My Mom's favorite blog, Rock's in My Dryer had a fun thing going on for Monday. I wasn't able to get in on the action until now, so here it goes.
In honor of Labor Day, my labor stories, not in full...you're welcome! ;)
How long were your labors?
#1, 9 hours
#2, 4 1/2 hours
#3, 3 hours 15 minutes
How did you know you were in labor?
#1, my water broke (3 weeks early)
#2, I was almost 2 weeks overdue and finally woke up w/ painful contractions in the middle of the night. A shower didn't slow them down, so I figured it was time.
#3, I was overdue and pretty sure that the contractions I was having were getting serious. I went to bed and was able to sleep through them. When they woke me up, I knew it was time.
Where did you deliver?
#1, Longview Regional
#2, Baptist Memorial (San Antonio)
thank God, no
#1, me, but Dr. Hutchison caught her
#2, me, but Jan, a midwife in the hospital caught her
#3, me, but Shayna, a midwife (in training) at our home caught him
*can you tell that I want the credit?! ;)
Kind of fun FYI. HA, as I read over it, I see a trend. If we have another one, he/she will probably be delivered by Billy in the back yard!!!!! :)
