  • i never got that
    i was in labor for 45.5 hrs!! they induced me 3 times..they broke my water..but, the whole time, i only dilated 2 cm's. so they ended up giving me an epidural, then i had an emergency c section..

  • 4 Hours. Labored a total of 12. Got to the hospital at 6 and was dilated to a 7 - broke my water at 1 - Pushed the last 4 hours. Got the epidural after I was dilated to a 10 then I couldn't push so he made them turn it off. Next time I won't waste all of my energy without the epidural, I'll be hooking that baby up in the car on the way there!

  • I pushed for 45 minutes with DS. I did have an epidural. I'm pg with DD now & will definitely be having another epidural :)

  • Both of mine were natural. I pushed one time with my first DD and my second came while not pushing (doc wasn't there yet).
