At my first birth, after being on pit for 12 hrs and only being 4 cm dilated, my husband decided to go to the bathroom, read the paper and shave. While he was gone, my brother in law came by to keep me company. I was pretty numb due to the epi, but I suddenly felt like the baby was falling out of me. I told my BIL to go get someone quickly and instead he picked up the sheet and looked. : I was completely horrified. He turned white, started sweating and yelling for help in a freakily high voice. I ended up w/ a forceps "assisted" delivery an hr later. My Doctor had sterile drapes all over me and when I went to grab my ds off of my belly, he hit my hand with a clamp and said "Don't do that, you know better. It's a sterile field." I am a nurse, so I said "what in the world is sterile about childbirth?" He then started cussing at me in Spanish. I ended up having a 4th degree epi. My next OB was wonderful. She ended up inducing me though and went home after I had been on pit again for 12 hrs and was only 4 cm. Suddenly I was complete and DS2 had crowned. My Doctor was in the shower at home, with her beeper on vibrate. When she got out, she noticed the beeper had vibrated off the bathroom counter onto the floor. She ran into my room about 5 min later w/ wet hair saying "I didn't even get to put my deoderant on"....I didn't end up with an epi or tearing...I never even actively pushed. Much better the second time around...
Y'k, you're a perfect candidate to do a Home Birth.
