    Default Re: How did you cope with the transition phase?

    I crossed my legs Dp had to help the midwife convince me that wouldn't work. A few minutes later ds1 arrived.

    Ds2 came very quickly but I remember being on my back and moving to all fours, kind of leaning my hands on the bed head. Rocking back and forth helped.

    I had no pain relief throughout my daughters labour. I lay very quietly and still and focused on breathing through contractions relaxing my entire body, picturing my cervix opening, and chanting (in my head not out loud) to myself that it's just a muscle doing it's job, my baby is coming.

    When transition came, I did everything exactly the same, but the chanting in my head changed to "THIS F'ing HURTS BUT IT'S TOO LATE NOW, JUST SUCK IT UP SHE'S NEARLY HERE".

    Lol to the outside world I was absolutely no different whatsoever during transition, but I can tell you now, my head was mad at me. hehe

    Default How did you cope with the transition phase?

    Counting and staring at a spot on the wall/floor. I also had a major freak out that I couldn't do it (push) and that I would be the most useless mum in the world and was it too late to change my mind lol.
    But counting really helped me, something simple and repetitive I think works best so ABC I'm sure would work just as well. Periodic table a little out of my depth lol

    I didn't really recognise I was going through transition, but I would have been in the shower with the hot water on my back. Just before pushing, when things were getting pretty tough (would have been transition but didn't know it), I found myself in a little trance-like state watching the water gurgle down the drain and swaying through contractions.

    Oh transition was horrible, how I coped? Screamed a lot, couldn't help it, it didn't last long though, I was squatting and pushed through it. The midwife was trying to stop me but my body was just doing it.

    I was vocal, lots of loud Ahhhing and calm breathing/affirmations between contractions.

    Lots of screaming and talking to the midwife in a baby voice hhahha! DH had to tell me about that one. It was really hard to focus on pushing at the right time but eventually I was able to control myself. Mind over matter

    Everyone is different, you just kind of do what comes natural. Child birth is very primal, groaning and moaning worked for me....not that I could help doing it though lol
