Here is mine:

Could have been better, could have been worse, baby was born in my bathroom, man birth is strange.

Very disappointing, I wish I could remember any of it.

For me, birth is easy & it's letting them go, to grow that is painfull.

Breathing, rocking, moaning, pushing and grunting, then unspeakable joy and sweet relief.

Less than six hours after the first contraction, our sweet daughter came into the sunlight and changed the lives of her parents forever.

Painful and scarey, but very worth it!

It was long, happy, powerful, tiring, and awsome.

Long and exhausting, not painful due to epidural, but confusing and frustrating as a result of the numbness

#2
FAST and amazing, totally wonderful!

Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and maternally, excruciatingly painful and devastating.

Suddenly it came on like gangbusters, and when it was over I felt very strong.

1st birth: I wish I never took that Nitris, I felt sick and don't remember the birth.

2nd birth: Holy Sh$t that was fast, hurt like hell though.
2nd birth was 1 hour from the time my water broke till he was out :

3rd: Oh, baby...I am so sorry.

Relief the wait was over, apprehensive of the unknown, amazed at my bodies ability to birth, fatigued by the hours of pushing, frustrated I was on dry land and overwhelmed with joy when my child was born.

I was 1-2 weeks over due, had been in prodromal labor for 2+weeks. This was my first child and from first "real" contraction to ready to push was only 4 hours and then I pushed for 4 more hours! I had to get out of the birth tub, and gave birth on my living room floor - oh well!

Not at all what I had in mind but in the end, a rewarding and not a traumatic experience.

Labor isn't nearly as bad as it's made out to be, but pushing sucks and boy does my butt hurt!
