Laboring on "Labor Day"

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. For us mommies though, Labor Day might take a whole different slant!

Help us put together our own Pregnancy.org "Labor" day article by answering one or more of the following below:

What was your funniest "labor" memory? (Yes, we know there are some!)

What was your very first thought once you realized you were in labor?

While it may seem like an oxymoron, what did you do to relax while in labor?

For our September moms - did any of you actually "labor" on Labor Day? Share your story!

What was your funniest "labor" memory? (Yes, we know there are some!) Naming our son during labor. Before the contractions kicked in hardcore we were watching "Scrubs" and I turned to DB and said what about "Reed"? We named our son after the female Dr. on Scrubs because I didn't like the board saying welcome baby boy ?

What was your very first thought once you realized you were in labor? How do I get out of my office without anyone noticing my water just broke and soaked my pants?

While it may seem like an oxymoron, what did you do to relax while in labor? Everything was great after the epidural, but before I was really calm. Didn't really know what was going on
