Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??
I just want to give you enormous kudos! I don't know how long my pushing phase lasted maybe an hour or less, but it was horrific, the most extreme pain I have ever felt and then my DD got stuck (shoulder dystocia). If it would have gone on any longer...
My other two births had an epidural, so I can't really compare, although I do think each birth experience was a bit unique.
