    1st was 48 hours (not an option on your poll!!)
    2nd was less than 2 hours.

    This time I am hoping for something in between!!

    Yep, I would actually rather have the 48 hour labour again if I had to choose - I felt so bed after the quick one and I also dislocated my pelvis too as it was just too quick for my bones to stretch slowly and naturally so was in a lot of pain for months after.

    Thats why this time I would like something in between........6 hours would be nice!!

    Contractions started christmas day at 2.15am, Seren was born at 11.44pm on the 27th Dec. As the first 2 days were pre-labour (they said they wouldn't count it unless I was 5cm dilated and they seem to only have included the pushing bit on my labour report it says length of labour 1hr 55mins. Not having that, I felt every sodding contraction!!!! :D

    It said on my notes I was pushing for 2 1/2 hours but it was 40 minutes cos I timed it. My health visitor said I must be mistaken cos I was out of it, but I most certainly wasnt out of it I remember every last detail!!
