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?

About 48 hours but I had no idea I was in labor I was only 26 weeks pregnant. This time around I went full term and was in labor for 26 hours ending in a c- section.

 With my first pregnancy, I was in labor for 13 hours and I pushed twice before the doctor told me to stop and he went a got the vaginal vacuum and then I pushed and they pulled her out.

With my second pregnancy with my twins, I was in labor for 6 hours and the nurse had me to do a test push and my first twin popped her head out so the nurse yelled at me to stop pushing and ran out the room to get the doctor who was luckily in the hallway right outside my door.

13 hours but felt like longer cause I started just as I was about to go to sleep so I started out exhausted.

14 hours of labor, 33 minutes of pushing. My second was strange. I was in prodromal labor for 5 days before I finally got induced. Active labor lasted 2 hours and I pushed for 20 minutes.

With Dd i was induced for a day and i went in labour for an hr i.e 12-1pm afternoon and pushed in less than 15mins.
She just bounced out and fell on the floor and fainted and was put on oxygen from that moment till 7pm when we were transfered to SCU in another hospital so she's my miracle baby and i love her more each day.
