I was induced with #1 just past 38w due to complications. I had a 19 hour labor which included a little over 1 hour pushing and DD was 7 lbs 8 oz. With #2, I went into labor on my own just past 39w. I had DS 1 hour after getting out of the car at the hospital. They checked me at 1:35 am and I was at 5 and DS was born at 2:21 am, weighing in at 8 lbs 11 oz. DH is worried that we might not make it to the hospital in time next time.

My mom had relatively fast labors also. Her 2nd was induced and she was born 1 hour after they started pitocin.

DD was born at 38 weeks. I'm perfectly happy to welcome this little nugget a couple of weeks early, too!! :)

I was induced at 39 weeks, two days before my due date with #1 DS. I ended up needing an emerg c-section due to problems. He was born after midnight, the day before his due date. We joke that he didn't want his birthdate picked for him.
I decided on a VBAC the second time since I had many problems after my c-section and I had home care for three months afterwards. I was scared of it all happening again. My water broke at Babies R Us at 37 weeks. I felt no contraction until a few hours later. He was born fast after I did. My epidural wasn't even plugged in it was so fast.

With my 1st, I went naturally at 35 weeks, so I thought I would with my second.

I had DD#1 at 36 weeks. I was induced due to pre-eclampsia. She was healthy though, thankfully!

DD#2 came VERY quickly at 39 weeks. When I got to the hospital, I was already 9cm and didn't have time to get an epidural--ACK!!!!

With this baby, I am definitely posting my prego booty by the hospital if I'm dilated at all!!! Hahaha, I'm kinda scared at how fast #3 will come!!! ;)

First baby was induced, so that doesn't count.

My 1st was born at 34 weeks, my 2nd at 36 weeks, my third at 38 weeks, my fourth at 38.5 weeks, and my fifth at 39 weeks. I'll be curious if I continue with the pattern and have this one at 39.5 weeks. :)
