There is hope! Both of my deliveries were silent labor- meaning I felt nothing until the last few contractions. With my daughter, I was in hospital because of my previous history. I woke up from sleeping at 12 midnight. She was born at 12:10.

Don’t hate me cause I have silent labor!

I had my first with no pain medication and pitocin. By the time pushing came it was actually a relief to be able to push. Baby #2 I was progressing rapidly and panicked, I had IV pain med that stalled my labor completely and then an epidual at 10cm. With baby #3 I plan to have a natural birth again. I personally felt much more connected to the process (I know sounds super corny) and I felt things probably wold have gone more quickly with #2 if I would have just gone with the flow.

I’m hoping to go without an epidural this time, so I’d love to read some natural birth stories too! Are you planning on using a birthing ball or the tub during labor? I think I’m going to labor at home as long as possible and maybe use the tub at the hospital to help with pain relief.

My second I was unmedicated (first I was on laughing gas) It actually went very quickley the nurse said I was so incontrol of my body because I was not medicated everything went very smoothly.  Also when I held DS I was happy the first I felt out of it like it wasn’t really there almost like I smoked a few left handers.

@ieatunicorns:  I agree with the pushing did feel like a relief when you got the overwhelming sensation to push.  I also felt more connected the second time.

@KatyElle:  My husband also massaged my lower back it felt great.  I guess I kept asking him to push harder on my back and the next day my lower back was bruised with broken blood vessels it felt great at the time.

@KatyElle:  Ah, yeah the antibiotic would be difficult in the tub. I’m googling breathing exercises since any that I learned during my birthing class went out the window during intense contractions last time. I did pack a tennis ball in my hospital bag to help massage my back (DH gives bad massages but for some reason rolling the tennis ball on my back helped immensely).

@KatyElle:  My FI never complained about rubbing my back but we got to the hospital at midnight and he ask how long was labor with Ethan I answer 8 hrs he responds I don’t want to sit here for that long I almost killed him.
