  • A lady in my last BMB had her baby at 31 weeks. He spent a little over 2 months on the NICU, and she said that statistically white baby boys (like hers) take the longest to graduate, whereas black baby girls tend to thrive the best in the NICU and have the shortest stays. I'm not sure where other demographics fall, but I thought that was interesting info!

    @PinkPrincessPiper Yes, they call it Wimpy White Boy Syndrome!

    @smallbutmighty77 There's not a day when someone here doesn't call my girls feisty - I know I am in trouble when they get home!!

  • Wow, that is crazy! Do you know how far dilated you were when you started to push?
  • My water broke, an hour later I was in L&D, contractions got worse, delivered the baby an hour later after pushing 2x - DS.
    Contractions started at 10am, by 11:30, I was in L&D, delivered the baby 20 min later - DD.
    Easy peasy.

    Not really. One of the nurses had checked me but for some reason was having a hard time telling she said I was an 8 (I'm pretty sure I was complete and she was just wrong)...and then they were waiting for the doctor to come confirm but the sensation was just so overwhelming. Even though they kept telling me not to push, I knew my body was doing the right thing because it felt "right." And it did not matter how much I tried, I could not stop the urge. I knew that my body knew what it was supposed to do. They were just concerned because nobody could find the doctor (right during shift change). By the time they found her I was delivering the placenta and a midwife had jumped in to help.

  • @mokay19 wow, that was a fast delivery! And you make it sound so easy too. Glad it went so well for you.
