how long

I am just wondering how long your labor was, my mom was in labor with me for 25 hours, she was induced, but I don't know if that is related.

  • 1. 36 hours

    2. 42 hours

    3. almost 8 days

    none were induced, and all were NCB, the last was "overdue" but I believe my EDD was wrong, and she was not at all overdue.

  • I was induced with my first one and from start to finish it was 16 hrs. With my son, I went to the hospital because my water was leaking and I had been having contractions all day. I didn't think that I was in labor since it was 3 weeks before my due date. (The same thing had happened with my daughter at 3wks before my due date and they kept me in the hospital for 36 hrs and then sent me home.) Anyway, they ended up keeping me and I delivered the next day. From the time that I first noticed my water leaking to the time he was born was 24hrs. Like I said, I was 3wks early with him. Oh, and I was induced with my daughter the day before my due date.
