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.

 My longest hard labor was four and a half hours.  My daughter was out in three pushes - maybe two minutes - she was in a hurry LOL.  My boys were also pretty fast, I don't remember now how long, it was 20 + years ago for all of them, but it wasn't more than 5 or 10 minutes of pushing.

1st was 7.5 hour s of laboring, including 1 hour of pushing bc his hand was born next to his face and I had to push slow not to tear.

2nd was 5.5 hours, 10'of pushing maybe (3 pushes)

3rd was 4 hours and I pushed for less than 3 mins, he came like aFright train

I think I was in labor for about 12 hours. I was induced but labor was already in early stages and I had no idea I was having contractions. We were in for a NST because I was 4 days overdue and they saw that I was having mild contractions and DS heart rate was going down when I was contracting so they said ok stay you are having this baby today. I was pushing for about half an hour. I was determined to not let it go into the next day lol so he was born at 11:39pm.
