Thank you everyone for your responses.
pamamidwife - Gosh, I hope you're right. In that I'll have a shorter labor. My own midwife said the same thing. My iron levels were actually very good throughout my last pregnancy, so I'm hoping they'll be good again.
blueviolet - thank you for the links. Very interesting stuff. I think I'm going to have research that some more. I'm curious to see what my midwife thinks of it too. I pushed very hard, in fact my voice was completley hoarse afterward from all the groaning.
sun-shine01 - Sorry to hear you had to go through the same thing. It wasn't much fun was it? One of the other mom's in the birth classes we took (who also was in training to be a midwife) had the same thing happen too, though she had a fast furious labor and birth. She didn't seem worried about it happening again though. I had a dream a few weeks ago where I was giving birth to the baby I'm carrying now and in the dream everything went great. Easy labor, short pushing phase, and no hemorrhage! I was so happy in my dream, I'm hoping it comes true....
