First bub nearly 9 pound. Induced with a grilling 16 hr labour. Ended up having epidural as the pain was unbearable.
Second bub nearly 8 pound. Natural labour for only 5 hrs. Most of which I did at home pacing, cleaning trying to stay mobile in the house. I enjoyed the labour although it was painful. Not as bad as first bub though. I got into hospital with contractions at 2.5 mins apart. 1hr later and with no pain relief, I had my bub. After he was born I couldn't wipe the smile off my face due to the fact that I'd just gone through the entire process with me in total control. I now fully understand it. It's such an intense and rewarding thing to go through. I'd do it again but 2 children are enough for me.
