How long were your labors?
#1: 19 hours
#2: scheduled C-section
How did you know you were in labor?
#1: water breaking
#2: what labor?
Where did you deliver?
At a nice, clean hospital with a private room and room service.
Yes, they go with pitocin like peanut butter and jelly. And the police would have been involved if there were no drugs at my c-section.
Complications from #1's delivery made #2's c-section a no brainer.
#1: Mostly my wonderful midwife until my doctor came in with a posse and the big, bad vacuum.
#2: My doctor. Also a nurse whose only job was to count the instruments to make sure nothing was left inside when the surgery was over. It was creepy and reassuring at the same time.
How about you?
