I've just made DD an album of her birth photos and looking at and remembering the pushing part.......Uhm yeah that hurt!!! I didn't push for very long but it was the only hard part of my labor. Any good advice or yeah its easier experiences? I was at my sisters second birh and it was fast and easy for her.

I found my first easiest and my last the hardest - but I think thats because each one was a lb heavier then the last!

It was easier for me. Of course, I'm apparently a good pusher . My first took just about 3 minutes and my second was less than 1 minute of pushing. Second baby was almost a full pound bigger and I came closer to tearing, but still haven't had to get any stitches with either one.

I've already warned my midwife that when it's time to push she'd better be ready!! lol

I didn't feel pushing with my first, but pushing out my second was much faster (at least 1/2 the time).

not sure if easier, but definitely shorter LOL. I think it depends onthe size of your baby too. with my 5th I had no problem with labour, I just knew I didnt want to do the pushing part LOL, because I knew what was coming, though once it was done it really wasnt as bad as I feared and I think I could do this again LOL

My second child was a lot easier to push out than my first but the doctor said my first child was very high up. I pushed the second, third, and fourth out a lot quicker and easier than my first. I did not think the pushing was hard but I pushed all my babies out quickly after the first one was pushed out slowly. The quicker I did it the less pain I guess but I would reccomend listening to your midwife or doctor unlike me on the second, third, and fourth.

I don't think I ever pushed longer than 10 minutes. It hurt more with the 3rd... my first 2 births weren't natural

I didn't have a problem pushing out either of my boys. My first took 14 minutes and my second took 10 minutes (he was a pound bigger too).

It wasn't easier just shorter. But with my first I never felt the urge to push (epi). I pushed for 50 minutes with her, 4 minutes with my second, and 5 minutes with my third. My third hurt much more not only because I didn't have an epi but because I pushed very slowly (without contractions) while my MW eased him out. He was my biggest baby and the only one I didn't tear or get an episiotomy with!

Thanks I feel so much better!!! Really I only pushed for twenty minutes the first time, so hopefully I'll go for the 1-4 minutes this time!!

DD has easily pushed out at LEAST 5 dolls in the last few days and it only takes her seconds each time...She's such a little pro!! DH said that she called him into the living room this afternoon to put a cold cloth on her head and sit quietly while she pushed out her baby, and not to worry if she gave a yell.....I'm thinking she's ready to be present at the birth.
