I must be a wimp, as I took gas and air all 4 times, and screamed with the first and third babies. I can't remember if I screamed with the second as I was drugged up with pethidine, and I know I was okay with the fourth, just groaned (and he was 10lb 3oz). There is no point in me reading your book, as I'm finished having babies! A relaxed frame of mind does help, as I was definately more relaxed with my fourth, and it didn't really feel too sore.

I screamed - very loudly But by the time I got to hospital I had already been in active labour for almost 17 hours - little did I know I still had another 8 hours to go And I will take every drug known to man if I get offered it this time round xx
Never heard of it to be honest!! Bring on the gas and air and pethidine Fin was induced and i had him on gas and air and one jab of pethidine same with Erin but she was back to back and agony, far worse than Fin. But i never screamed once, just a lot of iya iya iyas and a couple of f swear words when they were crowning! I got told by my mum that to scream is to waste your energy which you will need later.
