It took 73 hours from water breaking to birth, but it was well worth the wait.  I ended up having a mild acupuncture induction ( not a forced induction) and started contracting at the appt.  The contractions slowly got closer together over the next 10 hours and I only spent about 1.5 hours at the hospital before DS2 as born.  It was a great birth, pushed for 15 minutes and really only had any pain during the last hour (transition and pushing).  DS2 latched right on and has been an easy baby.  Its DS1 that is needing the attention!  What a hard transition to two...

 

Moral of the story- trust your body and not the medical scare tactics.  I would have been on an iv with pit had I gone in after my water breaking.  Maybe even an unnecessary c-section.

Congrats on DS2!  I am so glad that you were able to trust your body and have a good birth :)  Best of luck as you settle in as mama to two.
