Labor Day Meme

It's labor day and it's raining and I'm bored. Feel free to do this if you'd like...

How long were your labors?

Holden: Started first contraction at 6 AM and delivered him at 8:42 PM= 14 hours and 42 minutes

Riley: Started first contraction at 9 PM and delivered him at 12:18 PM the next day = 15 hours and 18 minutes

How did you know you were in labor?

The pain and tightening in my abdomen were dead give aways.

Where did you deliver?

A hospital in Eastern NC. I had both of them at the same hospital.


Holden: No, because I was young and stupid and didn't want my baby to get any drugs in his system.

Riley: Yes, because I was older and more tired and knew how much labor hurt. I had an epidural with him, but went through some pretty intense labor for several hours beforehand.


No, for either.

Who delivered?

Holden: Dr. Sandy (Aka: Dr. Easley)

Riley: Dr. Stephenson

(And a bonus question) How long were you pregnant?

Holden: 39 weeks and 5 days. He was due on February 7th and born on February 5th.

Riley: 40 weeks and 1 day. He was due on May 12th (Mother's Day) and was born on May 13th.
