How many weeks pregnant were you when you gave birth to your first child?

If you have more then one child, how many weeks pregnant were you when you gave birth to subsequent children?

What was your first thought when you realized "it's time?"

How did you know for sure, "it's time?"

Did you water break?

Did you have an enema?

Did you have a catheter?

On a scale of 1-10 how painful would you say labor was?

Did you have an epidural?

Were you induced?

Did you have a c-section? If so, was it planned?

How many hours was labor?

Did you have an "activity" to pass the time (e.g. did you watch dvds, play cards, paint your toenails, etc?)

Did you have any complications? If so what were they?

Were you mean to your "coach?"

What's one thing that you would do differently if you could do it all over again?
