My birth was definitely different than I had envisioned it. I didn't expect for it to last 3 days to begin with!! I also didn't expect the pushing to be more difficult than my second birth. I figured the third would be easier. Granted, I still only pushed for a few minutes, but at the time it felt a lot longer!!!!

As for changing anything... Kate had some breathing problems initially, was quite blue and required oxygen that my midwives had to administer. I certainly didn't expect that, and thus wasn't able to nurse her or hold her for a little bit. Obviously I knew it was best, but I certainly feel like I missed out on those precious moments right after the birth.
