My son Ryden was born 5 weeks early on July 30th. He weighed 5pounds 5 ounces. I didn't even push. He was so tiny he pushed himself out. He was 5 weeks early and spent the next two weeks in the NICU at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. He couldn't breath or maintain his temperature.

My daughter Kaeleigh was born July 17, 2008 at 8:36pm. She was 5lbs. 6oz. and 18 1/2 in long. My water broke at 4:30am, the contractions started around 10am, I arrived at the hospital around 12pm, received the epidural around 2pm and I pushed 2 1/2 pushes (about 10 minutes) and she came right out at 8:36pm. Caused a third degree tear, but it really wasn't that bad, it healed really quickly and surprisingly didn't bother me too much. The labor and delivery staff were really surprised at how well it went for being my first! Hopefully any subsequent deliveries will be just as smooth and easy (minus the tear) :)

My first and only child, Dalia, was born on July 21st 2008. She was 7lbs .03oz and 21in long. She was born at 11:55 pm after being in labor since about 5 pm. I pushed for about 30 mins and out she came. I did have an epideral when I was about 7cm, I couldn't handle the pain anymore. So glad I got it because I felt like I was really able to enjoy the rest of the birth. Seeing my daughter for the first time and having my hubby there with me is one of the most precious moments I've ever had!

marcus was 1lb12 at birth and was the size of a coke bottle, maybe a little longer. he was born at new cross hospital in wolverhampton. i started having pains on the tuesday, waters broke on the thursday and i had him at 00.55 on the saturday morning, although he was so small it was a hard birth, i was told any bigger and i'd have had to have a c-section due to teh position he was in. it took an hour of pushing to get him out.

Rachel was born at Valley Medical Center on July 18, 2008 at 11:20 am. I had an 11 hour 20 minute labor, labored at home from midnight until 8am then went to the hospital and was 8cm on arrival. Labored for 20 more minutes and then pushed for a hour and a half (water broke when she came out). She was 8 lbs 3.4 oz and was 20 inches long.
Naomi was born April 22, 2010 @ approximately 5:20 am in our car in a 76 gas station parking lot where my husband pulled over at when he was finally convinced that the baby was coming OUT! Lol! The labor was 2 hours and 20 minutes. Contractions went from being sporadic at 5, 4, 6 minutes apart to being 30 seconds to a minute apart instantly. When we left the house I was definitely doubting we'd make it (45 minute drive-lol!) while my husband said he didn't really think I'd deliver until he saw the head coming out-lol! Once again the water broke when Naomi came out. She was 8 lbs 1 oz and was 19.75 inches long. :-)

Our daughter, Madeline, was born on July 17, 2008 at 2:58 pm in Georgia. I was induced on the evening of the 16th, was in labor for 18 hours and still didn't progress past 6 cm. Every time they tried to up my pitocin, baby's heart rate dropped dramatically and eventually had to have an emergency c-section when her heart rate dropped below 50. All is well now and she's a beautiful, happy, talkative and energetic almost 2-year old.

Our daughter was born in Kentville, NS on July 24, 2008 at 9:56am after them inducing me. They began the induction at 8am gave me the epidural at 830am broke my water at 845am and I was fully dialated by 905. Began pushing then but her heart rate went from 164bpm down to 46bpm so they had to put the vacuum on her head and pull her out. She weighed in at 9lbs 9oz and was 21.5" long. My other children were born in 7 hrs weighed 9lbs5 ... 3 hrs weighed 9lbs3 ..... and our angel was born in an hour and weighed only 1lb 11 oz...RIP my angel.
