How Long Did Your First Labor Last?

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

At least 10 hours but they gave me an epidural so it extended the labor. I was in no pain. When it was time to push, I only had 3 pushes and I was done. :) One of my friends was so jealous.

I didn't labor with my first. I went in to the hospital to be induced and his heart dropped off the monitor in the first 5 minutes of being hooked up. I didn't even have the proper ID bracelet when I was getting a csection. I had a VBAC with my second. I was in labor for 12 hours. I pushed for 30 minutes on my own. She was pulled out with forceps because her heart rate was over 200 and I had a fever. They couldn't wait any longer for me to push her out naturally.

Labor Two hours and I pushed about 4 times and he popped out :)
I was induced though so it took 30 hours to be 6 cm dilated. After that, his head was about to pop out.

 19 hours in labor and 30 minutes of pushing. My second labor was much faster, I was in labor for 4 hours and pushed for less than 5 minutes.
