  • I was a week late, induced, laying in bed contracting for 7 hours, then pushed my baby out in 5 min. I was SUPER lucky, it didn't even hurt! :O

  • I was induced and was alread 4 cm when I went in (that was a month before my due date). Once I hit about 7, the nurse said she'd be back in about 2 hours to check on me. Well, I was VERY uncomfortable, and called her back in about 10 minutes later because I needed to move (epidural had me COMPLETELY numb). Well, she was going to empty my bladder, cause I told her I was feeling a LOT of pressure, she lifted up the blanket and the baby was almost out! WITHIN 10 MINUTES!!!! Dr. wasn't even at the hospital. Within 5 minutes dr was there and I was delivered minutes later. It was the fastest delivery ever!!

  • For me with my first I was in labor for 17 1/2 hours. It took 45 minutes of pushing when I was finally at a 10.
