I was just curious. My mom (with her first baby) was only in labor for 1 1/2 hours. Start to finish. Once her contractions were 5 minutes apart, she delivered in 30 minutes. My sister (with her first baby) was only in labor for 4 hours. Start to finish. Once her contractions were 5 minutes apart, she delivered in an hour. HERE is my question.. My doctor told me not to even call her until my contractions are 5 minutes a part. Also, I live 20 minutes from the hospital if traffic is favorable. If it's during rush hour, I'm an hour away!!! What is the likelihood of me having a labor this quick? And do you think, given all that information, I should really wait until my contractions are just 5 minutes apart? Has anyone had a mom and/or sister have labors like this, and then they had a long labor? Just curious! I have a doctor's appointment Tuesday, and will talk to her then. BUT just in case anything develops sooner. And also just curious about others experiences. Thanks!!!
