    56 Hours 43 Minutes. It Hurt Like Hell For The 21 Hours Before The Actual Birth and The After Pains Were Excruciating For Me For a Few Hours.

    My contractions started at 3am, I gave birth at 6:40pm but according to my notes I was only in established labour for 50 mins. The contractions were ok until the last 2 hours, thats when it really hurt :wink:

    on my postnatal notes the MW had written 7 hours, not sure what she classed as labour and how she got that number coz she was only here (i had a home birth) for 4 hours!
    it was those last 4 hours that i found the pain hard to handle, after i was 5cm dilated. and i think it was only the last two contractions before i started pushing that made me squeal and cry

    86hrs and was perfectly comfortable for 3 quarters of it, up until being induced, then it was a few hrs of quite uncomfortable contractions which lead to an epidural being administered.

    With my first baby from very 1st pain was about 20 hours but bad pain for about 3 hours
    My 2nd was 10 but I was in really bad pain for 5 hours, I was pushing for 4 of them though.
    My 3rd very 1st pain was about 10 hours but very mild to start and proper labour was about 1hr 44mins. Yes it really hurt bad!

    My maternity notes say 5 and a half hours!! I had backache the night before I suppose it was the beginning of things but it wasn't until about 11am that I felt that it was a bit more serious than just a bit of backache and the baby was born at 4.30pm!

    It was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be - no pain relief except a bit of gas and air and I am a real wimp! It's certainly nothing like TV where it's dramatised.

    Mine was 13,5 hours and for about 5 hours it was ok (I was thinking, hmmm, it's not that bad after all - lol little I knew then!), then it was painful but still not excruciating for 3 hours but...it hurt really bad for the last 5 hours!

    You will be just fine :hug: :hug: :hug:
    If you start to practise your breathing technique now, and do it daily, it will help you so much, both for dealing with contractions and feeling in control. The more control over your breathing, the better equipped you are :hug:
