    OK, Funny stuff...
    Bella- was actually concieved at WDW...Our little souviner. (nothing dirty or illegeal, just a full 7 day vacation)
    she was the total 2 weeks late, and they had to induce me.
    Since I was in a "Training Hospital", I closed my eyes to push, and when I opened them, there were 20 people in the room. I had an audience!
    They told us we were allowed to take everything but the linens, so my husband walks out with the water pitcher, a whole bag full of gauze...EVERYTHING!!!

    Eli- was concieved on my birthday, since it was the only night I wasn't working for about a week and a half.
    Bella and Eli are 4 days shy of 13 months apart. Definately a suprise!
    I woke up in labor at 2 a.m. on my due date. After having my membrane stripped that afternoon, walking the mall for 2 hours, and trying the "seduction induction." I was tired of being pregnant, I'd been pregnant for 2 years!
    I tell Zach I'm in labor, he rolls over and says Its probably just false labor, go back to sleep!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!
    So while I'm in labor, I pack my bag, pack bellas bag, get her dressed to go over my friend's house, WHILE HE SLEEPS!!!!
    Since I'm in labor, I'm starving, but the hospital staff brings my husband a breakfast tray, which he eats, in front of me.
    According to my husband, that was the best coffee he's ever tasted.

    At 38 weeks my water broke, which no one believed me until they saw the water all over the floor. I stoped at Wendy's on the way to the hospital for a burger, frys, and a pop. When I got to the hospital I was only 2 12 cm along. They gave me IV meds and knocked my butt out. When it wore off I was given potocin. I labored for 23 1/2 hours and then pushed for 2 1/2 hours his head was coming out, but it was WAY too big for me. So I was rushed off for a c-section. I totally feel like I was left out of my labor having a c-section. Christopher was
    8 lbs. 4 oz 21 1/2 inches long. He came out with no hair, and still doesn't really have much, being almost 2 now. Chris was born July 29, 2003.

    Well, I'm going to tell it anyway.

    My daughters birth was relatively normal. Except for the fact that neither I nor my wife knew she was in labor. I was only 20 at the time (she was 22). Like sunnygirl, MUCH too young to have a baby.

    She had had a couple of false alarms, but we still went to the hospital because she had pre-eclamsia (sp?). Well, turns out what we thought was heart burn was a baby. And she was born 10 hours later.

    The funniest part came the next day when we tried to change the diaper. We were so clueless it wasn't even funny. Well, it was, and is now that we look back on it.

    For our Son it was much different. Normal pregnancy, no issues, we were told he was going to be HUGE.

    Well, she goes into labor, but then stopped. So they decided to induce the next day.

    Next day comes around, they induce at 10am. By 12 (noon) she is getting ready. We had some friends there and some other friends were coming to say hi.

    This is how fast it went people.

    Our friends left the room when she was going to star pushing. They walked to the elevator to meet our other friends, and then back to the outside of the room. This is maybe a 100 yard round trip that took maybe 3 or 4 minutes. When they came back, our son was out and crying.

    I couldn't believe it. It was funny.
    Aww, thanks for sharing your story. In keeping with your wife's experience, I have heard that the second one is almost always easier than the first. But I'll take your word for it!

    I went into labor at the miniature golf course on a Friday night. I won't give the excruciating details, but late the following Monday afternoon, I had a 10lb 2 oz baby girl. No C-Section but oh, how I loved the anasthesiologist! I was much too young to have a child (16) and it was a thoroughly miserable experience. 10 years later, still no sign of even the inclination to have another. I love my Jr. Sunnygirl, but wow, that was rough.

    Bailey was a 32 hour labor! 32 hours! I went in for my weekly checkup..they did an examine and told me I was at 1cm...Bailey wasn't due for 2 weeks...I knew I could walk around like that forever. Got back to work and started having pains. Called the office to let them know..pains were 6-7 mins...went to dinner (it was hubby's birthday)..pains are about 5 mins...went to hospital around 8:00pm...still at a 1...after walking around the hospital God knows how many times...we got sent home! Come back when you can't stand it!

    At home, sleep was a joke! I was in serious pain! Crying..miserable. But pissed off because they sent me home! So about 5:00am, we get up, get dressed, get in the car. Wait! I still dont' want to go to the hospital. I made my husband drive around town for an hour before I let him take me. We get to the hospital, I'm in tears. Check me..I'm only at a freakin 2cm!

    Pitocin, pitocin, pitocin! EVIL EVIL EVIL!!!! Demerol was all I had for pain!

    Around 3pm, we started to push. Pushed for an hour! NOTHING! OH, wait, your swelling really bad, so let's STOP! More Demerol...drug induced haze..blacking out...an hour later...more pushing...pushing...pushing! 3 hours later! He's born! I have no idea how..I was so physically exhausted! Spent several days in the hospital because I was so completely drained!
    He was perfectly normal!

    KAT - was a week late..and not showing any signs of coming out! We induced the week before Christmas! (No way was I going to risk spending Christmas delivering a baby!)..No epidural! More Pitocin! Stadol is your friend! Labor was a breeze! 5 hours! Pushed 3 times! More Stadol after delivery! Did I mention how nice Stadol is!

    Her delivery was such a great experience!

    Pregnant at DL

    I have to admit I skimmed most of the posts. I do want you to know that one time when I was at DL, my wife was 2 months pregnant with our first. She was "sick" and lets just say it was a new experience for me at DL. I tried to help, but there wasn't anything I could do. :confused:

    My daughters births were relativly easy. Number one was an 8 hour labor down side she was under stress and lifted her shoulder on the way out and has erbis palsey but at 24 she has compentated, even pitched softball tucked her glove under her arm and could get it back on fast enough to catch a line drive at her face ...thank god!
    The second was a planned c section due to her sister having erbis palsey..when i questioned the hi your prego you will have a c section they said dont worry your husband will be there and can come in...that was all well until the epidural went up instead of down ( the oral surgen could have done anything needed) so out I went . I was so heavily drugged I had to ask 3x'x if i had a boy or girl.
    My daughter ugh... she swears she was in labor for 4 weeks at the very least.
    she was in and out of hospital with false labor and being good grammie that I am I went from no ca to so ca 3x in 10 days.At 32 weeks I was with her at the hospital and the baby calculated in at 4 1/2 to 5 lbs and since they had previously given her meds to stop labor they werent going to give her anymore after this round.
    then she made her regular visit at 37 weeks and the Dr told her she was dialiated and effaced and it was her lucky day and go over to the hospital , so once again we are in the car heading to La, opps no after walking the hall ways for 6hrs labor stopped. So one hotel room and a 2 day visit later we head home again. So next the Dr tells her to come in and he will induce . be there at 8 am , no problem. So we go the next week and are going to be there for the big event. Her Dr is no where to be found and the floor ob is like no I dont think you are ready , but hey I will induce but maybe the baby is too small and it can be a problem ...but hey you guys make the call ...and here is a social worker to talk to...omg I cant tell her what to do what if the baby is too small or under developed ( even though by this time she has had the steroid shots for fetal development) shes of course in tears since she doent want to make the wrong the decision, she is shy 3 days of the 38 week mark , the fathers granddad is a retired obgyn in texas even he dosent want to make the decision , so we leave without a baby, and with a very unhappy prego person, so back to no ca we go.
    It took me 24 hours to hunt down her regular obgyn through Kaiser and hes like huh?she didnt have the baby? I am like no. So he says come in friday I will induce ( shes still having regular contractions and dialited to 5) I said are you going to be there ? the other dr made us all feel like awful people, he said he would be there no problem he was only ob and could not get called into er like the last time. We sent back on the friday , so here we are in the car again, she checked in he put her on pictocin and finally had to break her water to get things moving, I thought we had plenty of time...wrong ..they broke her water at 3 ish ,she deliverd at 6:45 I was on hwy 99 just beyond Fresno. I cant belive they let cell phones in delivery she called me at 6:55 to tell me my grandson had arrived !!!
    Next call was at the bottom of the Grapevine about 8:30 , if you dont get here by 10 they wont let you in. I have never been on such a ride to get to Kaiser west la before 10 we arrived at 10, thank god they let us in or I would have killed someone. I figure the trips to LA cost us near 1000.00 with gas food and lodging but its like the mastercard commercial ..PRICELESS.

