  • Nope. My mother did not discuss anything of that personal a nature. That is why I had absolutely no idea what was happening to me when I got pregnant the first time.

    She told me all about somebody else giving birth, but not her.

  • If you shared with her, the birth of your children, do you think she was open up?

  • Nope. She was there for the birth of my children, so she knows those stories.

    She would not talk about it, it is not "proper".

  • Nope, and sorry I don't want to hear it. But my MIL sure does like to share DH's birth story often enough.

  • Yes, as much as was possible.
    I was born in a time where women were occasionally still over-drugged like the Twilight Birthers of the era prior.

  • Yes, but I think she greatly exaggerated most of it (based on what other people who were present told me).

  • Yep. My mother loves to tell the tale... She always starts with my father's Dick VanDyke actand ends with me. She was also there for the birth of both of my boys.

  • Yes, to some degree. I know where she was when she went into labor with me, how long the labor was, that it was a natural birth, but the details, not really.
