How long was everyone in labor for? Not counting the three days I was contracting, I was in active labor for 15 hours.

Odd, I thought I'd replied to this. I had one of those "Fill In The Blanks" Baby's First Year calendar. In very shaky handwriting on June 5, 2002 is "Water broke 3:20 p.m." My son arrive 1:10 a.m. Active labour was 9.5 hours. I had four days of strong Braxton Hicks Contractions before that, although some people claim we were all in denial and those were actual contractions, LOL!
