    Id like to know this too.. I have two friends one who gave birth two weeks early and the other four weeks early. Both labours seemed to be around the 6 hour mark. I'm keeping this in mind to stay positive my LO wont be over due nor a horrible long labour. Another however was two weeks overdue and had a 32 hour labour.. Not such a nice thought

    My son was born 42 hours after my waters broke, I don't know how many of those hours were classed as established labor, but I was getting mild contractions pretty much straight after waters went. I had an epidural after 30 hours so that probably prolonged it too. He was 8 days late.

    my first was induced at 40+1 weeks and labour was 4hrs 33mins, she weighed 7lb 1.5oz, my 2nd was induced at 25+5 weeks as he had grown his wings and joined the angels. Labour was 4hrs 45mins and he weighed 1lb 9oz. I am being induced at at least 38 weeks on this one so we will see how long that one takes x

    I just put this on another thread but my little girl was 3 days late by the NHS scan date and 3 days early by my LMP date, and my labour was 6 hours long (28 minutes from rupture of membranes to birth as well, and a 10 minute natural third stage)! So it's not all doom and gloom. :D

    I was so gutted by the amount of people telling me stories about them/their wives/friends going 14 days over that when labour started I didn't even believe it until my MW examined me at home (DH thankfully realised I was in real labour and called her), found I was 5cm and sent me to the hospital!

    I went into labour naturally at 39+2.

    My labour was 12 hours from my first contraction to the birth, but the contractions were about 10 mins apart to start with.

    They normally count the length of labour from when you reach "established labour", when you can't walk or talk through contractions, in which case it was 6 hours long. Trust me, the first half of the labour (before I reached established labour) was a piece of cake; it certainly didn't feel like 12 hours because I was walking aorund town and we went to Maccy D :haha:

    40 mins from when my waters broke to hearing her cries :cloud9:
