Holy crap that was fast! Shortly after I sent that post contractions started and were getting closer and closer. I got in the tub at 5:45 and it really helped me through the contractions. Suddenly I could tell things were changing. I couldn't breathe through the contractions and I found myself screaming and arching my back involuntariliy. Then all the "I can't do it" talk started. Next thing I knew the contractions pretty much stopped and my body started pushing. Five pushes and he was out! No ring of fire, no screaming. It was incredible!
I feel 1000X better than with my first (epi and pit). I never thought I was capable of trusting my body and having my baby at home!
