    Default How long was your labor?

    I keep getting asked how long my labor was. I am not sure. They made it a point of telling me I was NOT in active labor even though my water was broken. I am not sure when my labor actually started. The best I can guess it was 4 hours. I remember the contractions starting to hurt after 5pm and I delivered at 9:14. But???? I have no idea.

    With DS it was 53 hours start to finish. I figured the OB couldn't consider it real labor until my water broke or something but I have a copy of my chart to take t the hospital and even they have it as 53 hours. 13 hours with epidural - freaking expensive BTW. LOL

    I'm not sure when they start counting. If its when I go to hospital then first time it was 3 hrs. Second time was 6 hours. Third was about 6. Fourth was 4 hours. And finally one hour.

    From the first contraction that was intense and painful enough so that I knew this was the real deal to delivery, 30 hours. Don't want to think about how long it was if you count the not-so-strong ones before that!

    I was admitted to the hospital on Monday at 3:30 and didn't have her until Wednesday at 12:07, but I didn't really start having major labor pains until after they broke my water, so from that point until she was born was probably about 23 hours.

    I noticed contractions around 4pm, I knew they were really labor contractions- I could time them and they were increasing in strength around 11pm I got to the hospital around 2:15 they broke my water around 2:45am and he was born at 3:15am. So 11 hours at the longest and about an hour from the time we got to the hospital

    12 hours the first time... Woke up at 4am with contractions every several minutes that took off from there.

    This time they broke my water... Took 4 hours from there. Sure beats 12!

    I think I was in early labour with weak contractions for days but once the induction was started it took 6 hours. They said my cervix was "favorable" to induction (effaced and dilating) that's why it was so quick.
