I was already in the pool for about 25 minutes before my husband started recording. working through a contraction I actually let out a scream! I surprised myself and proceeded to cover my mouth! pushing through a contraction I was telling my midwife I was in a lot of pain she reassured me it was because the baby was so close She told me my baby had a full head of beautiful hair My contractions were hard, but in between my contractions I was able to relax as the pain completely went away my contractions went on for another 5 minutes during this time, I was thinking about holding my baby I was wondering what she would look like would she be healthy? My labor was soooo different than my first and this worried me. I was overwhelmed with emotions, fears and anticipation! My contractions continued for another 4 minutes There were points where I felt scared My mid wife and my husband were great at encouraging me to stay positive and strong. That’s her head! I was in so much pain, but at this point I knew we were close! Every time I would have a contraction my abs would get very hard Even though I was only in the water for 30 minutes It felt like a lot longer. 1 minute would pass, but to me it felt like 10 my time perception was sooo messed up! The water really helped me manage my pain. It was nice to be able to move around freely. although I really didn’t move around too much once the baby was crowning if you would like to see the baby being born skip to minute 6:30 in the video , that’s my last contraction!!!
