I know I felt dirty enough from the "land" birth

Did you shower right away after the water birth?
Like I said, I was really surprised at how *clean* I felt after my water birth! After my "land" birth I felt so dirty and sticky I went and took a shower immediately! But after my water birth I felt really clean and fresh. I didn't shower until the next day. Up until the end, it was perfectly clean (my water doesn't break until crowning), but even then the water really want's that gross. At least, that was my experience.
