The Nurses were telling me how great of a job i did. I had a docs appointment the day i went into labor, in fact Corey was born a month early. Well they said his due date was jan 22nd but the earliest would be jan 18th, my docs said he was forsure that he was gonna make it to jan his due date. He was born Dec 22nd : ) 5pounds 10oz.
Anywho after my docs appointment hours later i was at the hospital. I had a constipated like pain so since i couldn't poop all day the docs thought maybe i was constipated and so did i. I didn't HURT. But the only way i knew i was gonna have the baby was because i lost my mucus Plug.

I made it to the hospital at 4:30 and thats when the Pain begain. I was 8cm when i got there and they didn't give me meds, it was to late they were saying. At 5:36 Corey was born. But my doc said that my mom went fast with all of us, i was 4 hours and my sister was an hour in a half, i guess i took after mom : ) not bad for my first kid!

Your story sounds just like mine-with a bit of a twist. Constipation like pain on and off for a day or so then first contraction hit and boom - 20 minutes and 3 pushes later my son was born at home just me and my 2 year old daughter. Paramedics didn't even arrive until 5 minutes later. Whew. Still seems unreal to me!! My first was more of a normal fast at 5 hours. And my mom had quick Lahore too - 4 hours for me and 1.5 for my brother. So similar !!

I did 6 hours with my firsts-twins. I went in to my regular weekly checkup and doc said go be observed at the hospital for a few hours and if you have some contractions you won't go home. I was 3 cm dilated... for almost a week.

When I got to the hospital(literally a 2 min. drive.), I had dialated another cm and the nurse said my contractions were very regular about 4 min. apart. :) I only felt like every 3rd, maybe.

anywho's. 6 hrs. later Hannah and Ellie were born.



oh, with my 3rd kidlet.... I did 20 hours of labor!!!! so one short labor does not preclude another short labor. :) I'm pregn again now, and I'm hoping for no more than 12 hrs or so. 20 was too many. :)

actually once i hit the real stage of labor it went very slow. i got stuck at 1 for like over a week, then got stuck again at 3 and wasn't progressing so they sent me home since i lived 5 min away. but by the time i got home go figure it went fast. i was home for maybe a few hours before i was back and at 5 and at that point it flew by so fast. but it took me an hour to get her out. she wasn't totally 100% dropped so they let me start pushing a little early to get her dropped. my dr wanted me to get an epi bc he said i would be miserable but it was going so quick i didnt need one by 7.5 and by then it was too late so luckily i had an easier somewhat pain free labor. it was just uncomfortable more than hurt.

Neisha i had an epidural with my first. I got to 7.5cm and it took me 7 hours to get there so i started yelling at my nurse and throwing my gas mask at her and told her to get my a f$@%ing epidural so she booked it and it helped some but i could still feel the contractions. 15 minutes after getting it(which was really 30 minutes after i wanted it)i said i felt like i had to push and she said oh no you don't you're only at 7.5cm...so i started yelling at her again at which point she checked and got the Dr. I regret getting it so i said with my next i wouldn't get one. I did ask for one though becuase after 1hour and 45minutes with my second, i was in so much pain it wasn't even funny. The nurse checked me 1 hour 30 minutes in and said i was doing well and was at 5cm so i moved on the ball to get things going and trying to keep my mind off of things...the yatchee game we brought wasn't cutting it anymore lol...anyways, i was on that ball 5 minutes and i had to move back to the bed. I told the nurse i really needed her to check me and i felt i had to push. She said i was fine and wasn't possible for me to go from 5-10 in 5 minutes so she said to try to stay calm and breath. Well at this point i'm really yelling that i didn't want to tear my cervix if i wasn't ready to push but she wou'dnt check me so she went and got the gas...i guess she didn't look at my file from my first and yep she got the mask thrown at her as well. I told her to get me a G@d damn epidural NOW so she elft the room ordered it up and came back in, looked at my monitor chart...finally! and saw they were good contractions and decided to check me...well i was in fact 10cm and so she ran back out and canceled and asked for the Dr to come to our room ASAP...yep...10 minutes later she was born and it was the worst pain of my life and she was smaller then my first! Like i said before...poor ladies in that ward waiting to give birth lol.

I remember asking the question of what if I don't get to the hospital ontime and my doctor said don't worry its your first baby u will have plenty of time. Needless to say my daughter was born 2 weeks early. They didn't believe I was in labor so I was told to come to the office which was at least a half hour from where I lived at the time. When I get there she said yeah it does look like contractions and I was sent to the hospital which was about 20 minutes from the office. By the time I got there they asked if I was the woman who was 5cm (news to me) but next thing u know I felt unbearable pressure and was rushed into a recovery because all the delivery rooms where full, I BARELY got my pants off before my water broke and next thing you know I pushed maybe two times and then I had my baby girl!! They checked the machine and said that 8 minutes had passed and I couldn't talk to any of the other mothers who had been there all night! LOL

My first was went in labor at 33w and was in labor for 4 days because the damn Dr's kept stopping it and i was in tons of back pain! I was induced at 39w4d and from start to finish it was 8 hours. My second i was induced at 39w and it was 2 hours. I too was not able to get drugs and man oh man i wish i could have. The poor girls in the ward were probably terrified to give birth after hearing me scream lol.

I went into labor and called my parents and before they could make it out of the driveway I had to call them and tell them they where too late. I gave birth in 15 min.

My son first put me in labor at 7 months the doctors were able to stop and put me on bed rest, when it was time he was only a week in a half early and I got to the hospital he was out in 15 mins. I stayed home for the first 3 hours so it went pretty quickly. My daughter started to come at 5 months they again stoppe my labor and she stayed in and they induced me 2 weeks earlier I was in labor for 2 hours and 58 mins. Very quick for both.

Wow.... Not only did i have a quick labor as well(2hrs) but i was also due in January, January 15th to be exact and my daughter Sieanna was born Dec 22nd as well at 7:30.pm the only way i knew i was in labor was because i had a doctors appointment and at the appointment i found out i was 3cm dilated so i finished my Christmas shopping and and went to the hospital. I couldn't get drugs either and i was really hoping i would have had time this time seeing how with my first child I also had a fast labor she was just over 2 hours, so just be careful if/ when u have another your labor could be even quicker.!! :)
