With my first, I pushed for a really long time... like, 5 hours (hospital, epidural) and ended up with a vacuum extraction. With my second, I did not push at all (emergency c-section, no labor).
My mother pushed for 5 minutes with her first (hospital, natural). I (her second) was born after she deliberately panted through 4 contractions with no pushing (she was asked to wait for the doctor to arrive, he'd gone to lunch). She breathed through the four contractions, pushed on the fifth and I came flying out like a watermelon seed, to be caught by one foot by a terrified 3rd year medical student. The way my mother tells the story, the man probably still has nightmares about my birth.
Her third birth was one push, her fourth no pushes at all (unassisted hospital birth!) and her fifth was one push.
My sister pushed for 20 minutes with her first (hospital, natural, and she was a kid). Her second birth, my niece's head came out on a contraction (no pushing) but her shoulders got stuck. For the following contraction she was turned and slid right out, so I guess it counts as half a push.
My grandmother didn't push at all with her first, the baby just sort of slid out on a contraction (hospital, natural, baby weighed 9 lbs 11 oz and my grandmother weighed 98 pounds when she was admitted
). As a funny aside, when she went in to give birth to my uncle, she was seen in triage and they started to wheel her back right away. "Oh no," she said, "Those ladies were here before me, shouldn't they go in first?"
She had no clue!
Her second (my mother) weighed 9 lbs 6 oz; on my mother's birth certificate, there's a box which reads "length of stay in hospital prior to this delivery: 11 minutes." My grandmother was admitted and gave birth just that fast.
I'm a total freak in my family, but this is one way I would loooove to fit in.
