  • I was in labor for 4 hours when I was induced with my first son and then had a emergency c-section. My cousin was also induced and was in labor for 17 hours then they did an emergency c-section on her. And a friend of mine was in labor for about 17 hours before the baby arrived.

  • Tell your sister in law to get over it. Her and her son don't own the day.

  • I went to my Dr.s visit and they sent me to be induced so I'm not exact on the time but I was watching the ball game while in labor so it was an all day thing. Probably 8+ hrs from the time they started the drip. My first labor was mostly at night while i slept so I had my first son was born 4 hrs after my water broke at home.. The induction was rough compared to that.

  • FIRST kid: not in labor till they induced and it was about 8 painless hours. SECOND kid: a total of 2 hours from the minute I checked in till the baby was born. Very fast. Gooo pit drip!

  • Start to finish, 13.5 hours. Everyone told me horror stories about how I would end up with a c-section and shizz...but I was only in pain for about an hour before I had my epidural, and after that it was smooth sailing.

  • I was in labor for a little less than 9 hours, hoping the same goes with this baby
