  • #1- 3 pushes. The nurse told me to do a practice push, and his head came almost completely out. She yelled, "Stop, Stop, I have to go get the midwife".
    #2- 4 pushes. I was really disappointed that it took one more push, but I figure I had been lazy about my kegels, so *shrugs*
    Praying it's back down to 3 pushes for number 3.
    My friends all hated me for that, they had long pushing, but I have 9 months of morning sickness, so it's only fair I get an easier labor.

  • #1- 45 minutes
    #2- 3 pushes
    #3- No pushing, he just kind of came out when I had a contraction while trying not to

    I have a friend who pushed for close to 3 hours with her first. We all are different!
