#1 24 hours, included , them breaking my waters, 4 hours of pushing with no urge to push at all, until the Ambulance arived to transfer me to a bigger Hospital for a section. They would not let me push! Bummer!
#2 1 hour 45 mins included baby dropping past pubic bone, instant transition intense contractions, get into the new car, husband notices before me there is a need for speed! Get stuck waiting for a train to pass at a town we will call "Pen" while push pains start. Get to hospital almost kill a smoker outside of emergency! Refuse the wheelchair (no way I am getting sectioned again!) Husband and security take advantage of contraction to get me in one and get me into L&D, they break my water 10 mins later after 3 pushes we had our girl!
#3 2 hours included instant intense contractions, them breaking my waters, uneventful joyful birth of our girl after a handful of pushes.
#4 2 hours included a planned breaking of waters for induction (though no one told me that would require two men pushing the baby down past my pubic bone!) Pitocine, hate that stuff, I dont even need it! 10 mins pushing and our boy was there, I still think the induction process is why I bled after more than they wanted.
#5 2 hours included not knowing I was having contractions, Just felt off at regular intervals. Get to the hospital, contractions did not even register, but because we were only 2 days off they had to check internaly. 7cm! everyone was freaking out because they could not feel the head, I was like this is great! They break my waters,15 threats of c-sections and telling me I was killing my baby because he was too big and too high later, 3 pushes and our 9 lb 13 oz boy was born.
#6 1 hour 20 mins (we had a midwife this time but had to plan a Hospital birth with her due to being 1 hour away from Hospital) 12:10am, my water breaks! I am in transition but too excited to realise, 12:30 my mom gets to the house, we leave. 1:10 my husband says that it would be funny if we get stuck at the train in "Pen" again, I tell him we wont cause he has to pull over for us to have a baby! We were just outside of "Pen" lol! Call the ambulance and start pushing, in a terrable possition! Ambulance gets there carries me to the ambulance (May I mention it is January in CANADA!) COLD! Next push I crown, hubby missed the birth after all that work because it went so fast the driver had no idea. He was born at 1:30am 9 lbs 11 oz finished at the hospital.
#7 and #8 due July 14th 2014, any guesses as to how long???
