Boy, do I wish I'd felt that fetal ejection reflex! First baby, 2.5 hours of pushing, after 3 days in labor. Birthed in a hospital, with an epidural. Second baby, pushed about 30 minutes, also in a hospital but no interventions. Both times I started pushing when my OB instructed me to start, not because I felt the urge. Everything turned out fine, but next time I'll wait. Both babies were more than 8 lbs.
