For my second pregnancy I had a paracervical block and it was amazing.

I'm pretty speedy in the delivery roomand this was just enough to get me though. And I was up and walking not long after.

For my third time around I had no choice, with twins I had to have an epidural. Max (twin A) was head down and ready to go, but Miss Rebecca was breech and needed to be turned after she kicked her brother out. Fortunately there was plenty of room after Max left and I did not have the double joy of both a vaginal and cesarean delivery.

Congratulations!!! Good on you (as the Aussies say) for toughing it out. You rock!

And your new daughter is just gorgeous. I can't say I'm not jealous. Just a little.

Thankfully, I've got my Daniel for now! Babies are so, so sweet =-}

She is beautiful...and kudos for going natural. However, reading this made me call and confirm that my epidural will be standing by when I arrive at the hospital. LOL

Transition is THE worst time, but it also is the signal that it's almost over. I went completely natural with my 4th, and I agree, the recovery was much quicker and easier, and she was so alert! I did a lot of moaning and yelling though. I'm sure the nurses prefer those epidurals just to keep us quiet! lol
