In honor of "Labor" Day!!

Labor Day Meme

Just for fun, I copied Renee & Bethany's blogs . In honor of Labor Day, it's about...well, labor. And not the kind you get a day off for, either.

How long were your labors?
I was in labor with Haley for what seemed like forever. My water broke at 4am and I was due to be induced at 6am. I finally had her after 4 nurses were on my stomach with legs & elbows pushing her out lol. In all it was @ 17 hrs..

Kassidy was really fast & easy. I went in to be induced at 5am and had her at
12:15am. So it was 7hrs..(not bad compared to Haley lol)

Lacey came really fast as well, almost before the dr. could get there to catch her. I was induced yet again at 5am and she was born at 10:10am. I only pushed 1 time and she was out. So I was in labor with her for only 5 hrs.(my labors just kept getting shorter with each pregnancy!!)

How did you know you were in labor?
With Haley I was taking a bath to get ready to go to the hospital to be induced when I stepped out and my water broke. Chris thought my bladder was leaking but OH I knew that wasn't it lol.

Kassidy I was induced with 5 days early so she wouldn't be born on Christmas lol.

Lacey~~I went into labor with her at 27 weeks & then again at 35 weeks. Both times the contrations were HORRIBLE~~~~~~~~~~ Finally at 37 weeks he decided to induce me because I was dilated to a 5 and had been for a week. I was afraid I would step to big and she would just fall out lol..

Where did you deliver?
Haley was delivered at Willis-Knighton South in a the labor & delivery unit.
Kassidy & Lacey were delivered at Willis-Knighton Pierremontin the labor & delivery unit. All 3 were in Shreveport,LA~~

I had an epidural with all 3. That is definitely how God intended for us to have kids~PAIN FREE!!!


Who delivered?
Haley ~~ Dr. Paula Rembert (she was amazing and Haley was the last baby she delivered) :(

Kassidy & Lacey were delivered by Dr.Chris Gayle (he is wonderful and we are so thankful for him)

Ok that was a nice trip down memory lane lol~~
