  • My first was 7 hours, my second was 29 hours. Vaginal births without epidurals. I actually stopped with my second and they had to give me pitocin.

  • 27.5 hours of back labor! 1 shot of Demerol and 15 years later I still wanna hurt the nurse who yelled at me for being cranky when she wouldn't let me out of bed!

  • In order, with my DD I was in labor 28 hours. I got lucky though. It was easy labor and I slept through the whole thing. DS #1 was 8 hours and a lil hard. DS #2 12 hours and labor was harder yet.

    I came to the conclusion that whoever said labor gets easier as you go along had to be a man.

  • From the time I was admitted to the hosp until birth was 5 hours for all three of my kids. That's not counting the earliest stage of labor though.

  • I was induced at 7:00 AM and my labor would not progress. So I had a c-sec and had Abby at midnight... So like 17 hours...
