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.

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!
