PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

56. "Labor Stories"
I can't resist telling mine too since we're here. But before I do I must say as respectfully as possible.. "You're all nuts!"
Why does anyone have natural childbirth in this day and age? We have all of these fabulous wonder drugs, that, if given at the proper time, pose little to no risk to the baby or the mother. Hospitals now-a-days have all kinds of labor options from 'walking epidurals' to water births. There is a competition here in the Dallas hospitals to get the women to pick them. One of them offers a lobster dinner and champagne to the new moms after delivery. I totally agree with AyaK on the dangers of at home births. Congrats on your little one Dave(Thanks for the pictures he's adorable!)

On to my labor story. I started having 'really bad cramps' a month before my due date. My husband didn't have a class until afternoon and I had my biweekly dr's appointment at 10:30 that morning. I told said hubby he didn't have to go and could sleep late. (Can't imagine getting to sleep until 10am nowadays!!) I started getting cramps and figurted these were those Braxton Hicks (false labor)pains. But they started getting really bad so I woke Jason up and asked him to drive me to the doctor. We had a huge fight because he couldn't find his baseball cap and didn't have time to take a shower. My appointments only took about 10 minutes so I told him he could wait in the car. So I get to the doctor and tell the nurse that I want him to check me today. (I felt I might possibly be dilating a little. So the doctor comes in and checks and then says "you're dilated to about 6 or seven you need to get to the hospital now." I burst into tears with pictures of premie babies in incubators and he tells me that the baby is fine. So I run out to the car and tell Jason 'we're having a baby, drive me to the hospital' We have yet another argument in the car about how I shouldn't joke about such things. The look on his face when he realized I was serious was priceless. So we get to the hospital and Jason leaves to go get all of my crap, clean the house, and shower. He was back before it was humanly possible(he went into an alternate dimension I swear!). 3 and a half hours later I had my son. I had two epidurals because the first one didn't take effect and I didn't get the second one until 5 minutes before delivery, so I
got as close as I would ever want to natural childbirth. David ws 6lbs 10 oz and nothing was wrong with him at all. We think they messed up on the due date.

My daughter was easier/harder. I went into labor two months before my due date and was on this horrible drug that stops labor and bedrest for a month. He might as well have put me in an insane asylum. David was 15 mos and not walking and bedrest was not really possible, but I tried . Anyway when he finally took me of the meds I went into labor 24hrs later. It was a four hour labor as well, but I got the yummy drugs faster so it was much easier. The sad thing is that Beth only weighed 5lbs 9ozs and she was 'term'.

I know y'all don't care about this, but , everyone woman wants to brag about her kids. This is what OT is for anyway!
