Yes, I'm talking "normal" between contractions! That's because childbirth is normal!

With my first- oh boy I'd go OFF on them. I had a complete abruption and had to be put under. I would go off about being pumped full of drugs for no reason, not being allowed to see my daughter for almost a day, and giving her formula and pacifiers. Helped screw up breastfeeding for us...grrrr. I'd have some choice words I'm sure

I'd thank the nurse I had through most of my labor. She was awesome. But my midwife protected me from all of the stupid staff that would have been bothering me.

This but the nurse thought i wasn't having very intense contractions and was shocked ... Yeah because I knew how to relax my body to work through it! Self education!

I'd go off on the doctor who was mad that I declined an epi, called me, "One of THOSE," and wanted to hurry my afterbirth along so started tugging on the cord after I told him specifically not to. I had to yell "NO! STOP!" like you're taught to in self-defense classes when you're being physically ATTACKED. I also had to slap his hands away then later lay there in fear trying to trust that he wouldn't purposely stitch me up too tight out of spite. He did do a stitch wrong and had to do it over again. Fortunately, ds came so fast he missed the birth so he wasn't there to screw THAT up. High five, baby!

I would tell the nurse that she could NOT steal my baby for 4 hours, that my baby needed nursing and skin to skin with momma to warm him up!
