1st baby - Unexpected, Horrendous and Confusing.

This describes my shock induced labour, failed epidural and eventual CS.

2nd baby - Okay, Dissappointing and Unsettling.

This describes my unsettled labour with constant interruptions fighting to vbac with opposing medical professionals eventually turned into a CS.

3rd baby - Exhilarating, Exciting and Amazing.

This describes my homebirth, normal labour, excitement at the realisation that I could do it and then the Amazing birth.

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!

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.

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! biggrin.gif

DD1 - Fast
      overwhelming (in a bad way!)
      exhilarating (when pushing)

DD2 - calm
      then loss-of-control

(ok that's 3 words for the last one laughing2.gif - 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).

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. ph34r.gif 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.