    Hey! Guess what I learned on my birthday. When I was born I was quite late (not sure on the specifics) and they had to use forecepts. That's all I know. Adoption leaves things like this wide open even if you have connections its odd to be so specific.

    The Boy was a 10# breech, only I was told 3 days before that he was 7#s and ready to go. I was to have been induced on Thursday morning. By Friday afternnon I had had enough of the hospital telling me they didn't have an open room that I finally asked if my water was broken would they have a room? They made the mistake of telling me yes. After proving a few wives tales true, my water broke as I was getting out of the bathtub.

    I ate dinner, 'cause they said in those birthing classes we should eat if we could. Then the Dr came in to induce. It was a different Dr than my OB (thank God!), and he did the exam and began to panic. Things happened very fast after that. I went into shock, shaking, crying, ect... The person giving me the saddle block was yelling at me for eating when my nurse told her to back off, that it was an emergency and that I had no idea I was going to be having surgery.

    The only pain I really had was getting in and out of the hospital bed kept pulling my staples. Since I was doing good they didn't make me stay 48 hours, I was out in less than 36.

    The Boy came out big, and won't stop growing. My 8 yr old is now up past my chin and in the middle of another growth spurt.

    Well, with my first baby labor started w/ my water breaking at midnight. My husband had said, "Don't have the baby during finals week", so I did. :lol: She was 10 days early. It wasn't terribly long for a 1st baby; not quite 16 hours, but I thought I would die! I wasn't given the option of an epidural..wasn't done much in 1990, I guess. She was 7lbs/11oz.
    Baby #2 started gradually, 9 days after her due date, w/ contractions and losing my plug (yummy). I did have an epidural this time--loved it! Took 12 hours. Also 7lbs/11oz. I pushed for 30 min. w/ both girls.
    Baby #3, a boy, was helped along. My midwife was going on vacation about the time of his due date and I really wanted her to deliver so she stripped the membranes (ouch), 12 days ahead of schedule. I think it was about 18 hours of slowly progressing labor and 1 hour of pushing. I highly recommend letting things start on their own! He was, however, quite healthy and good sized 8lbs/4oz.
    I had a baby girl born at 22 weeks who had many birth defects. As you can imagine, that sucked. I really wanted another baby so....
    Baby #4(5?) was another son! Knowing how my previous labors were none to fast, I was in no hurry to get to the hospital, even at 12 days overdue. Labor pains began at 5am. I was able to go about my business in between them: took, a bath, shaved my legs, made some phone calls. At 7:15am the contractions started knocking me off my feet! Hubby woke the other kids, fed them (do they REALLY need to eat! I'm thinking) We got in the car at 7:55am and I was dying by then. Threw up my cereal in the car (had a bowl) and used some colorful language, I'm told. We had a 30min. drive ahead of us in commuter traffic on I-80. On the Causeway, heading toward Davis, my water broke. Suddenly I started pushing, quite involuntarily! "Don't push!" He's saying. Chya! My mom was meeting us at the hospital and by the time we were pulling into the parking lot, she saw us, saw the look on my face (she's had 8 kids after all!) and mouthed "Uh oh".
    Well, long story short (too late!), he was born IN THE FRONT SEAT OF OUR MINIVAN. Born at 8:30am, about 5 min. after we stopped. He was 9lbs.even. His middle name is Van!

    I AM SOOOOO DONE HAVING BABIES!!!

    When I went in for the external version with Brian, the nurse gave me my first ever IV. I was screaming the pain was so bad. I had remembered the stories of my brother being in the hospital when we were young. He hated IVs. So that I was in such pain with the needle was not a surprise to me.

    The nurse stopped trying after a few mintues, then said "You are a real wimp about pain. If you can't stand this, I don't see how you are going to survive child birth". She gave me a few minutes to compose myself. Nathan realized when she waslked out of the room that she had been trying to insert the IV needle on top of the nerve I had been having problems with in my wrist for the last half of my pregnancy.

    When the nurse came back in, I told her what we had figured out and that she she be a bit more sensitive in the future. And I had survived the pain of migraines with only extra strength tylenol to help with the pain. Who was she calling a wimp.
