With DD, one hour.
With DS, 10 minutes.
3 HUGE pushes for an amazing 45 seconds. I must say for a first timer that has to be some kind of record.
I will totally vouch that kegels work, however, I'm not sure if they work that amazing in only 9 months. I've been doing them since I was about 10 years old because I have a bad bladder, and I am very thankful for how strong my muscles must be down there...
But totally worth it! Everytime I see your siggy I melt. That little boy is so damn cute!
Italiannvegas:About 5 hours...the midwives have on record that I pushed for 3 hours but I was not drugged. I know what time I arrived and how many centimeters I was I know when I delivered DD and approx what time I began pushing...they considered me really pushing for 3 hours but I remember differently.
Dude....you are my new hero! I remember thinking while pushing, that I knew it would be painful but I wasn't prepared for how difficult it would be! I can't imagine 5 hours!
vegandy:2 1/2 hours after laboring for 36 total, I was exhausted.
Hey! I didn't know you were over here now! Congrats! I'll have to look up your birth story,
He wouldn't fit under my pubic bone. After I had been pushing for 2 1/2 hours the doctor informed me that she wouldn't let me push for more than 3 hours without getting out the vacuum extractor. I decided to go ahead and let her use it. By the time she got set up for it I hit the 3 hour mark. It was completely exhausting! DS slept in the nursery that night because I was completely wiped.
They had me start pushing at 5:00am on the dot. It took me a few contractions to get the hang of it, since I had an epidural.
DS1: About 15 minutes
DS2: About 4 minutes
