How long was it from the time you knew you were in labor to the time your baby was out? and how long did you push for?

I was induced and had a cesarean after 20 hours. With #2, labor was 11 hours and I pushed 15 minutes.

I knew I was in labor about 10:00 at night. Water broke at about 11pm.  I had dd at 2:31p the next day. I pushed for about two and a half hours.

I never labored, but from when my water broke until I had my dd (csection) it was about 32 hours maybe. They tried everything to get me to labor but my body wasn't having it lol. Not 1 contraction.

haha! Not for long. My water broke 3 days before my scheduled c-sec. Our hospital was over an hour away. I never had any pain but halfway to the hospital i was having alot of pressure. Made it in time before pain and pulled that baby girl outa my belly. I was having contractions and didnt even know it the morning of my scheduled c-sec with my second daughter. Talk about freakin close call
