Anyone else push at 9.5 cm on a cervical lip - WITHOUT feeling the urge to push? I think this is something I've read about before here & it seems it's generally torturous.
My DD was posterior & during my HB attempt, my MW suggested I try to push while she held back the lip. It was awful. Like shoot-me-in-the-head painful. I wasn't feeling ANY urge to push at all, and when I tried to do so, I didn't feel DD moving down at all, so it wasn't feeling productive or effective and it was absurdly painful. I also tried pushing at 9.5 cm without my MW reaching in to hold back the cervix & it was also nearly as bad.
