***It's generally pretty quiet around the blogosphere on holidays. Just for fun, I thought I'd pull out this meme (chain letter) I found. 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?
Lily: Not really sure. I got to the hospital about 6 hrs. before she came, but I labored at my brothers house (long story) and at the mall, for a long time and was too stubborn to go to the hospital right away. I tend to do that with my babies.
Maggie: 2 hrs.
***Read my mom's comment (Julie Marler). She explains my labors with a lot more detail!!!!
How did you know you were in labor?
Lily: STRONG contractions and I was over-due. When I got to the hospital, I was 6cm.
Maggie: Little contractions and a lot of pressure. When I finally decided it was time, we went to the hospital, and I was already 8cm.
Where did you deliver?
With both of them, at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands. Where the drugs are.
See above. Goodnight nurse, YES!!!
Nope. They both came really quickly with only a couple of pushes.
Well, my AMAZING nurse/ dear friend, Linda, was there with me through most of it. Then, my WONDERFUL doc, whom I love dearly, showed up just in time for the catch! He came even though he wasn't on call. I was so blessed to have them and my WHOLE family in the room with both deliveries. Need an OB, nurse, or an "adopted" family? :)
We'll see how Mr. Cash makes his appearance, come Dec.
***If you want to play along with this meme, just cut and paste the questions into your own blog and leave a comment so we can all read about your laborious day(s).
