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.
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.
