    :oops: Here again with another silly question,this one about delivering the placenta.....what does it feel like,is there any pain,does it take long,or does it just squish all up and literally "fall out" and you don't feel a thing??
    Quite daft,but I really would like to know!!

    Oh yes please someone answer this question. I also would like to know. You see a lot of programme about giving birth but once baby is out thats it you dont see or here about the after birth bit.

    I have to be honest, I can only vaguely remember the placenta being delivered! :shock:

    After over 25 hours of active labour and 2 hours of pushing, I didn't give a shite about anything else!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

    I had the injection and I barely felt it come out to be honest! Can't eaxactly describe it, but the best I can say is a blob of jelly coming out of your vagina :shock: strange but not unpleasant really and it didn't hurt. All I had to do was give a little push, and baring in mind I had no energy from labour it was a little push!! :lol:

    Dont know if it's different if you don't have the injection.

    Can't remember if i had the injection or not either time but remember having to give a couple of pushes and it came out, was uncomfortable but not painful.

    I had the injection and the midwife pulled out the placenta - No effort required on my part. It looked rather like a boat being pulled in. It was a bit uncomfortable, but not really painful as it's quite squidgy....Just weird....

    I remember I continued to have contractions (but nothing like the real ones in labour) felt a bit of tugging ect, but I wasnt really paying attention to it because I had my little one in my arms and at that point thats all yuo care about! I dont remember feeling it come out.

    To be honest you are that busy cooing over your baby you are not interested in dlivering the placenta, 90% of the time they pull it out so you done have to really take part in that bit!! lol

    yes, I will echo what has been said: got the injection, still had some contraction, but nothing compared to labour ones, and while I was talking to DH and cuddling with Maheen, I felt something hot and gluey coming out, a bit like when Maheen came out...mind you, my placenta was HUGE!!! so for me as well, it was a nice feeling, like I am finally free and empty. They did not ask me to push, they just pull it gently, did not feel a thing... and it came out 7 minutes after the injection!

    i had the jab after having my previous two deliveries and dont remember being asked to push it out??!!! think i was too absorbed in my beautiful babies, i vagley remember something warm like jelly coming out but they took them away before i could see, hubby said it looked like liver lol eerrr :? sounds sick but i would actually like to see it this time to see the very part of me that connected to my little bambino and kept him/her alive, infact i was only just saying the other day to hubby that i wouldnt mind cutting the cord myself but then i though do i really want to cut my baby away from me?? what are your thoughts, at least if hubby cuts the cord then he is greeting baby into his arms hhmmm dunno ive confused myself again lol
    sorry ladies i do waffle on sometimes :oops:

    I had the injection but they told me to give one more push and I demanded gas and air! The MW and my Mum said- you don't need it honest, but I just wanted more of that great stuff so frankly I was too busy enjoying the gas and air to notice or remember anything about it!
