I had all 3 of mine naturally with no pain killers. My first child was overdue and was induced at 10:30am on November 27,1995 and was born at 2:21pm. No problem. My middle child was born November 12, 2002. I started goin ginto labor early in the day with her and for some reason just kept putting off going to the hospital. I just didn't want to go! My hubby finally forced me to go, and it's a good thing he did, we arrived at 10:35pm and she was born at 11:12pm! My son was hard. I went back and forth to the hospital all weekend and they kept sending me home. I went back Sunday morning at 10:30am and was yelling that something was not right and I was not leaving the hospital until I had my baby. I was a real pain in the hiney, but a mother knows when something is "off". The doctor induced me at 6:30pm and the baby was born at 9:21 with the cord wrapped around his neck and some gastrointestinal issues. They rushed him off and were going to send me to surgery because I wouldn't deliver the afterbirth, when my room cleared out I thought "Like hell are they knocking me out without knowing how my baby is" and delivered what I needed to by myself. My hubby came back in the room and was horrified, the doctor told me I didn't HAVE to act like a cavewoman. After that I decided I was done and had a tubal 2 months later.
