My labor prediction quiz isn't very accurate because DH doesn't know much about his history. We were guessing with him, lol. But I sure am annoyed at the prospect that it says we'll have the baby later than our EDD! My mom said I was super overdue when she had me via c-section (2+ weeks, although she exaggerates and says "a month!" which I don't believe LOL). If I go overdue by even a week I think I might have a nervous breakdown.
I don't know if I want a quick labor anymore, though! It sounded nice until I was informed by women I know who have had shorter labors that the shorter they are, the more intense they typically are....... like if you get a Pitocin induction, everything is more intense and less bearable than without. I sure hope that isn't how it is for everyone! If I can have about a 4-6 hour labor that is very bearable, I think I'll be happy. DH just better be home when I go into labor... He works nights and oversees patients on his own so if I call him to rush home, it won't quite be a quick thing for him to leave on the spot. He'll either have to wake patients up and ask them to go home so he can leave, or he'll have to call any other co-worker he can find to come in and take over on the spot. I don't see either of those processes being very quick. lol
