All three of my labors were very different
1 very long and hard 18+ augmented with pitocin back labor, baby in decels during contraction, recovering nicely, very mismanaged and scary.
2. also very long on and off for three days,but not hard or painful, hard labor was at tops 20 minutes this was my most enjoyable birth, it was our first HB and I spent a lot of time laughing and talking while walking with my MW
3. 3 hours hard and fast also a HB, it was very difficult, I only wanted my husband to touch me, nothing gave me relief, it was like being run over by a freight train. I think I expected it to be like my second and I was sooooo wrong.
With DD , 9 hours, with DS 13 hours. DD i pushed for an hour, with DS i pushed 4 times and he was born.
8 hours with my first and 5 hours with my second.
Both boys were about 8 hours and I only had to push for about 15 minutes. I had very easy deliveries.
22 1/2 hrs with my first and 6hrs with my second... Hoping for about the same this time around!
