I'm responding over in the new chat thread -->
Oh good job!  you rock!  I had a long pushing phase with DD1 - almost 6 hours - and finally got her out with a little vacuum assist.  She was asynclitic.  It was HARD but I got such a feeling of accomplishment from it and really have positive memories of the birth.  I'm so impressed you made it through 8 hours in 2nd stage and still had the strength to push him out.  So amazing.

With my first I definitely did not want her coming before my due date, as we were finishing up building and moving into our house.  I also had bruised ribs from falling off a ladder that weren't healed until right before her appearance at 41w5d.  And honestly, most babies are easier in than out - up to a certain point.  That said, I was pretty busy doing as many natural induction things as I could starting at 41 weeks, because I've heard too many stories about...
You can start one!  (or feel free to join in here until somebody else does )
