|And now the bills are coming in. Which is extra annoying because the only reason I bought health insurance, and got an extension of coverage, was to not have to deal with the bills if I had to go to the hospital.|

|And by the way..i had some back labor with ds..like an hour or two at the end....I can't imagine 30 hours of it...I absolutely wouldn't have made it that long..I wouldn't have made it THREE hours..seriously. If my back labor hadn't presented during late transition/pushing, I'd have been at the hospital.|
Well, all back labor isn't created equal. There's feeling contractions in your back and then there's feeling like your back IS BEING RIPPED APART. Neither is fun, but one extreme is definitely do-able longer than the other!
