I already posted today, but then I came across this meme on We Are THAT Family. Kristen made me laugh as she always does. So, I decided to jump in. Besides what else do I have to do today! If you want to participate head over to Rocks in My Dryer and link up!
How Long Were You in Labor?
Child #1- 3 hours 13 minutes
Child #2- 3 hours 34 minutes
Child #3- 3 hours
Child #4- 4 hours 14 minutes
How Did You Know You Were In Labor?
Child #1- I went in for my weekly appointment and I was dilated to 5! My doctor wanted to know how long I had been in labor. I said, "What? I haven't been in labor!"
Child #2- I was induced, because I live an hour away from the hospital and was afraid that I wouldn't make it because I had had my first so quickly.
Child#3- I went in for my weekly appointment and I was dilated to 3. The story repeats itself here.
Child#4- Went in for weekly non-stress test because of a umbilical cord that wasn't typical. Baby was showing signs of stress so I was induced.
Where Did You Deliver?
All in the safety of the hospital.
Yes, except for child #3, but I was begging for them. I had asked the nurse not to give me any because I wanted to go natural. However, I was pleading with her about 3/4 of the way through! I didn't have an epidural with any of them though and that was my main goal.
With child #1 almost the nurse! The doctor was lolly-gagging around because I was a 1st timer. No way does a 1st timer deliver in just over 3 hours!
