  • First - Induced @ 36 weeks, was not in labor or dilated prior. Too 9 hours on pitocin.

    Second - Induced @ 38 weeks, was 2-3 cm and contracting when i arrived. Took 7 hours on pitocin.

    They both came out on the 3rd push.

  • My first baby was a scheduled C-section, so no labor.

    My second baby -- first labor -- was 8.5 hours from first contraction to birth.

  • with my first one i was in labor for one hour and pushed for 15 minutes. No drugs or anything lol even though i begged, the doctor didnt believe it was going that fast because they thought i was faking it cuz it was my first baby. Afterwards they apologized.

  • baby # 2 doesn't apply (scheduled csection)

    baby #1 I began dilating on 10/15 and went into hospital 10/29 and stalled out and the evil pitocin monster made me not progress past 4 cm. I very much enjoyed my labor pains up until that point (emergency c section) I was looking forward to them getting worse and fast since I was soooo excited about a semi natural vaginal birth (I had a little narcotic in my IV)

  • Start to finish - 36 hours. Was induced, didn't work. Got to 9 cms and stalled, cervix started swelling. Ended in an emergency c section.
