Laborious Labor Meme ~ Happy Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day, Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer posted a meme about - what else? - labor, of course! Here are my answers.

How long were your labors?

Alli ~ 45 hours

Cami ~ 25 - 30 hours can't remember exactly

How did you know you were in labor?

Alli ~ I went into early labor at 32 weeks. We were able to stop it with major drugs that I still have nightmares about the effects. After 3 or 4 days, I begged the dr to please send me home (I hate hospitals). They agreed & gave me a pill to take to stop the labor. After 1 week on the pills, my heart was beating to quick to stay on them. The night I stopped taking them, the contractions started up almost immediately. This was a Sunday night, the waited till Tuesday early afternoon to finally break my water & I delivered 45 minutes later.

Cami ~ I started having painful contractions at 5 months. With my history with my first, they watched me closely. Once I made it to 34 weeks, they told me every day after that was a bonus & they wouldn't prevent delivery. My contractions became 10 minutes apart right around 35 weeks, so I had to go in. She was another one, they waited on the water breaking, when they finally did it, I had her about 45 minutes later.

Where did you deliver?

At the same hospital with both.


I was given some mild ones in my IV with both because they were making me wait to actually deliver, trying to give both girls more time to develop lungs, etc.


Nope, I didn't want it & thankfully did need. Now that I know you can get a tummy tuck at the same time, I want that, lol.

Who delivered?

I honestly cannot remember either doctor that delivered that my girls. Both times was some different & not my main doctor.

Happy Labor day to everyone!
