Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??

FWIW, I pushed for about 5 minutes with my second child and maybe 10-15 minutes with my third, although the really intense pushes were 5 minutes or less.
Well for me we knew it was not the norm.

#1 - 1 hour of pushing
#2 - 10 minutes
#3 - 2 pushes
#4 - 2 hours in every position imaginable and no signs of descent or other progress. After my C/S you could see the bruising on his arms and the severe coning with a ridge where his head had been stuck. He was just simply too big.
#5 - 2 pushes - would have been 1, but the doctor made me stop pushing halfway through because she was coming and he wasn't ready, LOL.
