Reading through the other thread I couldn't help remember my own labour, where I didn't really feel the urge to push.
I stalled for a while at 8cm, then they gave me the oxytocin drip. I guess not long after that I must've fully dilated because the midwife told me to "try pushing", but I had no idea what I was supposed to be pushing, or from where!
I finally figured it out, and it ended up taking over an hour to push DS out with all my strength. I still don't remember getting that "overwhelming urge" that I hear so many women talk about though.
I had gas, and morphine towards the end, but no epidural. It was a pretty standard delivery I'd say?
Hm, so anyone else had the same?
