Exactly 12 hours. They started pitocin at 730 am and I had her at 730 pm.

Kinda what I expected

DS1 12 hours
DS2 9 hours
DS3 9 hours

It was better than I had expected, because my whole family had me convinced that it was going to be so painful and terrifying that I would need mental help afterwards. LOL.

12 hrs with my first and it felt like really bad menstrual cramps. I had a c-section with my second and third however, with my third, my water broke on Sunday and my surgery wasn't scheduled until Thursday. It felt like a small pop in my belly really high and there was no gush of fluid. I was already using panty liners so I didn't realize there was a very slow leak. I had excruciating back pain for those four days. When my OB made the incision in my uterus, he nicked my son's head. My son had no fluid left and it wasn't until they put me on the monitors that we discovered he was having decels. So, I was in labor for 4 days with him and didn't know it.

12 hours 20 minutes.. I was induced. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but the last 2 hours of contractions were the worst.

From start of contractions
1st. 7.5 hours, 1 hour was pushing slow due to nuchal hand but it went great.
2nd 5.5 hours induced (bad on my part) but got very lucky with my own water breaking and fast delivery.
3rd 4 hours, all natural home birth, biggest baby best birth! Amazing all a round
4th is due in sept and I wonder if it will follow or be a crazy curve:)
