had a home water birth four months ago.  I woke up at 7am cuz I was having back pain and couldn't sleep. My husband was gone and the contractions wouldn't go away. (I was having contractions on and off the whole week so I didn't think much of it) so I called my husband (who was two hours away) and he had his mom come over to see if she thought I was in labor, which I was. Contractions really were not that bad. I was able to talk through them. At 7pm we filled up the birth pool and my midwife showed up at 9pm, she checked me and i was 8cm. When transition came,  thats when contrantions got pretty intense and I could no longer talk when I was having one. I pushed for an hour. I gave birth to my daughter on hands and knees in the pool, at 12:11am July 16th.  She was 8.13 and 20.5 in. The worst part for me was the burn when her head was crowning. Squattingduring contractions helps so much! I lost my mucus plug that day and ny water didn't brake until her head was about to crown. I was so ccalm there was no stress. I loved it. Yeah it hurt a little but it was not horrible.  I never screamed or cried and I have a low pain tolerance. I did tear but it wasn't deep, I still needed stitches though cuz it was long.

Don't be afraid babe n_n

I gave birth 3 weeks ago. Was cramping and leaking something that wasn't fluid, went to my 39w appointment, and she checked my cervix. I was 2cm and 100% effaced.
An hour later I was in labor (5 pm)
Stayed in a hot bath until my fiance got home from work at 10pm.
Went to the hospital and labored in the tub there until about 3am.
Got out and started pushing for 45 minutes, without a drop of any medicine. My fiance rubbing my lower back through every contraction helped me get through them.
He arrived at 4:14am November 7th.
I had no tares or anything, and I thank the tub for that!
I instantly felt better after birth. I was up walking around and showering and all.
Good luck!
