My son was born on June 5th 2008. He was my first and I had such a quick experience with his birth. I was 3 days past my due date and had to be induced. My contractions were VERY strong because of the pitocin but I went as long as possible without the epidural. Finally I ask for the relief but by the time they got me hooked up to my epidural it was time to push and I had my son before I had any pain relief. I went in to be induced at 2 and had my son by 5. I was very glad I didn't have hours upon hours of pain, but I also think that is such an amazing experience and it just went too fast. Now I am expecting my 2nd and I've heard that your second usually comes faster. Is this true? And does anyone else have a quick first birth like mine?
