  • My first was induced and labor was around 40-48 hours. I kind of lost track of time after the first day.

  • I was induced. Labor went on for 32 hours. They announced she was "stuck" under my right pelvic bone and did a c-section. She was 9lbs 3oz. Today at age 12 she is ALMOST 6 feet tall and 150 lbs.
