did you scream and yell in labor?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I just watched a video and I'm curious. I never did with either of my kids, I was super calm, God only knows how or why...

I also heard a woman screaming the night I gave birth to my first daughter.

I kind of did with my first, I was 18 and did it natural... it hurt soooo bad when they would constantly check me to see if I was at 10 yet. I stuck at 9 1/2 for a long time. But I tried to stay calm for the most part. The 2nd one I was calm and quiet.

 I screamed with my first lol. I was embarrassed!

Yes. And when some idiot came in and told me to stop screaming while I was pushing, I yelled, "don't tell me how to breath!"

Oh yes I did... I wanted to be "put down" towards the end. And it was short too, only just under 5 hours, but it was back labor from the start and I was delusional by the end of it hehe.

Lol...no.  I either go quiet or crack jokes when I'm in extreme pain.

:-) every woman is defferent, maybe it hurt her more. I didn't scream, but only because I was so freaking tired with my first. I was in labor for 2 days.
With my second, I scream at the nurses, because nurses didn't belive me she was comming out.


Quoting OneToughMami:

I was quiet. I heard a woman yelling down the hall and made the comment to the nurse "You know she's just being dramatic"

My first was natural due to being too far for anything at the hospital. I didn't yell but I did tell everyone who said "you can do this" "no shit, I don't have a choice." I wasn't loud but I certainly wasn't the most pleasant person! My other two I was calm, quiet & collected.

Yes, it's called an epidural that didn't take, and one that wore off.
