My ds was fully engaged at 19 weeks, and was at positive stations (+1 and then +2) at 25 weeks and 30 weeks.
I was induced at 39 weeks...it was a FAST induction with no drugs needed (just manual water breaking)...but yea. my total induction time was 15 minutes, I went from 4cm to holding baby in that time. I pushed for less than 10 seconds, just 1 push. From my first contraction to holding him was 10 minutes.
I did however go into labor on my own at other times, the worst being 32 weeks when I got to 7cm before the magnesium managed to stop it, I spent a total of about 2 months in the hospital in 4 different hospitalizations for pre-term labor. But once I got tot he point that they didn't use drugs to stop my labor the same thing kept happening as when they did give me drugs...I'd go into labor, I'd get up to 7cm dilated, then it would stop and over the course of the next 24-48 hours I'd undialate back to 2-4cm and they'd send me home.
DD didn't drop till I'd been pushing for at least 4 hours.
