I had to be induced with all three of mine, two for medical reasons, and once because she just didn't want to come out. From the time the my first induction started to the time my daughter was born was 8 hours, almost all of it hard labor. I thought it would be so much worse!
My water broke at 3.42am... However contractions didn't start for 5 hours. I was in "active" labor for 6.5 hours and then pushed for an hour. The only reason for that was my sons hand was next to his cheek so I had to push very slow not to tear,which worked:)
3 days of labor, but i also stayed in the hospital bed and did not do anything to help speed the labor along. so whatever you do....DONT STAY IN BED, get up and walk, take a shower, sit on an exercise ball
