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?
Four days....got to 6 cm and baby was in distress so had an emergency c-section.
So you went into labor naturally with #2? I'm curious because I have hope that I'll be able to deliver my second baby sans a c-section. Were you close to your due date with #2?
Quoting mich.el.le:I was induced and had a cesarean after 20 hours. With #2, labor was 11 hours and I pushed 15 minutes.

well, i had contractions the day i got induced. i got induced at 7pm and went into the hospital at 5am the next morning. Addi was born around 3 in the afternoon.
I was in labor for 26 hours with my first one. At least that was when we were timing contractions I could have been have labor pains for a few hours before that but wasn't sure and then we started timing them and it was apparent - Labor was in Progress! I am not sure how long I pushed, maybe 10 - 15 minutes but it seemed like hours. It seemed longer when they were telling me to not push because the doctor wasn't ready that felt like a century lol All the rest of my births went fairly quickly, 2nd was about 5 hours after my water broke Had to push quite a while with her because there was not fluid left. 3rd was a three hour labor from the time we started timing them but I was out shopping for Halloween costumes for my older 2 and did not tell my husband I was having contractions so really about 5 he was 10lbs 6 oz and he climbed out I don't remember pushing at all but he came out. The last one I was having Braxton Hicks for 2 months so I almost did not realize it was labor and I was only at the hospital about 4 hours before he was born. They had given me pitocin ( I don't know why I guess I was too comfortable with my contractions and they decided to "get them moving". Again I don't really remember pushing, he just came out. another big boy ( 9lbs 8 oz)
With my daughter, I had 12 hours of natural labor. With my son I had the horror story labor. 24 hours of hard labor and an emergency c-section.
My water broke sometime around mid afternoon saturday, baby was born by 347 sunday morning. I think I pushed less than an hour.
