    My mommy who was tall and skinny and usually ate like a bird, said she "hovered a table of sweets" while in labor and "vomited like a volcano" during and after my birth. She went through a lot to make me and to raise me. No one would have faulted her for giving up, but she never did.

    My first was something close to an emergency c-section. High drama, rushing, terror, tears. Poohead is still my challenging one, but also my most sensitive and loving.

    Second was easy peasy, scheduled and standard. And turned out to be a wonderful, kind and delightfully and peacefully standard child. :)

    Some ppl probably think they're gross or boring, but I love birth stories.

    Share. :mad:

    Our first came after she was in labor for 48 hours. Then a spinal, then a c section. Poor thing, it was rough just to watch, she's a lot tougher than me.

    Actually, I may have been an accident to my Dad and an "accident" to my Mom.

    Ugh. Hard labor followed by a c-section is the worst possible scenario. Women are amazing. :wub:

    Yep, our daughter was then a scheduled C and quite the opposite.

    My Mum had to have c-sections with me and my brother so I was told to expect to be like my Mum.

    I was in labour for 36 1/2 hours (hubby timed it, I was too sick to give a shit) Because I had such a high fever, my baby's lungs were filling up with fluid. I had no idea, but the doctor told my hubby. Right after he was born, the doctor held him up and I could actually see his feet turning blue and the blue working it's way up his body. The doctor calmly told my hubby to push the button above my head. When he did, a crash team who had been waiting outside the door rushed in and took my son and started working on him. I was freaking out! They quickly showed him to me (he was pink again) and said he had to go to neonatal where he stayed for two days. Scary shit. He was born on my hubby's birthday just like I was born on my Dad's birthday.

    My second was only about 24 hours of labour and beside being born face down, he was perfect.

    My third was only 12 hours, exactly on his due date, and there was nothing dramatic ....until he turned 2. That's when the fun began with that little (6'3) brat.

    Trigger warning: racial and ethnic stereotyping coming...

    My first anesthesiologist was Chinese. That guy got the big needle into back in seconds. But couldn't have cared less if I vomited on the table or how much pain I was in after the procedure. The spinal wasn't supposed to wear off for a while, but I was in some degree of pain an hr after.

    Second anesthesiologist, a Jew - took him FOREVER to get the needle in. I was seriously worried he didn't know what he was doing. He was so hesitant. But he made sure I had strong anti nausea medication and drugged me up GOOD after. Kept saying "There's no reason for you to be in pain. You tell me if you feel anything!" Not only was I pain free, but high as a kite. I almost proposed marriage. Dr. WhateverStein is the best. :wub:

    It was horrible, but I thank the doctor for not telling me. I don't know how I would have reacted.

    Only did it once...and with an epidural ended up sleeping through most of the labor.
    I kind of had an adverse reaction to the shot. It knocked me out cold, felt zero contractions other than the beginning.

    They had to wake me to start pushing. And yes it still hurt like hell with the epidural.
    But against my doctor's orders to stop pushing, I wanted it done fast....he was out in ten minutes.

    .....And I needed stitches. Listen to the doc when he says stop pushing!!

    I was super premature. My dad could hold me in one hand. Incubator, some story about a needle in my head....the whole 9.

    I was also one of the first confirmed cases of Kawasaki disease in the country. Doctors came from all over to poke and prod me. They had no idea what was wrong with me.

    My mother died during my birth. The birthmark on the side of my head then became inflamed and formed into the number 666.

    I was the ugliest baby ever for about 72 hours. Three feet long and a face that looked way too much like Edward G Robinson. They even had the world's ugliest nurse hold me for my baby picture.

    Once my Mom fattened me up I was cute as a button. :)

    I think that is true of most babies.

    Yeah. I think so. I think it can cause heart issues long term but I'm 40 now and never had any problems.
