Did you listen to music when you were in labor? no

Did you lose your mucus plug? no

How long was your labor with your other kids? 23 hours

How much weight did you gain during your last pregnancy? 28 lb

What was your recovery like after birth? I had a catheter the whole next day because I couldn't pee on my own. I had pain for a while - it turned out I was allergic to my stitches & had to be re-stitched about a week after the birth. I also developed a really sore muscle in my hip (not sure how, maybe just lots of time nursing in an awkward position?) so it hurt to walk for a few weeks. I experienced some irritation for several months and that turned out to be from dryness caused by low estrogen (apparently fairly common after giving birth). Sooo.... recovery was a drag. But worth it.
