What time were you born? How long was your mom in labor? How many weeks was your mom when she had you?  Was your name already picked out? What was your name going to be if you were a boy?

I know I was born in the evening. My mom had went to the hospital earlier in the day. She knew it was time but the Dr sent her home. She was home for about 2 ish hours then went back and delivered an hour or 2 later

I don't know. I think I was born early in the morning, sometime around my due date and I was small. Only 5 pounds 12 ounces. I don't know much else.

Lol my mother had a vaginal delivery and claims she doesnt recall any of it. This was almost 43 yrs ago so I guess its possible. I was born about a week late, my name was picked out for both genders, I was gonna be Todd William if I were a boy. I was born at 10:20am at 7#9oz. And my dad wasnt allowed in the delivery room.

I know I was a month or so early, and had to be under the lights for high bilirubin. I don't know the time of day or how long Mom labored.

I was born about 11:30am on a Sunday; I think it was 11:24 to be exact.  My mom said it was a fast labor and the doctor was telling her, "Wait, wait!  I don't have my gloves on!"  or something to that effect, lol.  She must have been 40 weeks as I was born one day after her due date.  I think my name was already picked out.  I was named after my great grandmother on my mom's side and my dad picked out my middle name.  I think my mom once told me that I would have been Steven if a boy.

I was born at 6:13am, c-section. I was born early after a really hard pregnancy. I was 4ish pounds and my lungs weren't ready so they needed to transfer me to another hospital. They were going to name me Rachel or Anne-Deon(wth??) but mom saw another baby in the ward named Amanda so she named me Amanda Deon. The other baby didn't survive. :(
I was in the nicu about two weeks I think.

What time were you born? 1:13 pm

How long was your mom in labor? 15 I think?

How many weeks was your mom when she had you? 38.5 Wks

Was your name already picked out? Two to choose from.... Depending on if I made it to January ( i didn't ) so the December name was picked.

What was your name going to be if you were a boy? John, because every first son in the family is named John.

I was the first girl in three generations .,.. That's a lot of Johns! Hahaha

My firstborn got " John" as his middle name.
( but he goes by initials)

4:36pm mom was In Labor for 12h. She was 39 weeks. My name was picked out due to mom knowing I was a girl.

I was born on a Friday at 2:46am. I was 6lbs 8oz and was 19.5 inches long. According to my uncle my mom was a week early and labored for about 4 hours. I was adopted so I was able to get this info from him.
