    Maybe two hours? I know I labored down for awhile before I pushed. Labor was 15 hours. It took me 11 hours to get to 5cm and then 4 hours after that I delivered.

    I was a 5 at 3am and then at 10 at 5:30am, wasn't checked in between.

    With my second, I went from a 6 to 10 in 15 minutes. He was out in 3 sets of 3 pushes.

    I think an hour or so with my first - unmedicated and probably the longest 1-2 hours of my life. #2 came fast and I couldn't have been in transition more than 20 minutes but I'd guess even less . . . it was kind of like all the intensity in a short time but at least it was over quickly!

    With my first, roughly 17 hours from 7cm on. It was awful. He was posterior and that caused the hold up.

    With my second, who was turned the right way, only about 15 minutes from 7 to 10 when pushing began.

    It didn't take me any time to get from 4cm - 10cm either time. I can't remember exactly with my first.. but I got to the hospital and was checked around 1130am and I was 4cm. I was 10cm by 1pm ( she was born at 149pm)

    WIth my second, I got to the hospital around 430pm and was 7cm, she was born at 525pm!

    In our prenatal classes, we were told that transition was the most painful, but the quickest part of labour

    I'm gonna guess around 3 hours with my first as I vomited into the sink at my house while in labor and then said, yep, time to go to the hospital! And DD1 was born a little less than 2.5 hours after we got to the hospital (I was at 8 cm when I was checked at l&d)

    With my second, I was technically checked at l&d and the nurse said 6 or 7 cm and she was born maybe 20 minutes later.

    Went from 3.5-10 in 2.5 hours with no checks in between with LO1. 3cm to 8 in an hour and a half, then 8cm to 10 in about an hour, with baby delivered 10 mins later.

    3 hours including 40 minutes of pushing with #2. I went very quickly from 4-9cm (1/2 hour?) but then had a lip that wouldn't go away for a while. With my first I don't remember, but it seems around the same.

    Eta- do I include pushing? If not then it was about 2 hours that I was stuck at 9ish cm.

    I'm not sure with either but I was at 8cm with LO1 about two hours before she was born (I pushed for about 1.5 hours).

    With LO2, I was at 8cm at 5:30 and ready to push at 5:50/5:55. She was out at 5:58.

    About 6 hours the first time and 3 hours the second time. Both were the same or longer than active early labor. I think the epidural significantly slowed my progress both times. My second labor I went from 1/2 to 5 in four hours (painless pitocin contractions, water broken at 5, 5-8 in 45 minutes (very painful), and 8-10 in 3 hours (with epidural, mild pain increasing towards the end), and half an hour of pushing.
