At least you got a pretty short labor since you couldn't have the epidural!!! The labor gods owed you at LEAST that

The two times I've pushed without any pain meds....I had a hard time actually STARTING to push for a couple contractions...I was too busy fighting the pain and such .... but it does seem a little better when you get a good push going and start to focus.

Congrats Again!!!!

Wow, that's a great birth story!

I was just thinking about your post about not having pain from BFing... maybe it's your body's way of making up for not letting you get the epidural during labor! LOL

Congrats again!

I can't believe I never read this before! What a story! I had no idea you had Ava with NO pain meds... Thankfully it was a pretty quick labor! Especially for a first baby and being induced.

WOW! AMazing! You are my hero doing it without drugs! Just the thought of that scares me! I had no idea Ava was over 8 pounds. She was a good size baby!
