Everything went great until my placenta decided not to detach, so 4 hours after Donovan was born I had to go to the hospital, but I was home a couple hours later.
