I have had 10 clients in a row who were silent labourers. There are lots out there. I wasn't one of them smile They mostly went to term.

I did the "Mooing like a cow" variety!!Twas most odd.Under normal circs doubt I could recreate this noise.Saw that prog on homebirthing where the woman had a silent labour.Was most impressed!

My bf Muum was like this with all 3 of hers. She didn't even know she was in labour. BF is hoping she will be the same envy

You are so lucky. I'm hoping that this time round I'll be like that too.

First time, I had severe SPD that put me on crutches and had awful pain from that rather than contractions. Had a induction complete with drip and was given an EPI for the hip pain and high BP. The hip pain was so bad that I couldn't/wouldn't stand up.

I was in transistion (shaking like a leaf and being sick) as they placed the EPI and could only feel the contractions as pressure rather than pain.

Someone I know was induced, went to the loo and got DH to come along as she was feeling a bit shaky. DH had to run for a mw as she had one contraction and baby's head popped out down the loo. Total labour 15mins and most of that was trying to hold baby in whilst moving to the delivery ward rather than deliver in the loo on the antenatal ward.

glad there are other people this may sound funny to some woman as you would like not to feel it but i would like to feel it.

If you look on the yahoo hypnobabies site there are loads of stories of painfree births and I posted a link last week to the american dateline programme showing two women having painfree hypno births. You are not alone.

guess it is easy for us with long painful births to be jealous but am I right to think you find it a bit unnerving? I can imagine. Childbirth is this huge thing and it sounds like it kinda sneaks up on you.

nope, i'm of the 18 hours of pain variety unfortunately.
