My nephew (who's a year older than me) and his fiance had their baby today. She gave birth at home with a doula and midwife for only 6 hrs! And was 3 weeks early. And it was her first.
If my labors were that short I could totally go med free too jeez! Am I just unlucky to start labor before the crack of dawn and finally give birth right before midnight both times.

I'm just being a hater I guess. Lol. But I wish I could have labors like that!

Mine started at 3am and ended at 1235pm. It really wasn't too bad but I still got the epidural. After seeing the women in the birthing videos I just didn't have the courage!

With Zari I started getting real contractions at 2:30 am it woke me up and I told dh not to go to work. She wasnt born until 11:28 pm. It was hard labor from about 2pm until she was born. I won't count lily since I was induced but dang. I made it to the hospital at 7:30 pm was 7 cm and got the epidural as soon as I could. I would love to try and go all natural, but being in pain for 6 hrs is a lot different than all day. I've really been debating about this with myself.

Jessica, I've heard once you get to 3, they come really quick! Hopefully that's the case for you!

Becca, I hope so! Even a 10 hr labor would be so much better! And with both of them I had already passively dilated to 3 by my last ob apts. So it's not like I was starting at 0.

I called, the receptionist said that blood test takes about 2 weeks to come back so she put a note on the nurses computer to call me next Friday of they haven't sooner. They sound pretty confident that it'll be sometime next week though so as of now the reveal date will be Feb 22. I guess 1 week is better than waiting 6 weeks for an ultrasound so I'll just need to keep telling myself that.

Next Sunday we should know! I'll just try keeping busy with more planning even though everything is bought already ha. I've got to do something to make the week not drag. I was like 75% sure it was a boy for so long and now I'm leaning more towards girl. I'm only like 55% leaning towards girl though I really just have no idea anymore.

Plan some activities for the week so it'll pass more quickly. At least your doing the blood tests so there will be no doubt about the result.

I had a dream last night that my baby was born and she was a he. I kept telling the nurses isn't she supposed to be a girl, but they kept showing me his penis and saying no he's a boy. I think my mom is getting into my mind since she doesn't believe my result yet. She keeps reminding me about my brother and says don't buy anything till after the 20 week ultrasound. I'll at least do that.

Yeah plus if they didn't offer the blood test who knows when I'd get the gender scan! I could be waiting a long time. You still could be having a boy, it stinks to not know for sure after all the trips over there you made trying to find out! But we're all nearing 20 weeks pretty quickly. We're almost halfway through pregnancy already. Blows my mind! I just wish it was warmer here so I could get out more. Being stuck inside is going to get to me soon.
Also, Scot ended up not having one job qualification so the new job isn't his :( that was rough! Hopefully your husband luck is better Becca, have you heard anything?

I'm so glad you got to get that test! Now I just want you to tell us! Lol. And post lots of pics of your party! That's unfortunate about dh's job!

That's what my mom keeps saying, that 20 weeks is around the corner and to be patient. Rationally I see that. Lol.
I detailed and washed the durango so dh doesn't have to and boy am I exhausted! It was quite the workout and its 80 something degrees here so I was hot!

No news on the job yet. The one in Utah (the one he really wants) said they will be making a final decision in 2-3 weeks. The interview he had was pretty basic, so I don't know if they will be doing follow up interviews, or just making a decision off the preliminary ones. I don't think he's heard anything else from them yet.

The other job in Oregon had him do a phone interview with HR, but I don't know if they said when they will be deciding. Hopefully one of the two works out! I'm leaning toward Utah, even though I really don't want to live there. It sounds like a better job for Russ and I have a lot of Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and my two grandmas there, none of whom I have been able to see very often in the last decade, so it would be nice to catch up and have people near by again.

Sorry the other job didn't work out for Scot. Hopefully he gets some more opportunities soon!
