I have pretty quick labors. My daughter was born in 2001 after a 2 hour labor(in the hospital 12 minutes). My son was born at 37 weeks at home at an unplanned UC. I didn't even think I was in labor with him and it was super quick(an hour maybe). i did go to to the ER and my son was whisked away to the NICU for a week without a real reason why until I constantly questioned the Dr. and then all of a sudden they said he has aspiration pneumonia and came home 2 days later. It ended up being one of those horror stories you hear about with a UC. Definitely NOT something I want to experience again.
Anyway, everyone that knows my story with my son always jokes and says how I need camp out at the hospital and that I better not have another baby on the floor, etc. etc. etc. Even my OB says how he wants to do an amnio and check the lungs at 37 weeks and then induce me if baby is ready! I have told him that I am completely against an induction/amnio.
I am planning on having an UC this times but wonder what I will tell people? Should I lie and just say baby came fast again? or that I had a midwife(there aren't any in my area so i can't get one anyway). I know LOTS of people would be completely against me having an UC. i even have an online mommy group and don't think they would even be supportive. Of course everyone wants to hear your birth story. Luckily my husband is supportive(he delivered our son), I just wonder what do say to people in general.
Thanks in advance!
