Labor Day Meme

   Found a meme over at Rocks In My Dryer. Thought I would play along, even though the day is pretty much done, cause my brain can’t come up with anything on my own. Just keepin’ it real.

How long were your labors? 

Lily: 12 hours, but the first 5 nothing much was going on. 
Hannah: 2 hours at the most. She was born 53 min. after we got to the hospital

How did you know you were in labor? 

Lily: water broke 
Hannah: suddenly those fake contractions that I had been having for 20 weeks began to organize themselves

Where did you deliver?



Lily: wanted to go natural. Not sure why. Made it to around 8 centimeters. Then begged for the drugs

Hannah: Begged for the drugs, but labor went to fast. Delivered naturally. Still waiting for my medal.



Who delivered?

Lily: A doctor in my regular doctor’s practice. With forceps. And her leg propped up on the bed while she pulled. Delightful

Hannah: I guess a doctor. The lovely nurses kept telling me not to push until the doctor got there. He walked in and over to introduce himself. It went something like this. “Hi, I’m Dr…whoa…(grabbed gloves and caught baby).”

Feel free to play along. Let me know in the comments so I can read about your pain joy.
