So far I seem to be the only person I know of who never had any urge to push and never actually pushed on purpose. In my case my body just did it itself. Every other contraction my body pushed. It was like trying to hang onto something solid while being hit with a huge wave. Then every other contraction the midwife said push so I tried and she would say no, push like last time. I eventually figured out to just wait out the non pushing contractions and then hang on tight to someone for the wave contractions otherwise they would have knocked me off the birthing stool they were so intense. Anytone else experience this? I asked this on another board once but since 80%+ of the women on there had epidurals they would never have known anyway. People keep on talking about wanting to push and then how hard pushing was. Whereas I felt like I was just along for the ride. I am very curious to know if I will experience the same thing this time. I also am curious to know if this might have anything to do with my hypnobirthing work.
