I was c-sectioned and Akane was born at 1747. (Looking back, I realize that I was cut because my doctors were in a hurry since my also unneeded induction was not going as planned. I was in too much pain to realize what they were doing and why. However, I am planning a VBAC when I have our next child.)

11:15am. I started labor at 3:09 am exactly (well, that's when I woke up to the first "maybe" contraction).

Interestingly, I was born at 11:36am, and my sister at 9:34am (I could be off on the minutes there). My mom went into labor between 3am and 7am both times. My mom was born sometime in the morning as well, after a 2 hour labor (and she was an only!).

My family likes to get it all wrapped up before noon.

I had my first at 6:41 pm, my second at 6:36 pm and my third at 11:51 pm. But I was induced all three times so I don't know how accurate my birthing times are according to nature's suggested birthing times!

10:19am
11:02pm
9:31am

All babies came when they were good & ready.

My twins were born at 4:40 and 4:50. It was Feb. so definatly dark.

Rivka was born at 5:10 but it was July so I'm really not sure if it was still dark or not. I'm guessing it was mostly dark out. Both of my labors started at night, Rivka's was 10 hours or so, the twins my water broke Wed. night and they weren't born until Fri. morning.

15:55...but I had a section.
I bet if labour was able to progress and I had a vaginal birth - it probably would have happened in the night! (my waters broke at 9 in the morning and he was/is my first!)

Started labour at noon, DD was born at 3.11pm, in the daylight. No medical intervention. She also didn't open her eyes for a few days after birth - maybe it is too bright for daytime babies

Labor started with DD at around 5:30am when my water broke. My labor went pretty fast and she was born in the middle of the afternoon.

DD was born at 10:43 am. I woke up DH when I decided it must actually be labor at about 6:30 am. We got to the hospital at about 8:30 am. She was in quite a rush to be born :

FWIW I was on a pretty crazy sleep schedule at the end of my pregnancy. The entire labor was in normal sleep hours for me. I had gone to bed at about 3am that morning. I would have slept until about 10 or 11 am (with numerous breaks to pee of course) had the labor not awoken me.

5:10 pm.

I started contractions at 11 or so one night, had them all night, when it got light they went away, then they came back the next night and the real labor started, continued to labor all day, and there was dd!
