Birth, Abbreviated

One of my favorite blog posts of all time is so simple. Doulicia created a post called Your Birth In Abbreviated Form. It received a wonderful response. I would like to see what you all can do.

The rule is simple: describe your birth(s) in 6 words. One tip from the compiler is to be specific. So.... I'll start us out with mine.

#1 - Small Pill, Medium Baby, Big Cut
#2 - Spine on spine, hold on, pushing...
#3 & 4 - two babies, one labor, fast miracle.
#5 - Holy Mary Mother Joseph - not Catholic.


Now it's your turn!
