I was induced at 3 pm on Halloween night and I didn't have Madyson until 7:57 pm the next night. I pushed for two hours and her head was 1/2 out and the dr literally shoved her head back in and sent me to have an emergency c-section because she was going to break my pelvic bone if I would've pushed her out. With my youngest MacKenzie I was scheduled for a c-section at 9am and by 8 am I was in labor on my own and was dialated to 4 when I got to the hospital. They rushed me back to surgery and I had her at 10:14 am.

I was in labout about 3 Days, i got sent home from the hospital twice because i was only 3 centimeters dialtated, I was in full blown labour about 8 hours, i think i slept for 2 whole days after my daughter was born, it was very tiring, i had an epidural which didnt work, so stuck with dio-morphine and good old gas&air.

I was in labor for 5 and 1/2 hours, the epidural really slowed down my labor my doc told me so i cannot imagine not having it. I prob would have had him on the way to the hospital!!!
