How long were your Labors?
#1. 12 hours at the hospital - pushed 1 1/2 hours
#2. 2 hours at home, 3hrs 35min. at the hospital - pushed 10 minutes
#3. 1 1/2 at home, 4hrs. 39 min. at the hospital - pushed 20 minutes

How did you know you were in Labor?
#1. seeing spots, called doctor and he said go to the hospital, got settled and they told me my contractions were 5 min. apart and i was 5 centimeters. hummmm..... i had no idea.
#2. had terrible butt pain, was supposed to be induced that morning so they said come on in, started having contractions while getting ready, got settled in a room and they said i was 8 centimeters. ahhhh!!!
#3. woke up at 3:30am having contractions and left for the hospital at 4:3oam. was in a room at 5am and was 6 centimeters.

Where did you deliver?
#1. Southwest General Hospital, Cleveland Ohio - 7 days early
#2. Chesapeake General Hospital, Chesapeake VA - 7 days early
#3. Rex Hospital, Raleigh NC - 3 days late

#1, #2, #3 - YES, YES, YES!!!

PTL for epidurals!!!



Who Delivered?
#1. Dr. Shirley Bennett
#2. Dr. Gregorio Uy
#3. Supposed to be Dr. Henderson but actually ended up being a nurse named Lydia.

It's always amazing to me that we have had our children in 3 different states, 3 different hospitals, and by 3 different Dr.'s; well, actually one nurse. It's all worked out though and each practice was great! :) They'll all be able to claim a different birth place!!! :)
