Not what I expected

It has been three and a half months since I gave birth. But I still think about my birth story. I was in labor for 24 hours without any pain medication. I stalled at 5cm, but i stuck through it. When I was 8cm dilated, 100% effaced, my sons heart rate went up really high so they said they were going to give me oxygen. When I finally gave birth to him, I was so excited for his father to cut the cord. But when I looked at him, his face was purple, he looked so scared. Is it selfish of me to hold that against him? I also wanted to cloth diaper from the day he was born, but the nurses did not let me! Next time I am definitely having a home birth, no matter what anyone says.
