Ok, Im actually 'stealing' this from the status thing that has been going around on facebook.

What are your kids name, when/time they were born, (if you can remember - weight/height) and delivery (vag/c-section/vbac), drugs or no drugs - and length of labor/delivery.

I will start it off:

Cephira~'sef-er-a' (girl), 8, Feb. 1st, 6:30pm; all naturale' vag birth, with no pain meds - labor/delivery was 13 1/2 hours

Isaiah (boy), 7, April 20th, 5:15pm, over 14 hours labor - then e-c-section (cord wrapped around neck); IV drugs, and then general anesth. (i was in severe pain and just wanted to be knocked out!)

Jebediah (boy) 5, Nov. 3rd; 6:30am; 5 hours labor/delivery - VBAC, with epidural

Lilyiah~'lil-ee-a' (girl) 4, April 13; 12 noon; 9 1/2 hours labor/delivery, epidural VBAC

Azeriah~'a-zer-i-ah' (boy) 2, Sept. 13; 6:30am; 8 hours labor/delivery, VBAC no paid meds

Nehemiah~'knee-a-my-a' (boy) 1, April 1st; Went into labor at 3:30 am - he had us fooled of whether i was even going to birth him that day or not! as i was in labor and didnt deliver him til almost 9:30pm - obviously 18 hours of labor was super long for me, compared to my other kids -- but I had him VBAC with no drugs

Currently prego with number 7, due in August, having a girl - super excited! Not saying names though, lol

I cannot remember everyone's exact weight/heights - four of them were right under 7 pounds, two of them were 5 and 5 1/2 pounds - and they were all between 18 to 20 inches in length.

Your turn!

Eric Ryan, 2years, Tuesday April 7 2009 at 4:30am,

8lbs 22.5inches, 40 hour labor,

no drugs till 32 hours, then epidural born vaginally

Fierna Juliet, one week overdue as of today! Hopefully will be born at home, vaginally with no option of drugs. And hopefully a short labor but honestly at this point I'll take any labor just to get it going!

Ethan William born 12th Oct 2009 at 5.11pm. He weighed 5lb 6.5oz, he wasn't measured, I don't think they routinely measure length in the UK any more.

I was induced at 37 weeks due to my Pre-e and had a 45 minute labour (labour started when they broke my waters), I only used the gas and air for pain relief and had a vaginal delivery. I'm hoping that this next labour will be slightly longer (maybe an hour and half) so I can get to the hospital - I don't want a car park baby :-)

Samuel, August 14, 2009; 7lb 11 oz, 20 inches, 1:15am., induced with pitocin, had epidural and episiotomy, vaginal birth, from the time my water broke to the time he was born: 40 hours. (Only 6 hours of "hard" labour, though.)

Erin - posted on 05/07/2011




Wyatt Robert, born October 4, 2007. He was 8 lbs 7 oz, 22 inches long. Born at 12:43pm via c-section. I was having high blood pressure the last 3 weeks so they took him one week early plus he was breech. At first I had an epidural but 5 minutes before the section I could still feel everything so I ended up with a spinal block. I am hoping the next one (if I am lucky to ever have another, Wyatt is my miracle baby. Took 2 years to get him :o)) will be a VBAC, I have always wanted to have a waterbirth.

Gas is Nitrous Oxide. It's the first option for pain relief in Aus.
And yeah Stephanie, you did lol.

[deleted account]

Emma- What is the gas? I don't think we have that in America.

Erin- I think I earned my 2nd labor haha!

Logan Damian, 28/1/10 0140AM 4015g (8 pounds 13 oz) 52cm Vaginal delivery, just the gas, 26 hours from start to finish

Ava Katharine Isabella, 4 years old, 5 lbs. 10 oz., 10th pregnancy / 1st live birth, born vaginally after 44 hours of labor, 30 of which was bone crushing, balls to the wall hard labor, no epidural. I did take one dose of Stadol (can you blame me???) which I immediately regretted bc it made me delerious and I couldn't remember where those damn pains were coming from lol. With every contraction for the next hour, until it wore off, I was like "Ahhh, what the hell is that!!!". Crazy stuff! I can't believe they feed that poison to preg women. ; )

Joseph Jadyn Andreas, 3 years old, 6lbs. 5 oz., 2 weeks premature, born vaginally after a 3 hour was technically a little longer but it was 3 hours from the time I realize it was 'real' labor and not the false labor I'd been having for days until he was born. I was 8.5 cm when we made it to the hospital....this labor totally made up for the 44 hour labor I had with my first! : )

I've lost 10 pregnancies, one of which was Jadyn's twin.

Matthew Jay Sebastian, born Feb. 11 2005; 4 pounds 13 ounces 17.5 inches

Induced at 36 weeks due to onset of kidney failure & pre-eclampsia

Born vaginally

I had to leave parent-teacher conferences in order to report to the hopsital where they had me hooked up to stupid machines for 24 hours. I was a bad patient and bitched complained.

Backstory on his birth-My sister gave birth 6 months before I did and we shared the same OB. Her kidney failure started at 37 weeks and had to have an emergency c-section. So that's why the doctor wanted to do the vaginal delivery for me-avoid a c-section. Sister is currently on dialysis.

I don't remember lengths. But all were vaginally.
