My son was induced (that whole part irritates me, but I know better this time). Active labor was only 10 hours, with 20 min of pushing. The doctor literally came in long enough to catch him because he didnt believe the nurses that I was progressing that quickly. It was a Saturday and part of me believes the Pitocin and his waiting til the last minute was because it was the weekend. I've since switched doctors.
Oh and he was 8lbs, 9 oz and 20 1/4 in. He was born a week before the due date thank goodness!

I'm hoping for a baby around 8lbs. DD was 7lbs 13oz which I was VERY proud of for having type I diabetes. I'm expecting this one to be a bit bigger because it's our second but I hope he won't be too big! DD came at 39+5 without an induction.
My labor was about 48 hours long from start to finish...natural and drug free aside from acupuncture. I'm not sure how long I pushed but it was def. less than an hour. Pushing was the easy part! Didn't even hurt at all! I'm hoping this labor will be much faster; one of the reasons labor with DD was so hard is that I hadn't slept in 2 nights.

With DD I was having a relatively normal evening, fed horses, started to have some contractions afterwards, tried taking a bath, still felt bad, around 10pm went to L&D I was 3cm, they said if I walked for awhile and could get to 4cm that would admit me. So DH and I walked for an hour, I was a 4... They admitted me, OB came and broke my water around midnight. 1:30am I got an epi, tried to sleep but was too excited. At 7am they said I was 8 or 9, called my parents to drive up, started pushing at about 9:45, OB was shooting for me to have her @10:11 am [so she would be born @ 10:11am on 10/11/11] unfortunately she was born at 10:29 am. She was 7lbs 5oz 18 1/2 inches @ 39 weeks 1 day, but she's not so short now lol
