    I didn't push at all with my third, but then I was standing, so that helped!! It was such an easy birth! Felt great after, no sore and swollen bits!

    They sure didn't tell me that, one side didn't work at all and then the other side wore off so quickly it was like I had never been given anything. What a waste of a needle in the spine!

    And by "not work" it can be anything from a small window that you can feel pain in, one side not working, not taking the pain away at all, wearing off too quickly etc.

    Because of what happened with the Vag labour, they gave me a spinal block for my c.sections and it worked. Thank god - I can't imagine how terrifying it must have been for you!

    I wasn't going to bother with one, but I was induced over 3 days and by that point hadn't slept in 65 hours, I also had the ARM since the day before, so I had full on contractions every 90 secs. I ended up not being able to push anymore anyway due to exhaustion so had a ventouse. The whole thing was awful and I was told later,that I was supposed to have a c/section if two attempts of inducement failed, I had 6, I was also forgotten about during the labour I had a Ob tell me that they would have to do an emergency c/sect in 10 minutes because baby was in distress, then I never saw her or anyone again for hours. Gah. And because bubs got distressed from the inducement meds he came out not breathing and had to be resusuced. Very scary. 68 hours it took all up.

    That the smell of a newborn is the most beautiful, intoxicating smell there ever is or was. They could bottle that stuff and use it for a room freshener.

    This! And you don't even realize the smell is there until someone else picks bub up and bub smells like them! I hated it when DS smelt like someone else's perfume in the first week because that baby smell goes so quickly!

    Well of course obviously i knew what the alternative was.. But the point is that it .didnt take away the shock horror embarassment factor the first and second time the nurse came in......i wish i had of been told beforehand. You hear all about " not caring " during the birth but trust me by that point i was caring!!! In hindsight it seemed obvious but prior... No idea!

    How you forget what labour was like until it starts again. Not looking forward to tonight!
