I cried the second I got into the room because of fear - but they gave me my epi right off the bat and took all my pain away for checks, breaking my water, labor, etc.

I never felt any pain thank god, and I am a wuss.

I bawled SO hard when they handed her to me, because I was in love.

Not during labor, but with both I did cry later when it was just me and DH getting to know our brand new baby.

I didn't cry from the pain, I just screamed a lot. lol I am surprised I didn't cry though, I'm a big wimp!

I didn't cry when I had Shawn but I did cry after I had Jeremy. Dh and I both cried. It was such an overwhelming experience and so amazing to see our first baby.

Yes, I cried when they told me i had to have a c-section. I didn't want to get one Im sure if i wouldnt have been drugged up, i would have cried of happiness if she had been born naturally.

I did not cry. I was actually surprised that I did not cry when I held my babies. I always thought I'd be so overcome with emotion that I'd cry...but it did not happen...

i did.i cryed when i got into the 3rd part of labor and all the pain was down in the lower part of my back (i had a epidural too). and i also cryed when i was pushing cause i couldn't feel anything so that was very hard for me to do. as i never had a epi before.

Yes, with both. I cried during Caleb's labor once the pitocin started making my contractions harder and stronger, but then I got the epi at 4 cm and all was peachy.

With my second son Lucas, as soon as I hit 6 cm the pain became unbearable and I cried the whole time (along with yelling and swearing, LOL). I still managed to go natural without any pain meds, though, so every tear was worth it. And of course I cried happy tears when they handed him to me!

Ive had 3 children naturally and I can honestly say..I know why they offer epidurals now..LOL..I would have gotten one had there been time..So yes..I screamed and cried and said a lot of really interesting things..Funny thing though..my daughter was my only induced labor..and the pitocin wasnt nearly as bad as ppl made it out to be..My labors tend to be short.my last 2 were only about 2 hrs..and only about 5 mins of that was unbearable pain..but by the time I realized it hurt so much I was holding my baby..Im hoping this one goes that easily and quickly..LOL..

I cried out of emotion and fear because I was only 35w2d when I went into labour.
