In honor of Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day, I’m sharing the hardest work I’ve ever done!
How long were your labors?
Kid #1, 15 hours
Kid #2, 8 hours
How did you know you were in labor?
Kid #1, 3 weeks early, contractions all night.
Kid #2, 1.5 week early, contractions all night plus early morning already-scheduled doctor's appointment.
Where did you deliver?
In the safety and security of the hospital, of course.
Drugs?
Yes, as soon as they would possibly let me have them.
C-section?
Nope.  Although there was the possibility of that with baby #2 when his heart rate dropped from 140 to 40.
Who delivered?
Kid #1- My wonderful OB/GYN, who no longer delivers babies. 
Kid #2- Another OB that a friend was working for - good doctor, not good bedside manner.
How about you? What are your numbers?
[Did you adopt? (how long did you wait?) Not a mom yet (how long were your mom's numbers)?]

I got this directly from Kristen at We are THAT family.  Go check out her numbers.
