I sympathize! My DD does something similar. It turns out that it mostly happens when she is overly tired - she cries out suddenly but won't nurse. We started getting her to sleep much earlier, like...

For me it either feels like tingling, or sometimes numbness. I often feel it more strongly in the breast I'm not nursing on. Or sometimes I will have the sensation that the baby's latch suddenly...

I'm so sorry your homebirth didn't work out. :( When I did my hospital birth plan, just googling "sample birth plan" was pretty helpful. I also ran it by my doula and she had lots of helpful...

I think you may still find it helpful. It's not quite the same as having to concentrate on a task, at least for me. It's more like learning to put yourself in a different state of mind. I'd give it...

Thanks everyone! I'm enjoying reading about your experiences. They've given me some good ideas, like setting up a comfy area to rest near the tub, which is on a different floor from my bed.
