9 1/2 hours of labor...and because I stopped dilating for 2 hours and he wasn't moving down anymore...non-emergency c-section.

Turns out his head was too big for my hips. lol

I wish you ladies would post how far along you were as well (: I was 41 weeks. Less than an hour of pushing and eight hours of labor (: a little tearing but nothing extreme. And no epidural.

7 hours from the moment I walked into the hospital. 30 minutes of pitocin, water broke on it own 30 minutes later ( was already dilated to a 4 when I went in and had been in PTL for 2 Months before). They stopped pitocin, got the epi, had episionomy, 37 minutes of pushing.

1st induction almost ended in c section after 10hours and still only dilated to 4, 30min later was fully dilated and took about 15 mins to push!

2nd induction was fast 3hours of active labor, no time for epidural to work and pushed all on my own about 10 mins.

No stitches needed :)

13 hours with 2 hours pushing and vacuum. 2cd degree tear and it was one day before due date. That was 7 years ago. I hope this time around I go into labor on my own.
