I got this off of Ashley's blog, and thought it was fun. Play along if you want!
How long were your labors?
Russell: 12.5 hours
Aubrey: 11 hrs.
Bethany: 10 hours
How did you know you were in labor?
Russell: My water broke and I had to call my mom to take me to the hospital. It was great, I loved it that she was the one to take me to the hospital. It is a memory I will cherish forever.
Aubrey: It was 2 days before Hurricane Rita was scheduled to hit HOUSTON and I was eight days past due, so Titi (my midwife) "helped" me a little and I was in labor instantly.
Bethany: Well, after almost three months of contractions, and "modified" activity, a false labor that went on for TWELVE hours, I was "helped" out again almost a week after her due date because she was having heart decelerations.
Where did you deliver?
Russell: Texas Women's w/ a Dr.
Aubrey & Bethany - St. Luke's in Med Center with the Midwives. I love the midwives, they are awesome!!!!!
Nope. I am one of those weird ones that actually likes labor...yes it hurts, but doesn't life sometimes?
Russell - a real nice Dr. who was there for the 10 minutes of pushing, and then gone. I think her name was Theresa Robinson..I've seen her in magazines.
Aubrey - Theodorah DeFrancesca one of the most amazing midwives ever!!! Aubrey's birth was AMAZING!
Bethany - Titi Otluna another one of the most amazing midwives ever!!! Bethany's birth was peaceful and calm, I really didn't have much pain, only pressure, until it was time to push. Notice the difference in my facial expression after Bethany compared to Aubrey...much easier labor with Bethany.
