  • lost plug on a Friday morning contractions started Friday night continued uneven times through weekend, Monday at 2pm I was 5 cm, at 10 pm Monday night I was 10 cm. I pushed for over two hours and my son was born by section cause he didn't come down at all into the birth canal, at 1 am Tuesday morning,

    Well worth the pain to hold my son.

  • 36+ hours (I lost count), 3 hours of pushing (give or take) and a 9lb 8oz baby. No drugs. No sleep. It was hell. That was my firstborn. My lastborn - I was in labor, contracting every 5 minutes, for over a week - yep, more than 7 days. Didn't progress, baby was fine, yadda yadda yadda. Once I got some pitocin it took less than 3 hours til he was born, 9lb 2oz. The rest were anywhere from 7-24 hours.
