Early, late, or on time? They didn't actually know my due date. My mom wasn't supposed to be able to get pregnant after my older sister due to tumors, cysts and pre-cancerous cells on her cervix. My mom's cycles were obviously out of whack so she had no idea what to tell the docs. And back then ultrasounds weren't that great. One doc said october, one september. I was born 4lbs 14oz on August 31st, but considered full term.

Born natural, c/s, or with drugs? My mom was unable to have natural births because she's missing a small pelvic bone that allows you to dilate. She never went into labor like we think of it, she had extreme dizziness and that was the only sign of labor she ever had.

Formula fed or breastfed? Formula

Disposable or cloth diapered? Disposable

Has your mother's choices influenced yours?Not really. She thinks I'm crazy for wanting a natural birth and no medications if at all possible. It's a little weird to her because she had c/s for both me and my sister. She's also not very good with pain.
