How much did your children weigh at birth? When were they due vs when they were born? How long were you in labor? Vaginal or cesarean?

Here's mine:

Baby #1 - girl due October 21, 2007, born on October 25, 2007 weighing 7lbs 4oz delivered vaginally, labor lasted 12hrs
Baby #2 - boy due June 13, 2009, born on June 13, 2009 weighing 8lbs 7.3oz delivered vaginally, labor lasted 9hrs
Baby #3 - boy due August 8, 2011, born on August 8, 2011 weighing 7lbs 11oz delivered vaginally, labor lasted 21hrs

Yes, both of my boys were born on their due dates, no I was not induced, I went into labor on my own. I also was born on my due date. I think it's kinda neat :) They told me with my third not to labor at home because it would go quickly because he was my third... only it lasted as long as my first and second combined! Lol

#1 was due May 15, 2008. He was born May 11, 2008 (Mother's Day that year!). My water broke naturally, but I wasn't having contractions. I was 3 cm dilated and given Pitocin. I had an epidural. 12 hours from the time my water broke until the time he was born. 45 minutes of pushing. He was born at 11:12 PM weighing 7lb 15oz. 

#2 was due June 22, 2010. She was born June 17, 2010. I wanted to have her on Father's Day (which was June 20 that year), but at my checkup June 17 my blood pressure was very high (I had pre-e and was already on 2 BP medications). I was already 6 cm dilated (not having contractions), so we induced. The doctor broke my water and contractions began immediately. No pitocin, no epidural. 8 hours of labor with less than 5 minutes of pushing. She was born at 11:19 PM weighing 8lb 15oz.

I can't remember her exact due date but she was like 2-3 weeks early. She was born Friday, June 15th at 10:54am. They checked me into the hospital Thursday night with plans to induce Friday morning (bc my blood pressure sky rocketed after having great blood pressure pre pregnancy and during) and my water broke on it's own at midnight Friday. He was 6lbs 3oz and 19 1/4 inches long. Natural vaginal birth. No meds or epidural.
