Where were you born?

My parents lived in a really really small town until I was 9. The closest hospital was 30-45 mins away. Which is where me, all of my siblings and one of my daughters were born. When people ask what city I was born in I always tell them were the hospital was located but it always seams weird saying the name of a city I've never actually lived in.

That's not weird. A lot of people are born in a different town than where they live. Dd was born in Springfield, IL. We have never lived there.

Honolulu, Hi. Dad was in the Navy and stationed in Guam. Hawaii was as close as my mom could get.

That's really common here, most people go to the "big city" an hour away or they'll go to one of two smaller towns 30-40 miles away.

Hell, if I have another child I'll be moving in with my mom close to my due date and delivering in her town and she lives almost 3 hours away.

That's not too weird. Anyone who lived in a town without a hospital was born in a different city, unless they were born at home!

If the van is in one town and your mom and you got checked out at a hospital in a neighboring town would which town would your birth records say you were born in?
