In Honor of Labor day..

In honor of Labor Day and in participation with Rocks in My Dryer cuz it looks like fun, here is the best work I've ever done:

How long were your labors? (first contrax to delivery)

Kid #1 -26 long hours
Kid #2 -10 hours
Kid #3 - 13 hours (I thought they always got shorter?)

How did you know you were in labor?
Kid #1- uhmm contactions? lol.. Pain??

Kid #2 - induced

Kid #3 - induced

Where did you deliver?
At the hospital .. #1 & 2 were delivered in the same hospital room a little over 2yrs apart :) #3 was in a different state that I've never even lived in.. lol

Yes please !:) Epidural both times.

Thank goodness NO! Although I was threatened with it with all 3 pregnancies :( Bullies!

Who delivered?
Kid #1- A dr I'd never met. We had a midwife (AirForce only had midwives at the time and weren't allowed to get drs off base-- stupid) but the kid refused to come out.. So I was told to QUIT pushing (after already pushing for 4 hours) and rest until the dr on call got there to use the vacuum. 3 attempts with vacuum and she finally came out- cone head and all :)

Kid #2- OB! Yeah! AirForce finally let us go off base for drs :) Much better experience ! (not that I have anything against midwives- I just didn't like the one I had to use lol!)

Kid #3- A sweet OB who actually listened to me when I told her how my body always stalled for several hours at 6cm. She went to take a nap until I was ready :)

And I'd do it all over again :)
