On my first quote, I am so happy that my husband and I finally worked everything out. The old stuff on this thread, man, was I in a bad headspace. But, you know, those things pass. And I'm so happy in my relationship now.
Alright. In terms of orgasmic birth, just do a google search. There are lots of theories as to how this happens, but I can tell you that the first 8 hrs -- had a lot of off-and-on orgasms, which was awesome. I mean, it was what it was.
I don't know what creates this outcome, except possibly having the neurology to support it (i.e., high thresholds of pain?) plus also being healthy and, perhaps, relaxed enough to experience it. It might also be helpful if you believe that a pleasurable birth is possible, because I think that holds a lot of people back, honestly, from experiencing it.
The active labor/birth part was a *lot* more intense. Probably the most intense thing I've ever experienced, but it wasn't painful. It was just very active/hard work, and it was very much in the "zone." It felt like about 5 minutes to me, but DH says it was about 2 hrs (which is normal). I enjoyed it, and was exhausted when it was over. And sweaty. I was very sweaty. It was work, though, you know, That's what labor is.

Decided on a change of mind. Started sleeping in nighties, and that has helped my attitude towards feeling sexy. I like how I look in them, and how they are silky and slinky in the bed.
Also went clothes shopping with DD yesterday and tried on clothes for hours. Really love how I am looking in them. I fill things out in a great way. Still want to lose some weight, but I am really happy with where I am right now.
I know it is all in my head, and years of growing up with parents who killed my self esteem. Time to reprogram how I see myself and enjoy my inner sex goddess. Plan to take a few hours each Saturday to try on clothes in different stores and enjoy my body.
Thanks for this 'sexy' thread. Made me really think about how I view myself.
Life is good!
