  • I was induced, labored for 22 hours, pushed for 10 minutes.

    Also induced with 2nd, labored for 9 hours and wound up in a c-section due to no progress/big baby.

  • Lost plug Friday morning contractions started Friday night to very early Tuesday morning ending in cesarean. Pushed for two hours before cesarean without my son coming down at all. I was induced that Monday afternoon but didn't help at all.

  • I was in labour 12 hours with my first and pushed for an hour before I had to have medical intervention.

    I was in labour 5 hours with my second.  Can't remember how long I pushed for but it was a lot quicker that the first.
