I was 15 when my first was born and I was in labor for 48 hours, the dr wanted me to keep going because he didn't believe in c-sections. that was a good decisions. my second I was in labor for only 39 hours and had a home birth. I was 23.

over 22 hours from start to finish, I had to be given pitocin to speed up the process because I wasn't progressing, I had 2 epidurals because the 1st one wore off and had to wait over an hour for the second one to wear down so I could push

He was my first, woke-up at 8 am with contractions, water broke at 9:30 am; took a shower, did my hair & make-up; went to 40 week appt. that day at 1:30 pm, was told I was 2 cm. and that indeed it was my water that broke. My OB/GYN then sent us to the birthing center, because she told me I would go quick. Needless to say, at 11:21 pm that night I had him = 15 1/2 hours. It wasn't even bad though.

My contractions started on the friday evening, only little contractions then they slowly got worse. When into hospital at about 2am on the sunday morning but they sent me home because I was only 2cm dialated. Went back to hospital at about 2pm on the sunday and they tried to send me home again but my mum refused to take me home because my contractions were so bad. They had to break my waters and give me loads of pain relief for my contractions. Then my daughter was born at 8:07pm on the sunday night... so just over 72hrs.

Hi... umm I went in to hospital at around 10pm on Friday night.. they had to induce due to my water having already ruptured and slowly leaked for a week and a half... I woke up the next morning at 8am and then after an hour and a half of pushing I had my beautiful son at 9:29am born 6lbs 4oz... sooo about 10hrs I guess.. lol.. :)

Lets see...my labor started around 4:30pm and I went to the hospital at 7...broke my water around 9 and that's when the bad contractions started...got my epidural at 11:30, and he was born at 1:58am. So 9 1/2 hours ish? Wasn't too bad actually. I can't wait to do it again. :-)

I was induced a little early. Walking around @ 5cm helped. My labor was short but intense; 3.5hrs start to finish. No drugs. Didn't want them. I'm sure the nurses hated me. I actually didn't feel the contractions to push. Endorphines had kicked in. Nature's epidural.
