  • With first I was induced and it was 5 hours, second was about 3 hours and third was I was induced and it was 6 hours, although with the last one it might have been faster if I didn't get mad at the doctor and then sit for almost 2 hours.

  • I had to be induced b/c I was 41 weeks and I was in labor for 18 hours. I'm pregnant w/baby #2 and my doctor says I may have to have a C-section b/c the baby is breech. I really want a natural vbac and no C-section.

  • 20 hours of pain, unbearable contractions until they tell me the baby was way too big, coming backwards and was a risk to both of us giving birth vaginally, so I would have to go for a Csection. Horrible experience.

  • 12 hours with my first and 5 1/2 hours with my second.  No c-sections.
