Most women give birth in a hospital but some prefer a home birth or birthing center. For others, it just doesn't go as planned.
A friend of mine recently delivered her baby in their family SUV. Not what they had planned at all but after knowing that mom and baby are in good health, it's a great story!
So, where did you give birth?

I was in the hospital. At the rate I was going after my water broke, and the way DH wanted to shower, floss (and no, im not joking here... he actually flossed his teeth), brush his teeth, made coffee, pack his bag, etc.. I was afraid I was going to have layla in our bed! i had no gradual build up to labor..i had boom water break and contractions 3 mins apart from there.
never again. lol ever.

LOL Brie! I woke my husband up at 2am because I had been laboring since 5:30pm and I knew it was finally to the point where we needed to go to the hospital. He was so disoriented when I woke him, he went and got in the shower for a minute then turned it off, got back out and went and laid back down! I said what are you doing?! He said, oh I thought you woke me up for work but then I realized it was too early so I went back to bed. You can imagine my response haha.

LOL Christine!! My DH thought I had just peed on the floor.. I was like "I know I have bladder issues right now, but not THIS bad!" LOL.
Not to mention he had a few beers as a celebration of our last day before parenthood before we went to bed, so he was still slightly buzzed when I woke him .. i was like "oh please dont get pulled over!"...would have made for an interesting story tho!
