Baby Survey

I've seen this survey floating around on some of my girls' blogs and thought it was cute, so here are my answers!

Baby Survey:

1. Were you married at the time? Yep, we celebrated 3 years a couple of weeks before the birth.

2. What was your reaction when you found out you were pregnant? Ecstatic. Nervous. I think there may have been some twirling.

3. How old were you? 26 for both the BFP and the birth.

4. How did you find out you were pregnant? +HPT on 10/24/09.

5. Who did you tell first? MyLovf and TF girls

6. Did you want to find out the sex? Oh yes; I'm such a planner, I had to know what color to paint. I didn't want a gender neutral nursery : )

7. Due date? July 02, 2009

8. Did you deliver early or late? 3 weeks early!!

9. Did you have morning sickness? I had a little bit of nausea for the first couple of weeks, but I never got sick.

10. What did you crave? Pretty much everything. I could not stop eating!

11. What irritated you the most? That people would tell me to be happy about not having any symptoms. I've had 2 miscarriages, the lack of symptoms freaked me out.

12. What was your first child’s sex? Boy!

13. How many pounds did you gain throughout the pregnancy? 36

14. Did you have any complications during your pregnancy? Preterm contractions at 20 weeks, but nothing else.

15. Where did you give birth? Banner

16. How many hours were you in labor? 17 hours and 56 minutes from water break to delivery.

17. Who drove you to the hospital? MyLovf

18 . Did you take medicine to ease the pain? I did, I got an epi. I wanted to go med free, but without the cushion of the water bag plus the pitocin, it was just too damn much for me.

19 . How much did your child weigh? 6 lbs 11 oz

20 . What did you name him/her? Sorry interwebs, not gonna post his name.

21 . How old is your first born today? 4 months, 2 weeks & 5 days

22. Who does your child look like? He is the spittin' image of his daddy. Little stinker got my eyes though.

23. Did you get mad at your husband during labor? Yes! I had told him before hand to try and keep me from getting an epi... and he did! It was a tough decision on my part, I really hated caving, but I was in so much pain! When he started arguing with me ('cause I had told him to) I was livid. I screamed at him to "Go get the f-ing nurse!" Not my finest moment, but after agonizing over the decision for hours, I just wanted to get it over with.
