When you were in labor, did you post updates to FB?

My dd's cousin is posting hourly updates while in labor. Her last post: "Dialated to a 9. Getting ready to start pushing.".

The last thing in the world I was thinking of while in labor was FB. LOL What about you?

  • No way! That is the weirdest thing. I don't think I had FB when I was in labor with DS though. I was way more concerned with getting him out than I was with letting everyone know how it was going.

  • That's really funny.
    And no. Then again there was no FB when I was in labor - all 3 times.

  • No- considering there weren't even computers in homes much then let alone FB!

    If it were today and I were having a kid...NO- I'd post that I'd gone to the hospital maybe and after it was all over- but to give updates on how it's TOO much info
    I also would never allow anyone to record any part of it either- I mean seriously, WHO would ever want to watch such a thing...ugh

  • Facebook didn't exist, and cell phones weren't allowed in hospital rooms.

  • No- I was too busy visiting with my family (had all the kids there) and preparing them for new arrival.
    The 13 yo made the first post about and hour after baby was born.

    Like the other PPs with the first 3 kids there was no FB and phone restrictions

  • I don't think there even was Facebook yet when I had my kids, but I know I didn't have Facebook. And I didn't update anyone. I called my mom when I realized I was in labor (her and my dad lived an hour and a half away, so they needed time to get to us), told my then-husband when he got home, and bitched at the woman at the hospital, but that was it with my oldest. lol With my youngest, he ended up a scheduled c-section because he was breech, and I told everyone who needed/wanted to know when it was scheduled for, and my parents let them all know after it was over that he was fine and healthy and I was in agony but fine. lol
