How was your labor?
Did you water break first?
How long were you in labor?
How long in labor before going to hospital (or calling midwife)?
Did you have to be induced or have something to help labor along?

How was your labor? Pretty easy, in my opinion

Did you water break first? No

How long were you in labor? Induced, started around 8 am and Gave birth at 6:20pm. I pushed for about a half hour I think.

How was your labor? Even better

Did you water break first? No

How long were you in labor? <10 hours

How long in labor before going to hospital (or calling midwife)? About 3 hours. I woke at 3 a.m. and already had contractions 5 minutes apart. I called the hospital after one hour and got there in another two. I had my baby at 12:49 pm. I pushed for about a half hour again.

Did you have to be induced or have something to help labor along? Not this time.

How was your labor? overall really easy - especially for first
Did you water break first? Yup
How long were you in labor? 7 1/2 hrs from first contraction until she came
How long in labor before going to hospital (or calling midwife)? my water broke at 1pm and arrived at 3pm but no contractions - not even small ones, so I really wasn't "in Labor" just had to go in because of water breaking!
Did you have to be induced or have something to help labor along? yes, I would not contract at all on my own so they started pitocin. They started that about 6:30pm and she came at 1:51am. I could of had her sooner (I was at a 9 by 9:45) but they wanted me to try and relax before pushing. I pushed for 45mins.

How was your labor? Horrible
Did you water break first? Yes at 6:30am
How long were you in labor? 22 hours
How long in labor before going to hospital (or calling midwife)? I went 2 hours after my water breaking
Did you have to be induced or have something to help labor along? I was given pitocin as I was no contracting at all and was only dilated "barely a fingertip" when I was checked in. I was in labor all day/night... baby girl would not drop, I had to push her into the "right" position before actually trying to push her OUT... pushed for 3 hours before they finally decided to use the vacuum assist.... then she was out in 4 pushes.

How was your labor? It went very well,due to the epidural lol.
Did you water break first? No,they broke it when i was at 8cm.
How long were you in labor? I was in labor at the hospital for 7 hours.
