Posted by   + Show Post
Tell me how long you were in labor. How long were you pushing? With my first i was in labor for 11 hours and pushed for about 5 minutes. Second baby i was is labor for 4 hours and pushed for maybe ten minutes.

Another question. The cord was wrapped around my sons nexk when he came out. Did this happen to anyone else? He is perfectly fine btw.

With my first I was in labor for 9 hours and pushed three times.

With my second I was in labor about 7 hours and pushed for about 10 minutes.

I was induced with both and they were surprisingly easy labors.

14 hours at the hospital with both kids. With DD, I had been in preterm labor for 8 weeks. It never stopped.  My daughter's cord was wrapped around her neck. I pushed four times with DD.

I was in labor for 2.5 days with my first and don't remember how long I puched.  I was too bloody tired to think.  I was in labor for 10 hours with my second.


I was induced for both.  I don't go into labor naturally.  Plus, no pain meds.  They didn't believe in them back then.

Started having contractions Monday night.
Admitted into the hospital Wednesday night.
Dd was born at 6:20 Thursday morning after pushing for an hour and a half and no sleep since Monday night. Crazy. :)

I was in labor from 4am to 11:15pm and pushed for 2 hours, the labor nurse was kind enough to tell me that I was doing it wrong which is why it was taking so long. We thought the cord might be wrapped around dd's neck bc her heart rate kept dropping almost to nothing before I started pushing, but everything was fine.

 My first I was in labor eight hours.  Pushed for maybe ten minutes, the cord was around  her neck so they had to use the vacuum to get her out.  Second one, in labor for four hours, three or four pushes and he was out.  Third one, 2hours of labor...and she kinda slid out...I don't really recall pushing all that much...she was ready!!

1st, labor was almost 72 hours, active from start to finish. Pushed for 5 mins.
^^ Easiest labor ever, barely painful.

These two, water broke, (PROM) and labor had to be started by Pit.
2nd, labor was 12 hours, pushed for 4:15 mins

3rd, labor was 10 hours and pushed for 3.20 mins.. She came out bruised all over her face from coming out so fast.
