  • 1 labor three sections. 1st labor plug came out a friday a.m. contractions started friday night. my son was born Monday night into Tuesday morning at 1a.m being after all that a csection. My second baby was a planned section. My third baby's ultrasound the day before she was born the tech told us I was having contractions and might not make it to the planned section the next morning, the next morning by third csection our third baby was born.

  • My first labor was 19 hours and pushed for an hour and a half. My second was 4 1/2 hours and pushed for 10 min.

  • I never labored with my 1st kid, so my 2nd labor was essentially my 1st labor in all ways. It was 25 hours. Everyone says that was a long time, but I would have been happy to go longer... I LOVED my labor. I tell you, researching and practicing different pain reliefs techniques pretty much made my natural labor wonderful.

  • My first was a scheduled C-section, so my second baby was my first labor, but it was 8.5 hours long, from first contraction to baby coming out.

  • My 1st I was induced and had about 11 hours of labor with 2 hours of pushing. 2nd was about 10 hours and I really didn't push at all she kind of fell out. I'm 18 weeks with #3 so we'll have to see.

  • I was in labor with my first for about 2 hours. 20 minutes of that was pushing. With my second baby I was in labor for 1 hour and pushed for less then 5 minutes. With my third child I was induced with cervidil. I dozed off and on from 11pm until 1:45am. When I woke up I was having intense contractions and my doctor checked me and I was 9cm dialated. I delivered my baby at 1:51am after trying not to push because my doctor wasn't ready. My baby was born on the bed and I had to tell my doctor she was out. My doctor pulled back the blankets and picked up the baby and told us it was a girl. I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant with baby #4 and I'm hoping to make it to the hospital. lol
