With DS, I was in labor for 23 hours. My mom hung out with me at my apartment and timed contractions while DH was at work. I napped, and we watched long movies like "Cold Mountain". Once I was finally admitted to the hospital, I watched more movies on TNT; I was even watching as I was delivering. Does anyone have any good dvd suggestions to take to hospital? I'm thinking one of mine will be "Pride and Prejudice" since it's so long and holds my attention. What are you ladies planning to do on your downtime during labor and the rest of your hospital stay?
