Mine was quick, I started feeling cramps, like constipation, right after the needle went in for 5 hours. The doctor broke my water, then within minutes the cramps got VERY strong and I had a need to push. Active labour, where I was pushing was 13mins. And then little man was rushed off by the ped.
How long was everyone else in labour?

 My first dd, I was in labor for 42 hours, then had a csection. My second dd took 4 hours from the time I checked in at the hospital for pre-op until I was in the recovery room. I ended up being in there longer than that, because my blood sugar kept dropping too low, and they were feeding me glucose every 30 minutes.

About 7 minutes or so for each kid. I had c-sections with all 3 of them.

I was induced, but I went from 3 cm to 10 cm in an hour, pushed for an hour, and there she was!
