  • well it took 2 hours.. but that was because he was pushing towards my butt! As soon as they used a vacuum on him though to get him to push out straight he slid right out. I think It would have only taken a few pushes if he hadnt been trying to come out the pooper hahhaha ;)

  • I only have one baby right now.. and it took me less than 10 minutes to push him out. The doctors were amazed and asked if it was my 3rd or 4th baby. lol I asked for an epidural but by the time they could give it to me I was 9.5 cm. Ouch lol
