That's funny!!! With my second, I pushed for 33 minutes (the 3 minutes count!!!!). With my first, I pushed for 2 hours.

Seriously. A part i remember hating is pushing for that long, so you're all swollen, and then having your legs strapped together :(

17 mins. The nurse told my family I would be pushing for 2 hours because it was my first baby. I was not going to push for that long so I had to prove heer wrong lol.

maybe 5 minutes the first time, failed the second time and ended with an emergency c-section, 3rd time about 2 seconds .. lol, 4th time was another flop. It seems to go either way for me. The babies either practically slide right out or they get stuck.

I pushed for less than 10 min. Which I'm thankful for because my midwive warned me during my pregnancy that with first time moms it could take hrs. Which totally freaked me out about labor..But it happened really fast. She told me afterwards that I was lucky ;)
