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?
15 hours , induced, I think it was about 15 minutes of pushing from what my mother and husband said. I wasn't really looking at a clock LOL
4 hours. Pushed for 20 min. It was great that my first was so quick, but I would have gladly traded more time for less pain. I was apparently scaring women in other rooms with my screams. I've had kidney stones twice and people always told me it was worse than labor. I remember at one point during labor, I turned to my husband and I was sobbing and I said "I'd much rather have 10 stones than do this right now." :) We joke that if we ever have a second baby, I'll need to camp outside the hospital because when it comes, it'll shoot right out.
Let's see... my water broke between 7-8pm. I began to feel contractions at midnight and my daughter was born 12 hrs later. So do I count when my water broke or when I began feeling the contractions?
30 minutes,, start to finish... she came early,, they boke my water i pushed 3 times and she was out
Mommy of 2 girls & TTC #3 &
My first one I had a doctors appointment at 10am on December 14th. My due date was the 15th. After appointment I was sore and uncomfortable. I didn't know till I had her that I was in labor. At 5am the 15th I asked my hubby to take me to the hospital. I had the baby at 8am in the labor room.
Actual labor was 24hrs.25 min. I pushed for about 5 minutes.
My first was 36hrs total labor. 31 hrs of that was after my water broke. The first time they had me try to push I still had the epidural. I couldn't push effectively so we stopped it and tried an hour later. I was able to push effectively and only pushed for about 20 mins.
