I borrowed this from Rocks in My Dryer. In the spirit of Labor Day, let's talk about the real labor!
How long were your labors?
Kid #1, 14 hrs (not true labor, sporadic contractions due to bleeding)
Kid #2, 3 hours
How did you know you were in labor?
Kid #1, never went into true labor, bleeding due to placenta previa
Kid #2, water breaking.
Where did you deliver?
A hospital, or what I would call a baby factory for the 2nd one, busiest birthing hospital in the metro Atlanta area.
C-section with both, both general anesthesia due to severe anemia. If I had a epidural, I would have hemorrhaged in my spine and been paralyzed
Yes, both times. Could not have a VBAC due to previously mentioned anemia
Doctors, The first was the chief of OB who was called in due to the severity of all my problems. The 2nd was a Dr. from the practice I went to.
