A thing I remember about pain...

I was in labor with Charlie. I was pushing with no medication and the pain was incredible. It seemed like I wasn't getting anywhere and I was afraid to push harder. I looked at Josh, the nurse, and my midwife, and I said, "You guys, this really hurts. I don't think I can do this." My midwife took my hand and put it down to touch the top of Charlie's head. "He's right there," she said. I grabbed a hank of Josh's hair and I pushed with everything I had.
