Almost 3 days and then I slept for about 16 hrs. I was in the hospital and could not sleep at all.

Two days for me, too. And even at that, I am not myself. Funny, I posted this same question before I read yours!

probably just under 48 hours. Waited and waited for my cousin (like a brother to me) to have his 1st set of twins born. OH it took forever but was so well worth the wait!

I did not sleep for 36 hours and I could not continue that as I felt slightly sleepy. These 36 hours, I was doing one work or the other. Mostly I was involved in the exhibition display work and that had to be completed by night. The work went on from early morning, through afternoon, through night and next day evening. But then I slept for 20 hours after the event.

About the same amount of time as you but perhaps in the 50 some odd hour range, which I attempted just over ten years ago.
