I didn't, they told me not to push and I told them to f*ck off and get ready to catch.

My nurse didnt believe i was ready to push and refused to check me
when the doctor finally arrived he told her i'd been ready to push for 45 minutes and fired her on the spot right in front of me.
I laughed super hard and pop came the baby.
really though.

None, the nurses would've delivered LO if the DR didn't get there in time.



When it's time, it's time and there's no way I'm fighting it.



ETA: Your body naturally 'pushes' anyway. It's uncontrollable.

I didn't. I told the nurse I had to push she said no youre only an eight and i told her to effing check again. had one big contraction and baby was out on the bed. He was tiny so I never had to "push"

I got to the hospital at 8 or 9 cm. They checked me into a room and the doctor's office was across the parking lot and we could see him running towards us out the window lol... he got into the room 12 minutes after I got there and 4 minutes after that she was in my arms. I felt the urge for a couple minutes, but he was present when I had the urge.



With my first, I had an epidural after 28 hours of labor and didn't feel an urge at all. I was in labor with her for 32 hours... BIG difference between the two.

He sounds like my old ob. He yelled at my nurse in front of me because instead of cutting my stitch she re-cut me. I think I had to wait a few minutes.

It felt like FOREVER but my nurse told me i couldnt push and she didnt trust me not to and she called me dr.. took her about 10-15 minutes to get there, and my body was pushing the baby out by itself, with my next i wont wait, it was way too painful!

I didn't wait. I had the urge to push so that's what I did. Then almost as. Soon as his head was out the doctor walked through the door lol

Over an hour. It was the best decision I ever made. Eventually there is no fighting the urge

my nurse yelled at me not to push and I ended up ripping during a kegal cause his head forced itself out if I remember right my doc didn't make it just a bunch of nurses running around confused lol
