Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??

Do you mind if I ask - did you every feel the urge to push? Like vomit in reverse? Or were you just pushing because you were 10cm? Next time I'd recommend pushing ONLY when your body is helping without you actually having to strain your muscles. At the start that may have been the problem (I'm guessing) but after that it may have been a mental blockage or your body may have went into fear mode - aka, the more determined you were to get the baby out, the less that was happening. So sorry mama, I hope you have a better experience next time!
