long, disapponting, shattering
9.5 hours stuck on a bed with a syntocin drip in my arm. Thank goodness there was a beautiful baby at the end of it!

First child - Hard, painful, exhausting
(14hrs with 2.5hrs pushing, epidural and episiotomy)
Second child - empowering, quick, amazing
(5hrs, no drugs, 4mins pushing)
Hope to do it again one day

Exciting, Excruciating, Incredible. (DD's birth was long and awful, but I'll never forget the feeling of seeing her for the first time )

Long, Painful, Tiring.
36 hours of labour. episiotomy (sp).
But would do it all again in a heartbeat to have that feeling you get when they put your new baby on your chest for the first time. Three words for the:
Amazing, incredible, unforgettable.

Scared, stoned (I had morphine) and confusing (I had NO idea on what to do with a new born).
Would I do it again ? In a ****ing heartbeat.

Trying for baby number 8, so mustn't be too bad!

DS1 -horrible, painful, interventionist
DS2 - easy as breathing
DS3 - halfway between above
DD - longest; quickest recovery
Posted 27 October 2008 - 03:23 PM
Unexpected (a month early with no warning signs), heartbreaking (induced, no progress after 10 hours labouring, emergency C-section) life-changing (the most humbling, amazing experience ever and the greatest reward imaginable).

With DS ~ scary/exciting scared about the pain, but excited for it to be happening. long 16hours plus 2.5hrs pushing. Amazing having DH deliver DS and putting him on me (Midwives guided DS head, DH did the rest).
With DD ~ Empowering drug free and felt everything. Exciting Couldn't wait to meet her. Quick 1 minute delivery after 5 hours labour. Midwife was surprised at how quick I push her out.

DS1 - [b]Shock Amazed Help!
He was born by CS at 35 wks due to pre Eclampsia and I was an inexperienced 20 yr old.
DS2 - Loss Of Control
He was born by emergency CS after an attempted VBAC. I didn't know how to deal with the intensity of cx, I had interventions forced upon my and then he was taken from me by CS
DS3 - Calm Triumph Beautifull
My VBA2C boy born after 6 hrs labour basically pain free (breathing techniques) drug free and naturally! Hurrah!
Posted 28 October 2008 - 11:17 AM
DD1 - Fast
overwhelming (in a bad way!)
exhilarating (when pushing)
DD2 - calm
(ok that's 3 words for the last one - loss of control after driving to hospital - dissapointed i had to go, as it broke my fantastic concentration, and the pain became overwhelming, luckily DD came shortly after arriving, i didn't like not feeling in control).
Posted 28 October 2008 - 02:31 PM
Empowering, Intune, Intense - DD1's surprise prem labour (10hrs VB, gas in final 20mins). Absolutely wonderous birth, totally guided by my girl.
Panic-stricken painful fear - oops technically that's four... DD2's 13hr posterior labour after induction (1 dose gel @ 38w+6) threatened emerg.c/s, zero drugs (despite begging for an epi despite my desire to try drug-free), shocking tearing, epis., pushing urgently @ 8cm dilated due to flagging stats. Cord around neck. Forceps. Ugh. Very close to something far worse.

DS1 - textbook, empowering, life-changing
(induced vaginal birth, felt totally in control and in tune with my body the whole time, incredible feeling in becoming a first-time mother)
DS2 - confusing, distressing, relief
(induced labour, baby turned to face-presentation so emergency c/s, so relieved to finally hold him safely in my arms)
DS3 - intense, longed-for, blissful
(planned c/s, totally surreal to just turn up at the hospital and know I would be meeting my baby that day, flooded with love the moment I first saw him)

Exciting – When I was pregnant I couldn’t wait to give birth, to go into labour, and to meet my baby - then when it happened it was exciting!
Satisfying – especially when pushing, but being able to recognise the stages of labour and then pushing him out, that’s very satisfying for me.
Amazing – the overall feeling of what my body did and achieved…it was so cool.
