Rocks In My Dryer is hosting a meme and in honor of Labor Day, it's all about labor. To play along, hop on over to Rocks In My Dryer and leave your link.

Here are my answers:

How long were your labors?

Kid #1, not sure. Delivered 3 hours after being admitted to the hospital.
Kid #2, not sure. Delivered 4 hours after being admitted to the hospital.

How did you know you were in labor?

Kid #1, water leaking
Kid #2, water leaking

Where did you deliver?

At the hospital for both.


Not really. For #1, I was tapped for the epidural, but bag was never hung. Water broke after tap and I delivered within 30 minutes. For #2, decided #1 wasn't so bad, why bother.



Who delivered?

Kid #1 - The doctor who I had seen least during pregnancy from the three doctor practice.
Kid #2 - A covering doctor, the two doctors, from my now two doctor practice, were both out of town.

I recently posted the birth stories here.
