I really wish I would have tried a home birth with my 5th.

I also wish when I found out that I had a stillborn I would have waited to go into labor naturally, an not had an induction. At the time I couldn't mentally stand waiting. I hemorrhaged from the method of inductions...and live with a lot of what ifs.

I wish I had labored a little quieter.  I was definitely a screamer (no pain meds).

 I'm so sorry.  That sounds traumatic.  Also my biggest fear.

Ok, that's interesting. The ones that I delivered without pain meds, i "thought" I screamed and acted horrible. I apologized for acting so horrible and he looked at me like I was nuts and says I was silent and didn't make noises at all???? Seriously could that be in my head? Lol! He swears.

As traumatic as it was, I wouldn't change it, if it meant not having had him at all. I just wish I had made a more informed delivery option. At the time it felt so rushed, like I needed to have closure...but waiting it out would have probably given more closure.

Oh man, that's not right. If you were crying they should have taken the cue! Shame on them!

yea you would think! i said it felt like a drill (pulling) and they're like oh it's just tugging we arent using any tools like that and shrugged it off. toward the very end they offered medicine, i'm like no just finish. ugh.
