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

#1-- 3 hours w/3 pushes: induced with pitocin. it would have been shorter if they hadn't turned the pitocin off when I reached 8cm. I stalled as soon as they realized and turned it back on he was born in 10 minutes

#2--20 min from "oh crap this is a real contraction till he was born. Very glad I was alreay at the hospital on my way to a dr. appointment. DH didnt' make it.

#3--induced. 2.5 hours from them breaking my water and starting pitocin. Really just 30 min from contractions that I could feel and that hurt to her being born. 5 pushes for her.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
