Re: If you had a 9/10/11lb baby, how long was your labor?

DS2 (9 lbs. 8 oz.) was induced, was born less than 24 hrs. after arriving at hospital (but I spent the first 12 hrs. with some gel on my cervix to get it to ripen). He was born about 12-14 hours after I started contractions.

DS 4 (9 lbs. 12 oz.) I woke up having contrax, he was born at 4 pm.

DS 6 (9 lbs. 8 oz.) I woke up having contrax, he was born at 11 pm (my contrax wouldn't get stronger so they hurt until I took some herbs around 2-3 pm)

DD (9 lbs. 9 oz.) Started contrax mid-afternoon, couldn't get past a 7, went to the hospital around midnight and tried pitocin for a while before having a c-section at 3:53 am.

The longest I spent pushing, though was with my first (7 lbs. 8 oz.) and my fifth (8 lbs. 12 oz.) I didn't spend more than 10 minutes pushing with any of mine that were bigger.
