Yes, I did. I vomited with my first doctor/nurse assisted birth and eventual c-section. Their reaction was to put gravol into my iv. I vomited with my second, midwife assisted natural vbac. Her reaction was to just keep rinsing out the bedpans and giving them back to me and telling my husband to wipe my forehead with a cold cloth.

I'm a vomiter, but the second birth I was far less upset by it.

I posted earlier about my med-birth (no vomiting) but now that I had my unmed I can actually vote! I only had about a second or two of slight nausea during transition and no vomiting at all. This time I ate as I wanted during early labor, too (with my medicated I had horrible heartburn from no food for 12+ hours).

I had an unmedicated birth center birth and I puked every other contraction. I was puking long before transition. It really stank, because they allowed to eat or drink (in my case puke) whatever I wanted. I still get nausea when I have a string let down. Oxytocin makes me ill and I have not figured out why. Any thoughts.

Yep. Right before serious pushing. All over my sweet and very patient dh who didn't even flinch! I actually thought I missed him until afterward b/c he literally didn't move a muscle.

I also pooped, and peed. Yep, had no idea that peeing was even an option during pushing. Basically I was a mess of bodily fluids.

Yes during labor with my first. I vomited and pooped up a storm for HOURS! I remember it like it was yesterday! I was trying to deal with contractions while sitting on the thrown and a few times not even bothering with the bucket when getting sick but just leaning over and getting sick in the bathtub...yes I know a lovely visual:!

My first, I did, my second, I didn't. My first wouldn't drop, when I threw up he finally lowered. I'm hoping for no throwing up this time around either.

I said, but it's really Yes and No.

With DD#1, I did.

With DD#1, I didn't. Though I was nauseous . . .

Oh yeah, I puke everytime. But I am a puker anyway, when I am preggers. Oh wait, come to think of it, I throw up when I am overly nervous too. I'm just a pukey person apparently.

Yes and no. I did when I hit transition with my first, but did not at all with my second.

I didn't vomit, but I felt like it every time the m/w's tried to push food or juice on me. Finally, this last birth I said, "I DON'T WANT FOOD OR JUICE - PERIOD!"

Yes, everytime, but it's different. It just happens, it doesn't bug me or anything like if I was sick (or like the morning sickness I'm dealing with now).

No, but like others, I'm not a puker. I had pretty miserable morning sickness during pregnancy, but only threw up once due to some nasty prenatals. I would have liked to vomit if it would have made labor faster!

I just had a pitocin-induced (for PROM), but drug-free labor and birth. I vomited twice at the beginning of transition. I actually preferred vomiting to having contractions, because vomiting doesn't hurt. I would have gladly traded the pain of contractions for vomiting during the rest of my labor.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

Not during my first natural birth (with #2)
But once during my second natural birth (#3) which was a 6 hour very intense labor. I guess maybe that was transition? if so it was the only sign of transition.

Oh yeah, lots of times. I don't think I started puking until about the last ten hours of labor though. It was so exhuasting. I remember my midwife trying to pry my vomit bowl out of my fingers to get me a new one. I was scared to part with it for even a second! I puked more during labor than I did my first trimester. It sure does make labor a little less than a beautiful experience. If I got a centimeter for every time I threw up I must have dilated to a 40 before dd came out.

only once during my non-medicated birth, around 20+ times during my medicated induction/c-section.

I did not barf. I also barely had an appetite for the 34 hour labor. Our mw and doula kept making me take bites of this and that and sip juice and water between contractions to keep my energy up.

Yes, and I was absolutely stunned by how often and how much!

I'm normally not a puker, but I was in transition for about 7 hours during my DD's homebirth and I vomited a lot.
