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?

10 hours. I was induced the day after my due date so my husband could be there. He was still in training for the military.

I didn't push for too long...the nurse had me push as far as I could without him coming out and then I sat in the stirrups for another hour because the Dr. was delivering other babies.

I was induced and went into labor for 12 hours, had to get an emergency C-section. My poor son's head swelled up because I wasn't fully dialated. They induced me 6 days before my due date, I would have rather waited.

With my first baby I was in labor 8 hours and I pushed 2 times, so 5 mins. With baby #2 labor was 4 hours and I didn't push at all. The dr told me to stop and I wasn't doing it..It was my contractions. lol
