Our First Born

I got this survey from my blogger buddy Jenny!!! How fun!

Survey about your First Born-

1. Were you married at the time? Yes, we had been married for almost 2 years when we found out I was pregnant.
2. What were your reactions? Excited and scared to death!
3. How old were you? 26
4. How did you find out you were pregnant? I had noticed some symptoms of pregnancy, but I waited until I missed my period. Event though I thought I was, I was still surprised when the test came back positive. I made Jeff come right home from work so I could tell him!!
5. Who did you tell first? Jeff
6. Did you want to find out the sex? Jeff didn't, I did. I won!
7. Did you deliver early or late? Natalie arrived a little earlier than we had anticipated! She was due on May 29th (Aunt Katie's bday!) and was born on May 7th.
8. Did you have morning sickness? Yes, more like all day sickness though. Yuck.
9. What did you crave? French Fries and Cool Ranch Doritos
10. Who irritated you the most? People who kept asking me if I was having twins.
11. What was your first child's sex? Girl
12. How many pounds did you gain throughout the pregnancy? I stopped counting after I hit 35 pounds and was put on bedrest.
13. Did you have any complications during your pregnancy? Not our ultra sound they found an echogenic focus that luckily turned out to be nothing.
14. Where did you give birth? Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo
15. How many hours were you in labor? Honestly I'm not even sure. I went into labor a couple of the time it was ok for me to be in labor I went into labor Friday evening and Natalie was born Monday morning.
16. Who drove you to the hospital? Jeff and my Mom
17. Who watched? Jeff, Mom, nurses, midwife
18. Was it natural or c-section? I don't like the term 'natural' - I don't think its fair. Just because someond has a C-section, it doesn't mean that their delivery was any less natural than someone who delivered vaginally. They just needed a little extra help! Anyways...I had a C-Section.
