What was your labor experience like?

1) How long was your pregnancy term (in weeks)?

2) How did you go in to labor?

3) How many hours of labor?

4) What type of delivery?

5) Where did you deliver?


EXAMPLE:

My labor experience:

1) 41 weeks

2) I was sent to the hospital to be induced, but first they gave me labor jumpstarters. I had a "barbie tampon", they broke my water, and then gave me a pill. 

3) 14.5 hrs

4) Natural delivery

5) At my local hospital


You don't have to answer all. Just curious what some other ladies went through. Now, go!!! :)

1: 38w5d
2: natural
3: almost exactly 12hrs contractions started 8:30pm, ds was born @ 8:48am
4: vaginal
5: hospital
I was disappointed about my experience "/
a midwife I had never met delivered ds. she & the nurses were dictating my entire delivery. I'm very independent & it was irritating the way they were tellin me when to push, how long to push, when to relax, scolding me for making sounds, & doing things without consulting me. I was in labor lala land so I was a space case the whole time. they broke my water (I had only been at the hospital for 2hrs), gave me an episiotomy & cut ds cord even tho df wanted to. he was really upset about that one. also my mom got on a plane the minute I called her & said I was in labor but she didn't make it in time :( when she left IL I was 3cm & I delivered before she got to her layover in GA

I loved being in labor/giving birth. Besides actually holding my son and playing with him now, it was the best time of my life.
1. 39 weeks 1 day
2. My contractions were only 5 minutes apart when they started, they started being 1-2-3 minutes apart a couple hours later, I went into the hospital and was 4cm dilated :)
3. 6-7 hours
4. Natural delivery.
5. Mercy hospital in coon rapids
