Quoting grace life:" That is when I started to panic. They kept telling me to wait to be checked, and I was starting to freak ... [snip!] ... out because I knew I had to push. My body wouldn't stop. They finally checked me and then ran me into the room to deliver him."

Yeah I was squeezing every other muscle in my body for 20 minutes so I wouldn't push. My body ached so bad afterwards. I finally screamed that I was pushing with or without the Doctor.

I had an epidural so labor was pretty much beautiful. I was really emotional though. The doctor pushing on my stomache to get the placenta out now that hurt like holy hell!

I didnt scream or yell, or even cuss out my dh haha. I was a wreck, my epi wore off and i declined to get another "boost' before pushing. The worst was when his head was coming out, but i also had a 4th degree tear and his shoulder ended up getting caught resulting in a fractured clavicle.

YES! Omg that part hurt soooo bad. Labor isn't bad for me, I can take that like a pro, but actually giving birth, hot damn it hurts!

NO ONE warned me about that part... I remember thinking, holy shit, this is the hardest thing i have ever done!
Thankfully my delivery was only 21 minutes long, but I had an episiotomy so it made it a bit faster

With my first kid I didnt know any better. I hadnt taken any labor classes and he was early so I didnt even get the hospital tour. I had no clue what I was doing lol. The nurse apologized afterwards and told me she should have let me push but kind of panicked herself. No one was prepared for him to come as quick as he did! (Labor syarted at 11:45 pm with contractions 2 minutes apart, I was 8 cm at first check at 12:45 am, and delivered at 1:31 am!! Second labor was 36 minutes...)

I didn't scream with the first one but I cried and threw up. Oh and I cussed...a lot. It was natural so it was pretty painful. The contractions were so bad at the end that I couldn't even feel him coming out, because it hurt nowhere near as bad as the contractions. With the 2nd I had my epi before I even felt a contraction (I was already 5cm though) and slept through my entire labor, never feeling anything. But because there was no pain then all of a sudden I started pushing him out, it felt like a mac truck was driving out of my vagina and I screamed. My 3rd was a c-section baby and my 4th is going to be VBAC and now reliving this I'm think.."oh shit". lol

I was quiet...it takes way too much energy to scream when its that intense.
I do it med free so the contractions seem to be the worst...when transitioning starts I'm so focused on whats going on with my body that the pain is kinda pushed to the back of my mind.

I havent screamed for either of my 2 births. (my first birth I was pretty drugged up though). The worst part of actual labor for me was the pressure in my bottom. It made me so self conscious that I was going to poop while walking around or something.



The birth itself the "ring of fire" was pretty bad but once the head was out I felt alot of relief...
