    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.

    My second labour and birth was a breeze compared to the first. It still hurt, but I felt much more in control of the situation and I think that helped to keep me calm and focused.

    Mine were very different.

    DD1 was fine, right until my OB broke my waters and the pain went from 4/10 to 8/10 in the space of one cx. I then got stuck on monitoring as there was meconium. Pretty soon after that I got an epidural.

    DD2 was much faster (6.5hrs instead o dd1's 16hrs). My cx progressed gradually and using the TENS and JuJu Sundin's book, I got through with no pain relief. I then started feeling really nauseous and asked for Maxalon. In hindsight I think this was transition. Soon after my waters broke (spontaneously) and then I needed to push!!!
