I had a csection with my twins. I wanted to experience labor because i wasn't sure if we would have another baby or not. I knew I was having a csection because of a breech baby. I labored at home for a long time before my water broke and I had to go in. I was on my back and hooked up to monitors for the next 5 hours, waiting for my Dr. to finish patients for the day and come to the hospital. It was horrible to lay there like that. I was practically climbing out of the bed and was relieved when I got my spinal. For my third child, my water broke and I went in a few hours later. I had to be hooked up to the monitors again for almost an hour since I was doing a VBAC and my midwife wanted a good monitoring session when I first checked in. Baby was not cooperating, so my short monitoring session turned into a not so short session. I was able to concentrate better this time though and wasn't required to lay on my back. My whole labor was so much more relaxed and better. I felt amazing as soon as I was ready to push. I was so much more in control.

Thank you peimum for my siggie
