  • I had the mirror. I had to ask for it. No one asked my to touch it though, I just wanted to see it come out.

  • I NEVER wanted to see that. LOL. My LP knows the whole idea of watching myself give birth freaks me out, so with our third baby he jokingly took the mirror they had in the corner of the room and faced it toward me while I was in labor...and we both forgot about it until I was delivering and could see myself the whole time. Jerk!

  • Yes, there was a mirror with my 2nd and 3rd, but it was hard to see and I was too busy pushing to pay attention. I do remember that when my first baby was emerging that the Doctor said "Look, here's your baby" and had her hand wave at me while she was coming out. LOL. I was so excited!
