How long were your labours? - Page 5

post #81 of 83
dd1: induced at 38 weeks with cervadil and oxytocin. 21 hours from first contraction to birth. Epidural.

dd2: prodromal labour for a few days, the "can't talk have to remember to breathe" type. "Active labour" about 12 hours (of course ending at 8am to an exhausted mama). No pain meds.

Completely unmedicated labor at 38 wks. 21 hours long. Approximately 8 hrs transition/pushing. Ctx were regular, at least a bit painful, and close together right from the first one. Avg 45 sec every 2-3 min the whole time. I had one brief period of about 30 min where they were about 5 min apart. Oh and the last 8 hrs was excruciating.

Labor was 28 hours from first contraction until delivery. Only about 4 hours of intense labor and 20 minutes of pushing. No drugs!
