Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day, and participating with Rocks In My Dryer, here's a fun meme about.....labor! You don't get a day off from this kind of labor, but it definitely produces the best results! Happy Labor Day!

How long were your labors?
Daughter - 3 hours
Little Son - 3 weeks (if you count pre-term labor, which I was in for 3 damn weeks that they held him off from being born!)

How did you know you were in labor?
Daughter - water broke at home
Little Son - called doctor one evening at 32 weeks because I was having a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions - got to the hospital and was in full labor, dilated 5 cm. They slowed it down (never really stopped it completely) and held him off for 3 weeks.

Where did you deliver?
Both at the same hospital.

Drugs?
Abso-damn-lutely! Epidurals for both - aaaaaaah!

C-section?
Nope.

Who delivered?
Daughter - the ob/gyn I worked for - he took great care of me!
Little Son - the ob/gyn that took over when my doc moved to Virginia - also a great guy!

I've been wracking my brain. For the life of me, I have no idea how long my labors lasted. I know they were longer than 3 hours but shorter than 3 weeks.

This was a fun meme. I did it too.

Hope you had a great labor day. I don't like to remember mine! Twins!
