Childbirth Meme

I found a meme over at Rocks In My Dryer. Thought I would play along.

How long were your labors?
#1: Premature, they tried to stop it, then start it, whatever.....16 hours.
#2: 7 hours
#3: Uh....maybe 5?
#4: Um.....maybe 5?
#5: Well! Uh hum, complications with this one but 18 hours.

How did you know you were in labor?
#1: Food poisoning, water broke six weeks early
#2: Contractions, one day early
#3: Contractions
#4: Water broke
#5: Schedule inducement early due to my Brest Cancer and beginning chemo in 6 days

Where did you deliver?
Hospital for all of them! Definitely! Yes!

Epidural for all of them. Swore each time I'd never do it again did every time. Almost killed me with Ki. Too much medicine went up instead of down, "numbing" my heart and lungs.

Nope. Never. Only one stitch with the first!

#1: 6-13
#2: 8-3
#3: 8-8
#4: 9-15
#5: 6-12

Who delivered?
#1: An absolutely WONDERFUL female doctor!!!!!
#2: A different doctor. Oh My!!!! OUCH! Window in the WRONG spot!
#3: Stupid doctor wouldn't come!! Head already half way by the time she got there.
#4: Some on call doctor, nice huh!
#5: The numbscule who didn't believe that little lump was a problem.

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

  3. Hi I found your blog through the Labor Day Meme. Congratulations on beating breast cancer!!! I am confused though, because your bio/ picture show 6 kids and there were only 5 stories?
