Water broke at 1am on Thursday morning and ds was born at the hospital at 10:23am on Saturday...56.5 hours...here's hoping to a quicker and gentle homebirth in May.

I started hard labor Wednesday the 16th at 4 pm. Water broke Friday morning at 2:30 am, had dd at 7:40 pm Friday night after like 10 minutes of pushing. I was at a birthing center with a CNM. 51.5 hours. Like Cutie Patootie, I'm hoping for a much quicker and more gentle birth next time.

Time of births

1st birth...hospital....deliverd at 2:30 pm...in labor for eight hours
2nd birth...birthing center...delivered at 9:35 pm...in labor for 3 1/2 hours
3rd birth...homebirth.....delivered at 12:01 am... from first contraction until delivery....35 minutes
All three were so different, at different times of the day. They were all such unique experiences.

Julia was born at 10:14 pm, but she was an emergency c-section. I was at 8 cm when she was born, so I would guess had she come naturally, it would only have been a couple hours at the most after that, so maybe just after midnight???? My labor started the previous day around 7 pm, and I labored for 27 hours, but she was entangled in scar tissue (from uterine surgery I'd had previously) and couldn't descend.

I only have one child.

Ds was born 7:18 PM (after a 17-hour labor and 18 minutes of pushing) at a birth center assisted by a midwife and three doulas.
