on the toilet at the hospital (no meds). Labored most of the time there to ensure my privacy. I thought I'd be able to get to the floor to squat by the bed when the time came, but by the time the nurse realized I was crowning (I knew, just didn't bother to mention it to anyone, lol) I didn't feel like moving. Wish I had at least stood up, because since I was holding my butt up away from the toilet seat so the dr. could catch the baby, I tore a little, but oh well. It was still a nearly perfect, extremely low-intervention hospital birth, so I'm happy
this baby: will probably be squatting. That felt REALLY good to me, and the only reason I went back to the toilet last time was because I thought my legs were going to go to sleep! (weren't even sore the next day, my labor was pretty fast). I've been sitting on the birth ball and doing a lot of yoga squats in preparation.
