Just for fun, I thought I'd pull out this meme I found on Rocks in My Dryer. In honor of Labor Day, it's about...well, labor. And not the kind you get a day off for, either.
How long were your labors?
Kid #1, 10 hoursKid #5, 1.5 hours
Kid #2, 8 hours
Kid #3, 8 hours.
Kid #4, 1.5 hours.
Kid #6, 12 hours
Kid #6 was trying to make sure I never did it again. She did not succeed
How did you know you were in labor?
Kid #1, Plug came out, contractions startedKid #5, water breaking
Kid #2, Contractions
Kid #3, Contractions
Kid #4, water breaking.
Kid #6, false water breaking, huge scare
Where did you deliver?
With all of them, at a hospital.
Kid #1, EpiduralKid #5, Nothing
Kid #2, Demoral
Kid #3, Demoral
Kid #4, Nothing
Kid #6, Epidural
Yes, #1 was a C-section, all the others VBACs. #6 tried to be a C-section, she's a fussy one!
All of them were delivered by doctors, though some of them almost came too quickly.
If you want to play along with this meme, just cut and paste the questions into your own blog, and leave a link with Rocks In My Dryer.
