The other labor days...

Got this from hillsidehollow, but you know I don't call it a "meme" because that's what the kids call my mother!

How long were your labors?
#1: 10 hours
#2: about 12 hours
#3: about 10 hours

How did you know you were in labor?
#1: Woke up in the middle of the night with pains about 10 minutes apart. Woke Mike up to tell him, but then let him go back to sleep. Got up and watched When Harry Met Sally, we headed to the hospital when the sun came up.
#2: I didn't really know if I was in labor or not, most of the day...I was. My mother and "Auntie" were there to be with Jonathan, and Mike and I hung out going for some walks and a ride. It was a record high 98 degrees in March in CT!! We ended up going to the Dr office at around 3pm, he confirmed I was in labor, we headed home to get our stuff and the Dr said he was going to Home Depot then he'd meet us at the hospital.
#3: My water broke...YEAH!

Where did you deliver?
#1: Carolina's Medical Center Charlotte, NC
#2: Danbury Hospital Danbury, CT
#3:Special Beginnings Birth Center Orlando, FL (the best!!)


Who Delivered?
I did!! Do you mean attending physician?
#1. Dr Pixley.
#2. Dr Breaux, but Mike actually caught Madi.
#3. A midwife named Suzanne, but she didn't really need to do much. It was the best, Mike, Jonathan, Madi, my parents, and two great friends were there! Jake's birth was the best day of my life!!!

How about you?

I just posted my "labor day" stories too. I like yours. I didn't know you went to a birthing center. I've heard of S.B. I used a different one.
