I'm totally jealous...

So, we went to visit some friends of ours this afternoon who were expecting their first child. When we left their house at 3pm, the mom-to-be was complaining of a few cramps here and there, nothing special. Around 7:45pm, we got a text message from the dad-to-be that she was 5cm dilated, her water had just broken, and they were at the hospital. We just received a text message that her little girl was born at 8:21pm.

This means her TOTAL labor was no longer than 6 hours, and she dilated 5cm AND pushed a baby out in about 30 mins.

Compare this to MY labor story (upwards of 30 hours), and you can understand why I'm more than a little jealous.

Congratulations to the happy new family!
