^This for pushing. And I then focused on FIGHTING the stupid thing that felt like they were trying to smother me to death with and then the Dr finally got there and baby boy #3 was out in minutes. Don't arrive at the hospital at 9cm at 6 AM if you don't want to freak out some nurses.

For transition, riding in the car for about 25 minutes and keeping focused on NOT making your DH wreak works OK...but I don't want to try it again.
