  • 42 hours- and it was HELL. Afterwords my son was in the NICU and my husband had to push me in a wheel chair in order for me to see him. They kept asking me if I had a C-section.... they couldn't understand that I was dead tired.

  • 10 and a half, she was my first. I was in so much pain I pushed harder than I ever thought I could, maybe that's why she came quicker. :)
