2 pushes with DS. 1 push with DD. I dilate from 6-10 really fast it seems. It has to be within an hour or so...because by 2 hours after 6cm each time they checked....my kids were literally knocking on the door lol.

Baby#1: 3 hours

Baby#2: she slid right out less than 5 minutes, they were begging me not to push because the doctor was on her way, she didn't wait I never pushed.

 

Baby#3: maybe 2 pushes about 2 minuets. I did one "practice push" to see if I was ready and she almost came out, they had me wait about 5 minutes for the doctor to come in and then she came right out.

Baby# 1 came after 5 pushes
Baby# 2 came after 1 push
The doctors were so shocked because my boys weighed 8lbs 12ozs and 9lbs 7ozs

DD 1 I was in labor for 31 1/2 hours, but dialated from a 6 to a 10 in 30 min, did a practice push and got told to stop, two pushes later she was out.

DD 2 I went into labor around 3 am, went to the hospital around 8 pm, was begging to push around 1 and had to wait until 2 for my doctor to get there, two pushes and she was out......the worst feeling in my life was the nurse holding my legs shut while the baby was trying to come out....never want to go through that again!

I essentially self delivered with my youngest lol

The nurse had me do a practice push, and she was like keep pushing, keep pushing, and out he came bag of water and all.
