I went to 42 weeks just as I had with my first but my labor was significantly shorter with my second baby. My first labor was 23 1/2 hours my second was 6 1/2 hours.

I am still waiting for my second labor to start and am 3 days overdue. I hope it is a shorter labor.

1st labor- 40 weeks exactly, 7 hours of mild back labor



2nd labor- 40 weeks 2 days, 19 hours of HORRIBLE back labor because she had her arm beside her head the whole time (we didn't know this til I pushed her out and her hand came out along side her head.

My first was born with her hand beside her head. Once her shoulders passed she shot her arm out straight and came out in a flying superman pose. The nurses nicknamed her SuperBaby

Hi, my name is Rose Whyte and I am a research assistant for Dr. Yasmine Kalkstein at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, New York. We are looking at how women make decisions related to childbirth, through a simple survey.

In particular, we are looking for moms who have ALREADY HAD A C-SECTION and are CURRENTLY PREGNANT.

To take the survey, just go to www.facebook.com/birthchoicesurvey

Completion of the survey will enter the participant in a random drawing in which two $100 Amazon gift certificates will be given out.

Any response to the survey helps the research.

Thank you!

My first labour was 36 hours long, can't remember how long I pushed for, but I also had to have oxytocin to help things along *shudder*. I went into labor 2 days after my due date, had him 3 days after.
Fingers crossed that this one goes faster than my first!!

1st baby- 42 weeks ( no induction went I to labor on my own) 10 1/2 hours of labor 1 1/2 hours of that were pushing .
2nd -41 weeks 3 days ( agian no induction ) 4 hours of labor start to finish and only two pushes .
3rd - 36 weeks 5 days . 29 hours of labor . 9 active hours and two hard labor hours. Pushed for maybe five minutes.
I have to say my second was the most intense because it was the fastest . I'm hoping my fourth wont be less then four hours that was incredibly intense and more pain then I'd rather get all at once agian.
