    I counted from my waters breaking, which was right on 9am, until she was out at 10.50am. There was no sign of labour before my waters broke. I was in bed having a coffee and felt like one of those dolls where you put water in a bottle and it runs through them and they wee lol, it was a bit trippy.

    I count from when my waters broke because I didn't know the period like pains I was feeling was actually labour - but that had been happening on and off for a few days. So my labour was 26 hours from my waters breaking until my emergency c/s. I was only in unbearable pain for about 8 of those hours though.

    On DD my waters broke but i didnt start contracting untill about 4 hrs later- from waters breaking to bub out it was 46 hours... I say that was the lenght of my labour.

    On DS i got a period like pain at 12:30 am then at 1 waters broke, contractions got tough at 2:30 and he was born at 3:20am! So i count the labour starting when waters broke 2 hrs 20 mins!

    With DD from first pain to baby was 36 hours from bad intense contractions was 24 hours, from waters breaking to baby was 5 minutes!!!

    With DS from first pain 5 hours from bad intense contractions.... Well compared to DD they weren't that bad but if I had to say the last hour was a little more intense!!! From waters breaking to baby was 24 hours and 13 minutes

    I probably should have mentioned that waters breaking was my very first sign of labour and contractions followed soon after.

    20 secs would have to be a record

    If I counted from first pain to birth 5 days. But from intense regular contraction to birth 70 hours. Not much better hey! But there were complications.

    I really don't think there is anyway you can predict how long. Just be prepared for anything and stay open.

    Hahah because then I'd be telling ppl I was in labour for three days - when really my waters just broke and nothing else happened for two days until I was induced! Might still use it against DD though eg "clean your room now, you know I went through three days of labour for you so you have to do whatever i ask" etc lol

    Yeah i can see in some instances why, i was thinking more people who are having regular, noticeable contractions but don't consider it part of the labour.
