Default Let's talk about your labor and delivery...

Watching A Baby Story, some of the real parts of labor I'd forgotten are all coming back to me....


1) How long were you in labor?
2)Did you have pitocin?
3) Did you get an epidural?
4) How long did you push?
5) Did your baby have a conehead?
6) Did you cry? Did your SO cry?
7) Did your SO cut the cord?
8) Who was in the room with you?

1) How long were you in labor? 16 hours total with Marek, 6 hours total with Lukas
2)Did you have pitocin? No
3) Did you get an epidural? Yes with Marek. No time with Lukas.
4) How long did you push? 45 minutes with Marek, not at all with Lukas (in fact, the nurse was holding him in hoping the doctor would get there in time).
5) Did your baby have a conehead? Yep, both of them.
6) Did you cry? Did your SO cry? Funny thing is, I cry when I see a birth on TV, but I didn't cry when either of my own kids were born. I was just really really happy and excited.
7) Did your SO cut the cord? That big chicken? Heck no!
8) Who was in the room with you? With Marek, just dh, the doctor, and our friend who is a labor & delivery nurse. With Lukas, just dh, our nurse friend, and our friend's daughter (when we called her to tell her we were headed to the hospital, she asked if her daughter could come and watch).

6) Did you cry? Did your SO cry? DS-no, DD1-a little, DD2-a little DH did not cry
7) Did your SO cut the cord? no, I kinda wish he would have, but he doesn't like that kinda thing
