Haha, I was even worse with P. Literally said 'no' to every question they asked me the whole labour, even if I meant yes.

Love the story, thanks for sharing. A tear or two in my eye. But why on earth did they tell you not to yell?

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

Great story :D ! Love all the details! And P's reaction was sooo cute!

I'm confused about why they wanted to break your waters though. I've never heard of that being done as standard. Glad you managed to avoid the antibiotics though. I wanted to refuse that too but I was too scared of going against advice, even though I was fairly certain I wouldn't get them early enough with two previous 4hr labours. Ended up being <1hr, so of course I ended up receiving ABs pointlessly and they just had to monitor the baby for 48 hrs anyway :? . My concern was about the ABs causing food allergies in the baby. Didn't think about thrush.

Love the story :) I really need to stop reading and hearing about new babies and hanging out with pregnant people, I'm waaaay too broody these days.

I never thought to question the water breaking thing. They broke it at the beginning of P's induced labour and it jump-started my labour. I never even thought to research about birthing in the caul...
