I have set it so you can vote multiple choices in case you had several babies, though unfortunately you can't mark the same choice twice, sorry.

first birth - epidural, AROM, told to push at 10 cm, no episiotomy, pushed a total of ten times --> 7 lb 8 oz baby
second birth - no interventions, water broke on its own and i was PUSHING, about the same number of pushes --> 8 lb. 3 oz. baby
2nd birth- pushed in hands and knees position less than ten minutes, although there was a five minute break between contractions so it only took 2 contractions.
about 20 minutes with my second, homebirth. Although I think I was pushing involuntarily before that. From when I was told I could push to when I had the baby in my arms was about 20 minutes.
Second stillbirth at 22 weeks. 1lb 3ozs. Hospital delivery, induction, 2.5 hrs of labor, epidural. I didn't push at all.
Third 8lbs 8.9ozs. Hospital birth. spontaneous labor lasting 15hrs. 2.5hrs of pushing. He came out face up with his neck hyper extended and tore me despite my midwifes best efforts to help me stretch.
2nd Babe: Maybe three big pushes. About 10 minutes.
I gave birth in the hospital, but the birth was natural (no pitocin, no IV, etc.)
I had the doc compliment me in that he'd never seen such fast pushing in a first time mom. Whether it was true or not, it was nice to hear in the middle of labor. Boy, was I proud.
My first (and only) I pushed just over 6 hours. Home / water birth, no medication, etc.
It sounds like everyone is saying they had to push longer when in the wrong position, or with an epi, or whatever.
So I'm wondering if something went wrong for me.
I tore like heck, too, because after 6 hours I finally decided she was coming out in the next push no matter what. It took 2 pushes from when I made that firm decision, and I definitely tore myself. Still glad I did it.
