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?

I actually started labor at 10:00am but didn't know I was in labor until I went to the hospital at about 4:00pm. My son was born at 8:41pm.

My water broke at 10pm on May 7th. I was dialted to a 2 when I got to the hospital & my contractions were so weak that I could hardly feel them.

They started Pitocin at 6am on May 8 after no progress all night. 

I started pushing at 2pm on May 8.

He was born at 2:22pm on May 8.
