    My first wasn't exactly according to plan, he came early. I had a drug free delivery 7 hours after my water broke. I only felt contractions with him for the last hour and a half, he was 3 pushes, and OUT! (and the first push was the one when the nurse screamed, "Stop, we need the dr and NICU team!") My second was 45 mins after my water broke, he was face up (more painful) and 6 pushes, and again, natural. My goal this time, full term delivery and not on the side of the road.

    I understand, if my labor time gets cut in half again I will be at about an hour, and I am so scared I will be one of those crazy stories you hear about. You know the ones about the lady having her baby in the car on the way to the hospital! We live a good thirty minutes drive to the hospital. But you never know how long labor will be.

    Neither of mine went as planned. Tess was supposed to be born in a free-standing birth center in Monroe, Mi. I caved and was induced at 43 weeks. After 22 hours of labor and 4 hours of pushing we decided on a c-section since she wasn't coming down. She was too big for me and had her hand up at her face. Quinn was to be a scheduled c-section at 40 weeks. He ended up being delivered at 38 weeks, 3 days when my swelling, headaches, etc got out of hand.

    Number three will be a scheduled csection (if I ever get pregnant).

    In Alabama it is illegal to willfully deliver at home, midwives can't practice here legally. But, I have been told if my water breaks at home to stay put and call 911. We are 55 mins away from the hospital, and 45 from any hospital that can actually deliver a baby.

    It is illegal in NC too. Luckily, I'm very close to SC where it's not.

    I'm so glad to hear that. I was thinking for a minute that your senator must own shares in the hospitals or something!

    I watched a couple documentaries on Netflix last week about the how birthing is in the USA. I was shocked and very saddened. I'm not sure if any of you have seen them but I watched 'The Business of Being Born' and 'Pregnant in America'.

    i guess my birth plan went like planned, i had gone to see my dr for my weekly check up and she said that i should go into labor no later than this weekend this was wednesday night, around 6ish had contractions and ready to go into the hospital by 10 water broke on its on at 10:30 while waiting for the dr to check me. Grabbed my epi at midnight and things were progressing very well and rapid, out of no where around 4 am DS heart rate started dropping when she was trying to flip me to my left side. Things started getting a little scary because every time i pushed his heart rate dropped, they prep me for a c section and my dr said she was going to do a csection and let my body bring him down natural, 4 pushes and help with the vacuum my ds was here at 8:55 am. if it wasnt for the heart rate dropping it would of been a perfect labor, the best nurses ever i had a really good experience

    So with my first DD I went in the hospital at 38 weeks for being in labor. I had just gone off my preterm labor meds and was in labor yet again. So I went in that night for observation because I was not dilating but was having regular long and intense contractions. The next morning they started Pit to see if they could get me to dilate. I got to 3 cm by that night so my OB broke my water in the hopes to get me to dilate faster. By 6 am the next morning I was still only 3 cm. So after 36 hours of labor we opted for the csection. At that point I was exhausted and that baby just need to come out!!

    DS was a scheduled csection because I did not want a repeat of my first labor experience.

    This baby will also be a scheduled csection which works out well because I'm planning on having a tubal ligation at the same time.
