Ohhh my goodness, that was amazing! Good job! I know I made a hell of a lot more noise than that!
And, I'm now balling my eyes out! LOL!
I showed my son (who turns 5 next month) your baby when she was all wrapped up in your arms and he said she's soo cute that you shoulda named her Cutie:)
Congrats!

Haha, I had so much laughing gas that they took it away. The nurse tried to get me to sign the epidural papers and her words to me were "well, you're too stoned to be usefull! I'll get your fiance to sign it", and then I had an epidural, but I'm a wimp;)

I thought the aftermath was worse then actual labor/birth, and noone ever warned me for that!! I didn't rest up well though, i was running back and forth to the hospital for a week because she was in NICU @ Children's.

I tore pretty bad, and felt that part, so it was right around when I was pushing his shoulders out that I realllly started making noise! And no one mentioned to me that passing the placenta would hurt, by that time I had no numbness left, and they also didn't numb me for the stitches (gag)

Oh, wow. I didn't feel a thing really.
Just pressure when she was coming out, that's it.
Didn't feel tearing, nothing.

Aw! She is such a doll and still is! (That part with holding her neck was kind of scary, though. D: ) Overall, though, makes me wish I had recorded my delivery! Although they took Felix away and didn't put him on my chest because I had meconium in my water and they wanted to be safe. He actually came out screaming before he was fully out, though, and had 8 and 9 apgar scores. I also shot blood all over the ceiling so maybe it was best it wasn't caught on tape. Or actually...maybe that would have been really cool to have video evidence of. :P
