I just thought it'd be fun to see what other moms went through during labor and it could be helpful for first-time mommies-to-be!
I have a 9 week old little girl.
Here's my story:
At 36 weeks I was dilated 5 cm. and 75% effaced. I didn't go into active labor until 39 weeks.
I got to the hospital, still 5 cm. and 75% effaced. Within two hours I started feeling intense pain and my entire body was shaking, head to toe. I was in so much pain I decided I wanted an epidural.
The anesthesiologist came in after 20 more min. and my nurse decided to check me one more time. She was surprised to see I had gone from 7 cm. to fully dilated in just 20 min. and I was ready to push. No epi. for me :(
The nurse called for my OB and started helping me push. My daughter's head came out right as my OB walked in! I only pushed for 20 min. So a total of 2 hrs. and 40 min. of labor.
