I'm #InLabor! Mom live-tweets daughter's birth

  • New mom shares everything on Twitter from 'so this is a contraction' to 'baby girl born!'
  • Claire Diaz-Ortiz went into labor on Saturday
I'm #InLabor! Mom live-tweets daughter's birth

If you work at Twitter and you're pregnant, then you're pretty much expected to live-tweet the birth of your child, right?

Claire Diaz-Ortiz, who describes herself as an "innovator" at the social media giant, decided to take her 300,000+ followers along for the ride when her water broke Saturday.

Of course, live-tweeting/Facebooking/blogging one's labor is nothing new. But it's still pretty entertaining for those of us not experiencing labor pains, especially when the car of the expectant parents overheats -- TWICE! -- and eventually breaks down.

Will @Claire ever make it to the hospital?! Don't worry -- we won't ruin the ending for you! Instead, grab some popcorn and enjoy the highlights:


Congratulations to the Ortiz family and welcome, Lucia! She must hold some sort of record for youngest person to ever be issued a Twitter handle.
