Anyone have funny/quirky/ironic stories from labor & birth?? 

 

As my contractions got worse and worse I started vocalizing using the word 'relax' over and over again. Then the contractions got bad enough that I couldn't remember what 'my word' was and it was messing with my concentration. I knew it had an 'x' and an 'l' in it. Weird things went through my head; "rolodex", "expel", everything but "relax". I told DH and our doula that I needed to be prompted. I felt like I had forgotten my part in a play- "LINE!" only it was "WORD!" as the contractions started and DH reminded me, "relax". 

 

It's an odd thing to remember, but that feeling of "OMG what's my word?!?" will stick with me for awhile.

When I had my second child, I was in an inflatable fishy kids pool in the middle of my living room.  I was on all fours, with everyone around me on the outside of the pool.  I was making all this primitive sounds, and everyone was checking my rear end out to see progress of the baby.  I thought, "Jeez, it's like I'm a barn animal in a stall or something, sitting here on all fours with everyone outside circling me and checking me out."  I couldn't stop feeling like a barn yard animal!  biglaugh.gif
