Out of total curiosity... 

How long was your third child's labor? and how close in age is your second to third?


My first: Now  4 years old ...was 35 hours and 1 hour of pushing.

My Second: Now 18 months... was 4 1/2 hours and 8 mins of pushing. 


I'm hoping since my second and third are close in age there labors will be similar... will see!

My first, now 5, was about 10 hours and an hour or so of pushing.
My middle, now almost 3, was about 3 hours and 10 minutes of pushing.
My third, now 8 months, was not even 2 hours and maybe 2-3 pushes.

1st (now 6 years old) - 8 hours 

2nd (now 2 years old) - 6 hours

3rd (now 6 months old) - 3.5 hours

I don't remember how long the pushing was for each but it wasn't long at all. I pushed three times for the third.

My first was 6 hours of labor and 25 minutes of pushing.

My second was 12 hours and pushed for 10 minutes.

My youngest was 18 hours of labor and less than 5 minutes of pushing.

There is 11.5 months between each of them.
