Word to docs: Laboring mama is not trying to drag this thing out. Really, she's not. Case in point: Tamar was in labor with her third child. "It was going on forever," she says, and the obstetrician popped in periodically to see how she was progressing. Finally, the guy regarded her coldly and impatiently pronounced, "Well, at this point, I can't promise you a vaginal delivery." Tamar saw red. "Grrr," she says today, "lovely thing to be told while you're in labor."
