Re: How long was the labor with your second lo?

From start of the first real contractions to pushing the baby out:

#1, DS: 22.5 hours (spontaneous labor started at 42 weeks & 2 days, I went to the hospital after 5 or so hours and was dilated to 4, had pitocin and an epidural before it was all said and done)

#2, DD: 24.5 hours (spontaneous labor started at 39 weeks, 6 days, I completely stalled out after 10 or so hours and was dilated to 5, we moved over to the hospital after 12+ hours, my MW broke my water, it still took pitocin to really get labor going again, and I had an epidural before it was all said and done)
