If so, how quick?



Just curious. Everyone keeps saying they've never heard of such a quick labor when I tell them about mine... but I know there has to be quicker ones lol.



Started contracting a about 1:15am, started feeling extreme pressure with the urge to push at 3am, got to the hospital at 3:42am and was 9cm dilated, and then I had him at 3:56am. So labor was just under 3 hours long.



Share yours. :D

My first 2 were 4 hours each. My third was an induction so I was in the hospital getting my fluids ect.... but delivered 2 hours after they broke my water. My last I went in at 7am but I wasn't dialating, they discovered I had pre e so they gave me picotin (???) I delivered an hour after then broke my water

Gosh I hope this happens with my next!! I made it 30 hours without the epi this time (got it because of exhaustion), so I'm hoping my next labor is at least less than 30!
