  • I was in labor for 7 hours, but I walked everywhere I went during my entire pregnancy, so it might of had something to do with it.

  • I woke up at 5 a.m. with light pain, I thought I had gas... lol
    It got stronger around 10 a.m. but not really painful, at 1 p.m. the contractions were 6 minutes apart and lasted 30 seconds, and then the contractions just came one after another... We drove to the hospital and 30 minutes later my daughter was born.

  • I was in labor with my first born for around 2 days. My labor started at around 2AM, lasted all through until the next day and then I had him. My second labor lasted around six hours from first contraction of labor until birth.
