When people talk about how they were in labor FOREVER and they were in labor like 8 hours or something, do you ever laugh to yourself and think something like, "How would you have survived if you were in labor as long as me and some of the other women who labored for days?" because they are making such a big deal out of the fact that they were in labor for SOOOO LOOONG?
***I'm NOT saying that a person who has a shorter labor can not have a difficult labor! I'm not talking about the difficulty of labor, just the amount of TIME labor lasted, regardless of difficulty. This is ONLY concerning people who complain because they were in labor for like 4 hours, or whatever, NOT factoring in the pain or anything else, JUST the TIME. (Figured I'd throw that little "disclaimer" in because I'm sure someone is going to bitch and say that I'm bashing people when I'm not lol.) ***
My friend and I were talking about this the other day because she was only in labor 4 hours and I was in labor for about 68 and she was talking about how thankful she was that her labor was short and how a friend of hers had complained to her about being in labor for 2 hours.

I was in labor for 3 days with my first. I had no sympathy after that for anyone who birthed in a few hours and then complained about it. Until I did it, lol. My last 2 were only 5 hours of painful labor a piece. And didn't hurt as bad. I was more exhausted with my last 2 then I was with my first. It gave me a different understanding, lol.
