As far as I know, these are correct. If you have a stat that belongs here, please let me know! I'm anal retentive and I like things to be accurate whenever possible. Thanks!

Good question about length of labor... I had contractions on/off for 4 days, but my active labor (dilated 4 cm) was only 38 minutes... so I could be longest or shortest!

Oooh, pushing time--that would be another cool stat! I pushed for 18 minutes, LOL!

Everyone defines "length of labor" differently, and I think that's as it should be. I counted my labor time (6 hours) from the moment that I first knew I was really in labor (when I started tossing my cookies ); that made the most sense to me, because I'd been having regular, strong contractions for several weeks before that, and I'd been dilated to three cm as well.

If you guys want to count pushing time, I don't have a problem with that. I'm probably not going to do a major update again until this weekend (it's much easier for me on the weekends because the kids are less likely to interrupt), so you'd have plenty of time to get that info to me.

I thought I'd PMed you, but who knows -- it's been crazy around here! I think I should have the earliest labor stat, since Meade was born at 36 w 1 day (the one you have listed currently is 36 w 4 days).
