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.

4 1/2 days with oldest pushed for a few hours before I was told that he was too big to fit and had  a c-section then I just  scheduled a section with the other too cause my babies are always big.

Labour is the European and Canadian spelling, labor is the American spelling. Either is acceptable.


Quoting Sept-babies2:

Is that how you spell it? Labour...i feel stupid now lol



Quoting lovelyladybump:

I was in labour for 4 hours. I pushed for about a half hour. DS's cord wasn't around his neck.

DD: in labor for 14hrs, pushed for 40 minutes (had shoulder dystocia)

DS1: in labor for 24hrs, pushed (sort of) for 12 minutes (I pushed once, started to throw up- and he was still coming down- stopped throwing up, pushed 2 more times and he was out)

DS2: in labor for 12hrs, pushed for 10 minutes

No cords wrapped around their necks, but since my DD was kind of stuck, she came out and wasn't breathing. But that's the only issue I had.

36 hours of labor with my first, 2 hours of pushing and ultimately ended in a cesection. 3 hours of labor with my second and like 5 minutes pushing.

I was induced at 41 weeks 2 days.
I was in labor for 24 hours. Pushed for about 3.
*no cord wrapped. But she wasn't breathing. And they rushed her away with my husband in tow. She was fine but it was the scariest moment of my life.
