4 hours home water birth, 10 mins from water break to birth) He was my biggest baby(9 pounds) but it was the most amazing birth.
None of mine were long though, first was 7.5 hours, 2nd was 5.5

Yes, my third was by far the easiest. I was induced because she was late and the induction took forever, but once it got time to push, it was 1-2-3 and there she was :) I felt like a million bucks afterwards too. Like I could have hopped out of that bed and danced a jig. Basically no recovery time whatsoever.

What's is HELLPS?

Quoting PrincessPeach06:

#3 was one of the worst but I was induced and had horrible back pain.  I also ended up with HELLPS after she was born which is rare.  My easiest was probably #4.

Dc1: scheduled c-section

Dc2: VBAC, 23 hours of back labor (21 of them drug-free)

Dc3: VBAC, 26 hours of back labor (23 of them drug-free) and by far my most difficult birth AND recovery

3 hours with my 3rd. It was easy because it was a short labor, but the transition was hard. I had all 3 natural, no drugs!
