And We (Finally) Have a Winner!

I've been too sick to publish this until now. Please forgive me (again)!

Here are the answers to the tie-breaker:

I gave birth to all three of my children in the same hospital: TRUE; there is just the one hospital in my little town, and I never had any complications.

I had epsiotomies with all three of my children: FALSE; I had epsiotomies with Cinderella and the Little Prince, but Sleeping Beauty came so fast that I tore instead (TMI? Sorry!).

My mother and my mother-in-law were both present, in the room, at the births of all three of my children: TRUE; it wasn't necessarily supposed to be that way, but it was.

So, the winner (finally) is: Jennifer! Congrats!

This has been a lot of fun! Thanks for playing along, everyone!


  1. Hope you are feeling better!

  2. Aren't you brave - mother and mother in law at all births!! There must be a prize for this!!

  3. Paige: I am; thank you!

    Hit 40: She wasn't supposed to be there for the first one, but I caved. After that, it didn't really matter. I'm glad she was there, though; it just wasn't my original plan.

  4. Why did I think you had just moved to your "small town" recently so that possibly at least your oldest was born elsewhere?

    I didn't want my parents in the room at all when I was in labor, but they came in anyway. Thankfully they were not there when I actually gave birth. And my in-laws lived too far away. Hooray for that!
    Also, tearing sucks, but I've heard episiotomies can be worse... your opinion since you've had both?
