I finally got brave enough to watch Fiona’s birth video, and I’m glad I did. It gave me a better idea of some of the timeline (like, for instance, I actually only pushed for about 5 minutes this time around!) and made me realize that I wasn’t as loud as I thought, except right at the very end. I spent a lot of the time chatting with the midwives and Kris and was surprisingly “with it”, considering how I felt at the time.
I spent most of today editing a video. Originally it was supposed to be a pregnancy, birth, and beyond video, set to music with no dialogue. But it got long and I liked a lot of the dialogue, so this is just a birth video. I might change the first dialogue box eventually. The midwives didn’t actually show up until about 10:20, and the first clip of the video is only about 25 minutes before the baby comes, just to give an idea of how quickly it went. I’m going to work on another one that would be more along my original idea too, and will be a little more censored. This particular one has nudity, yelling, etc. Watch at your own risk.
