Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??
I pushed for over 5 hours with my first (hospital birth). He was sunny side up and his head wasn't crowning at the correct angle. The MW got the OB for a vacuum assist, and had that not worked, he would have been a c/s. My second I pushed for maybe 5 mins, and my third for 10 mins... if that. Z was 8lb 3 oz, N was 7lb 10oz, and A was 8lb 13.3oz, so size didn't have much to do with it in my case. Just his presentation...
