Tell Mommy: How Long Were You in Labor?

The time spent in labor is often looked at as a badge of honor, but no matter how long it took to bring her bundle of joy into the world, some mamas feel entitled to bragging rights. My girlfriend is nearing her due date and has been asking everyone she knows how long their laboring process was; she's gotten answers from 30 minutes to 48 hours. If you're expecting, you'll probably hope yours will be on the shorter side, but for those who have already delivered — how long was your labor?
