    #2- 42 hours

  • I didn't have any labor with either baby. :(
    The first was breech and was a scheduled c-section and the second I had GD and the doc wanted her out as soon as I hit 40 weeks so she was a scheduled c-section as well.

    I feel kind of ripped off on the whole labor and delivery experience.

  • 1st - 12 hours
    2nd - 7 hours
    3rd - 4 1/2 hours
    4th - planned csection
    5th - planned csection, but I started having contractions this morning - my dr wants to wait until I'm at least 3 cm before doing an early csection, so I'm waiting

  • #1: from first contraction until birth...about 14 hours. From time water broke to birth...just under 3.
    #2: Was in preterm labor for about 2 weeks. From time water broke to birth: just over 6 hours.
