sudden delivery

I had stillbirth at 38 weeks, and was induced.  I was labor for an estimated 17 hour, during which I was 2cm dilated until I was ready to deliver.  Is this normal?

Yes, your body can stay dialated at a certain stage for a long time then suddenly dialate to the full 10 cm.  

I'm sorry for your loss. I, too, had a stillborn at 38 weeks several years ago. In my case it was due to a tight nuchal cord.  He had the umbilical cord around his neck twice so tight that it cut off the blood flow.

To answer your question;
Labor varies from woman to woman. My labor was fairly short but my sister recently went through a very long labor, nearly 30 hours and barely dilated at all for the first 24 hours.
