I was 1cm when I went in. Had the balloon put in over night, so was 3cm by the morning (but not in labour). They broke my waters at 6:30am, but this didn’t get labour going so the pitocin drip was started at 8:30am. They increased it 3 times between 8:30am and almost 10am before it was enough that I didn’t need anymore.
I started to need to concentrate and breath through contractions from around 9:30am onwards, and my son was born at 12:40pm - so I kind of consider my labour 3 hours and 10 minutes. But the hospital I think only counts labour from when things get more intense, as they counted it as a 2 hour and 15 minute labour..

Pitocin was awful. My honest advice is to get the epidural with the pitocin. I had a rather horrible experience and I went from 4-10cm in 1 hour. And the epidural didn't get placed until I was about 9-10cm and it took a long time for it to kick in because I was in so much pain, my adrenaline was burning it off. It wasn't like that at all with my first.
