If you had a 9/10/11lb baby, how long was your labor?
First was 9lb 13oz. Was induced. 14 hrs of labor. Ended in csection for FTP.
Second was 10lb 11oz. I was in labor for 3 days at home. Finally went to hospital needing pain relief and SLEEP. Epi and pitocin for 12 more hours. Another csection for FTP.

DD1 was 10 lbs exactly.

Labour began at 3 am and was fairly intense by 9 am. I was pushing at 1 pm and DD was born at 2 pm. So, about 11 hours total. Born naturally, we don't have epidurals or anything at our hospital here.

My DD2 was only 8 lbs and labour was SUPER DUPER quick (like almost had the baby in the car kinda quick ) :)

All mine were about 8 hours. Overhead 1 who was 9 lbs 1 oz an another who was just under 9 and a half lbs. both of those were induced. The first was pictocin and I used IV meds for the back labor. The second we started with a cervical pill and after 4 hours progressed to pictocin. My midwife turned it up slowly and allowed me to move around and be comfortable. About 4 hrs later yds was born med free. (Other than the pictocin). My mom who knew I was being induced came straight from work worried about me cause in her experience an induction took less than 4 hrs from start to finish ( ie- turn up the pictocin to full blast and our comes baby). She arrived right as DH and yds had left for the nursery to clean up.

My youngest baby was 9 pounds 15 ounces. Labor last all day but she was also breech which ended in a c-section.

DS2 was 9lbs 6oz. Just over 7 hours of labor. He was my vba2c baby.

9lb6oz 27 hours of serious labor and 3 hours of pushing. Probably would have had interventions or maybe even a section if I had been in a hospital. It was rough.

DS was 10# 11oz. Induction, epi, pushed for 5 hours (seriously) and had a CS for maternal exhaustion.

DD was 9 lb 15 oz. Actual active labor to baby out was only 3 hours. Born at home. I was standing which I think helped.

Labor was 7 hours for my 9 lb 2 oz baby, which we 33 hours shorter than it was for his 7 lb 10 oz sister! His birth was sooooo much easier.

I have had three over 9 pounds.

9.6 was my first child. Hers was around 4 hours if I recall correctly (it has been 14 years and I don't have her baby book handy)

My 3rd child was 10.14 and his was a very fast and very easy birth. I literally hit transition before realizing I was actually in labor. I believe we went from thinking I had eaten bad taco bell to holding him in about 40 minutes? I know he came so fast we never made it out of our hotel room.

4th child was 11.6
First strong contraction was at 6:20 and I caught him at 7:57

Oddly enough, my smallest two (8ish pounders) were my most intense labors.

10 lbs, 12 oz. Induction, 18 hours from first twinge to baby on the boob.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 08:39 AM.
