    Praying, singing the periodic table song, singing alphabet song and rocking on all fours.

    Being on all 4's leaning over the raised bed head. Swinging my hips from side to side. Listening to the radio and focusing on what was being sung.

    Standing and swaying with the shower on HOT pointed at my lower back and groaning like an animal

    Oh and big breath in and slow out, and making low humming sounds during a contraction.

    Last time, I didn't even notice I was in transition. I got off the bed, waddled to the shower, turned it on, started pushing! The first time I just wanted everyone to go away, and I didn't hear anything anyone said to me, then the pushing urge overtook!

    I had my little freakout "I can't do this, I want to go home, I don't want a baby anymore" but I had my mum and hubby there telling me it was ok and I was doing it and it was nearly over, I settled down and was ready to go again :-)
