  • Baby #1 ~ 1 1/2 hours (totally natural)
    Baby #2 ~ 2 1/2 hours (totally natural)
    Baby #3 ~ 18 1/2 hours (I was induced a week early & got an epidural. I think that held everything up)

  • 12 hours total, I guess, (from when I first started getting contractions to birth) but only 9 of them were spent in the hospital and even then I slept through 6 hours of those.

  • i dunno really...my water broke and i had minor contractions, but i had to be induced b/c of the 24 hour rule w/ broken waters. i spent about 8 hours before birth once the pitocin took over and that was w/ an epi. so i guess...8 hours?
