Mommy Tag

Curren the pipsqueak
Jessie Bug

mommy tag.......

I found this on Jackie's blog, it's fitting since my kid's are having their birthdays this week!

How did you know you were pregnant? With Curren, I smelled a can of tuna fish and ran for the bathroom... that's how I knew with him, with Jessie, I think I knew within a few weeks of being pregnant, and was in denial until I got the pregnancy test.

How old were you? With Curren I was 20, and Jessie I was 21.
Was it planned? Curren was for sure, Jessie wasn't really, but couldn't change it :D
What foods did you crave? Taco Bell Burritos!
Any morning sickness? Yes, I was sick for about 4 months into the pregnancy with both of them, but it did go away after that.
Who was your doctor? Curren, well I can't remember his name (does that make me a bad person?) and Jessie it is Dr. Warhus.
Did you find out the sex? Yes
Due date? Curren April 21st, Jessie I think was around April 19th


Were you induced? Curren: I re-arranged our bedroom because i had that nesting bug we all get :) And my water brok that night, with Jessie I was induced 2 weeks before her due date.
Where did you start labor? I had slight contractions with Curren as we went in, and with Jessie in the hospital.
How long were you in labor? Curren about 4 hours, Jessie about 5.
How long did you push? With Curren I had the epidural, so I couldn't tell I was, with Jessie, I didn't get an epidural in time and pushed for about 5 minutes, if even that. The doctor was running down the hall as she was coming out, he sat down and she landed right in his hands :)
Did you have an epidural? With Curren yes.
Vaginal or C-Section? Vaginal
Was there complications with the labor and delivery? With Curren there was a little bit, his heart rate dropped when he got stuck, but the nurse got him out quickly after that, Jessie just popped out... literally LOL!
Did you cry when they were born? YES! I was thrilled!!!
Who was in the delivery room? Mark, the doctor and nurses.
Have an episiotomy? Nope
Vacuum or forceps used? Nope
