    I wanted to run out of the birthing room but my hubby grabbed me and made me look into his eyes then got me breathing in time to his counting. Staying focussed on something helped me..and lots of groaning like an animal.

    I needed to keep moving and swaying and stomping my feet. They passed me the gas but I threw it away then the midwife passed it back saying just try it, it will help to which I politely told her to eff off! Haha
    I also kept going to sit on the toilet unaware of what was actually happening

    I always know I'm in transition because I throw up and then the pushing starts. When I throw up we know its going to be out in five minutes.

    Screaming 'no no no no' and having DH and the midwife talking to me calmly. I spent the whole labour kneeling over the head of the bed so that didn't change with transition. It didn't last long though.

    I couldn't stay still but couldn't move either. I just didnt know what to do! The midwife had just checked me and I was 8cm and she kept telling me I had hours to go yet, so I was trying to convince her that DS was coming NOW. Sure enough I was holding him 10 mins later. Transition was haaard!

    I know when I hit transition I felt this overwhelming sense that I couldn't go on anymore. I told my doula I thought I needed an epidural and she just told me that it was normal to feel like that and encouraged me back into the shower... I found being in the dark with no noise definitely helped me 'go within' to get through transition.

    I panicked with dd1, screamed, lost control, I remember screaming 'somebody please help me!', losing control does not help.

    With dd2, I was calm, relaxed. But very vocal, a grunting, groaning, primal noise, that I cannot replicate at all now. Also, I was strapped to monitors but refused to lie on that bed, so was on my knees by the bed, the pressure of the contractions at transition kinda pushed me down. That movement helped me too.

    Try to stay calm, listen to your body and do what feels right for you.

    I started crying 'I don't want to I don't want toooo' LOL. By that stage I was kneeling beside the bed and was gripping a pillow extremely tight! I had a bit of gas but found it distracting. I guess in the end you just kind of buckle down and do it. You don't have much choice!
