How Long Did Your First Labor Last?
January 18, 2013 at 1:26 PM

How long was it from the time you knew you were in labor to the time your baby was out? and how long did you push for?

    15 hours , induced, I think it was about 15 minutes of pushing from what my mother and husband said. I wasn't really looking at a clock LOL

    4 hours. Pushed for 20 min. It was great that my first was so quick, but I would have gladly traded more time for less pain. I was apparently scaring women in other rooms with my screams. I've had kidney stones twice and people always told me it was worse than labor. I remember at one point during labor, I turned to my husband and I was sobbing and I said "I'd much rather have 10 stones than do this right now." :) We joke that if we ever have a second baby, I'll need to camp outside the hospital because when it comes, it'll shoot right out.

    Let's see... my water broke between 7-8pm.   I began to feel contractions at midnight and my daughter was born 12 hrs later.  So do I count when my water broke or when I began feeling the contractions?

    My first one I had a doctors appointment at 10am on December 14th.  My due date was the 15th.  After appointment I was sore and uncomfortable.  I didn't know till I had her that I was in labor.  At 5am the 15th I asked my hubby to take me to the hospital. I had the baby at 8am in the labor room.

    My first was 36hrs total labor. 31 hrs of that was after my water broke. The first time they had me try to push I still had the epidural. I couldn't push effectively so we stopped it and tried an hour later. I was able to push effectively and only pushed for about 20 mins.
