How was the experience: After three different times of thinking I was in labor, and being a week overdue, I went into labor at 4:30 a.m. A very short labor (8 hours) and only 40 minutes of pushing. I had a wonderful birth doula and was able to have a drug free birth, with no hemorrhaging (I hemorrhaged with my firstborn). AT the time I remember thinking I could not tolerate the pain but now I cannot remember what it felt like.
I have bonded very well with the baby. He is adorable. My first boy is showing a lot of resentment towards me, which is tough, but understandable.
