Never in my life did I think I would say this, but I feel like I missed out on the experience of labour because mine was so short. I was initially so terrified my fear of the labour was extreme to say the least (panick attacks, the works!). In the end I was only in labour for 4/5 hours, just had mild contractions right up until 30mins before my son's arrival when suddenly I needed to push! I had a pretty good time up until then and just so sad it didn't last longer. By the time the baby's dad got there I was pushing, I never got to use my birthing ball, or go watch tv, phone family and friends to say it was happening, get the epidural, nothing. Can't stop wishing I'd had time to appreciate what I was going through, if I'd known I was progressing quickly I would have made the most of it but I was 2cm when they examined me, thought I had days, but it was all over as quickly as it had begun. Sound insane? Also does this mean whenI have babies in the future they will be short labours or could I still have a long one?
