How long was you in labor? Was it natural? Or get epidural or c -section. My first 4 pregnancies, was natural! Ouch ouch! Because my mom always told me with the, epidural, if you moved when the doctor, was administration it could be paralyzed. So I skipped, but with my 5 pregnancy, I wasn't going through horrible pain again! Got epidural! It was a breeze!

All 3 times I gave birth vaginally and had epi. With my last I went through most of labor without epi though.

First was quite a long time. I had backlabor and spent about 12 hours with back pain beofre I went in. Then I had ds another 12 hours later.

Sedcond and third were liek 6 hours.

Oh and no stitches =)

My 1st I had an epidural it was 26 hours long.  My 2nd I had the epidural and I was induced and it was 5 1/2 hours long.  My 3rd and 4th were c-sections.

With my oldest I was in labour for 8 hours, I did end up getting an epidural. My other two pregnancies I had c-sections since they were high risk.

Landon weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 20.5" long. Lexi, who was six days early, weighed 7 lbs 1.5 oz and was 19.5" long. Lol.

I only labored with my first....48+ hours of back labor...never got past 4cm, babies heart rate started dropping with each contraction, so they finally did a c section, I've done repeats since
