Do you think your DD may have been OP (or just not OA) when you started pushing and when she was born?
SubliminalDarkness, I've read the same things about pushing and 10 cm. I wouldn't have described what I felt as needing to push. It was more like, severe pain and discomfort. But I also feel like.... What do I know? I never did this before! When other mamas say they felt the need to push, does it feel like it can just happen, like a bm? (I didn't feel like that.)
In reflecting on the experience, I've been thinking that while the midwife didn't pressure me to take any medication (as I had requested), she may have treat me as if I had pain relief (not just with the pushing; the rest of my time laboring in the hospital was troublesome as well).
Thanks again for all of your thoughts & comments. I hope to come to terms with the experience so I can be better prepared if there is ever a next time, and hopefully not have bad memories or fears about birth.
