BTDTs, if you used the tub during labor did you have DH/SO in with you? Did it help? Would you like to this time? Why or why not?
FTMs, do you plan to use the tub during labor (I HIGHLY recommend it). Are you going to have DH/SO in with you?
I had a thought last night that I really want DH to be sitting behind me in the tub, rubbing my shoulders or my arms or just stroking my hair. So I told DH we needed to grab him a pair of swim trunks for the hospital bag and I told him why and he seemed to be on board.
I wasn't able to use it the tub for long with M and DH wasn't in there with me. I ended up getting the epidural long before I would have wanted so this time I really want to get more use out of that big warm, weightless, jetted, magical place... the ultimate goal is med free.
Just curious what everyone's plan is :)
