Labor Day???

Stolen yet again from Wade's World, and in honor of labor day ..

How long were your labors?
Lily Anne - about 6 hours with 3 pushes I think.   I know I was told to stop and wait after the first practice push..
Olivia: 31/2 hours with just a few pushes.
How did you know you were in labor?
Lily Anne:  I was induced 5 days early.   My choice.   I was dialated almost to 4cm and I wanted her out!   But when I checked in that night...I was already in labor on my own.   So no drugs other than the epi!
Olivia: It was a normal day.   I got up for a am walk, played with Lily Anne, took a evening (not normal), talked sykpe with my mom, put LA to bed.  Mich started a bubble bath for me, it was going to Mother's Day.   I felt horrible in the tub so I got out.   Crawled in bed and felt hungry at cereal started having contractions and 31/2 hours later we had Olivia.. 
Where did you deliver?
In a hospital bed. Like a normal person.
Umm...Epidurals are the best things ever!!  Lily Anne I got it pretty quick after I got checked in (around 4-5cm).   With Olivia...i got it within 15 minutes of arriving...I was almost 8cm!
So blessed to not have.
Who delivered?
Lily Anne - Dr. Pridgen.   He is my OB...and he is the best and so sweet..
Olivia: Dr. Hollman.   She was great and on call while Dr. Pridgen was out of town.
How about you? What are your numbers?
