    I don't think Elvis would have wanted to be there. I don't think he was a blood and guts kinda guy. Even if it was possible, back then it was almost unheard of, even that would have been a source for a million threads and jokes if he had passed out or something (not that I think he would have).

    My husband did not go in with the first, didn't happen. Then with the second he did. And sure enough he got woosey and almost passed out. Some people just can't take it. They are better off in the waiting room.

    It runs in my family to have our children 2 weeks early with short labors....just plain lucky!

    Missy, our youngest grandson was also 3 months early weighing in a 2.1 pounds. We spent months and months visiting him at the hospital in his incubator. He's 6 now has double energy of most kids his age....from fighting so hard in the beginning?

    Wow Suzan, you made headlines very early in life.
    Glad you made it and that I got to know you....
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    Lucky Diane you didn't have long labors, my boy took along time to get here, 23 hours and my man was falling alseep though half the waiting time. Lucky for me my mom was wide awake

    The fathers were pacing back and forth in the waiting room -like fathers are suppose to do. I myself never felt the need to be in the room while my kids were born-I just am old fashioned I guess.

    Don't know ladies, I keep counting and can't see where Priscilla was overly early as she and I were pregnant the same amount of months and I was only two weeks early.
