  • My first was 6 lbs 5 oz 19 1/2 in long and labor lasted from 5 pm and she was born at 2:23 am my water broke at 9:05 pm only 4 minutes of pushing

    My second was 6 lbs 3 oz 19 in long and labor was quick. I got to the hospital at about 6 pm with horrid contractions. I was dilated to 7, they broke my water and she was out at 7:17 pm

  • Mine was 8lbs 1.9oz and he was 21 1/2 inches long. Was induced too, they started at 9.30pm with that paste stuff, labor started at 2.30 am, induction was at 5.30 am started pushing at 6pm and after 1.5 hours of pushing they decided to do emergency c-section, cause he wouldn't move. Turned out he was face up. He was born at 8.16p, so almost 18 hours. He is the first

  • My first boy was 7 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches long.  He was born on his due date after 6 hours and 45 minutes of total labor.  Only the last 2 hours were painful and difficult.  I had an epidural and pushed for 90 minutes.

    My second boy was 6 pounds, 7 ounces and 19 inches long.  He was born two days before his due date after 4 hours of total labor.  I had no pain meds and only pushed three times to get him out.  It was much easier.  I don't think it was because I'd already had a baby.  They are almost 18 1/2 years apart.
