Labor meme

I saw this posted on a couple of friends blogs, so I thought I would fill it in too. I know I’m late to do this, (this was posted on labor day, Sept. 1)  but it was still fun! It was first posted by Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer

How long were your labors?

How did you know you were in labor?

  1. My two deliveries were so completely different, it is amazing to me still. Our first baby weighed 8lb 9oz and yet labor and delivery was only 10 hours and not too bad. Everything progressed as it should and we were blessed with a beautiful son. Our daughter was an entirely different story. She was much smaller at 7lb 1oz, but labor went on for over 24 hours and was so much more painful. She was an undiagnosed breech and born feet first(ouch!). I had no drugs with either delivery. I had 72 stitches as opposed to the 3 or 4 I had the first time. It was definitely a delivery to remember and my last. I was not able to have more children after our precious daughter was born. We are just thankful for the blessings we have and know it is all in the Lord's will.:)
    Thanks for sharing your births with us!

  2. I had fun doing it. One day I must write out our first 3 births. 🙂 Shelby, I will have to check out your blog and see if you posted your birth story yet….. 🙂

I love hearing from you!!
