You can't think how happy that makes me feel.
With DS1, I was in hard back labor (10 minutes apart) for 48 hours; 3-4 minutes apart 1.5-2 minutes long hard contractions for 34 hours.
With DS2, I was in labor for 24 hours, if you start counting from 10 minutes apart and too painful for me to sleep; maybe 12-15 hours from when the contractions were under 5 minutes apart.
I'm 38 weeks and not the slightest bit dilated or effaced. I'll take 7 hours! Heck, I'd take 17 hours...
