I just read a thread in birth and beyond about breathing your baby down and trying not to push. It reminded me of my hbac and how I did the very opposite of that. Once I had the urge to push, I pushed so insanely hard I was screaming to get my little baby out. I was a little hopeful that I could bring her into this world in a more controlled fashion, but there was a lot of emotion behind the pushing. I just wanted her here, birthed vaginally.
I couldn't help but push! It was the strongest involluntary urge I have EVER had. In fact, I thought the pushing part was the easiest part of the whole labor. Finally something made the pain go away. My husband thought that was going to be the hardest part of the labor...turns out...it was the most satisfying. I think it took me less than 20 minutes to push her out. It's amazing how the body can eliminate pain. I had a 3rd degree tear and didn't even feel it happening. Isn't that crazy!
