View Full Version : Length of labour with second bubs
Just out of curiosity...
I know on average most labours get shorter, but how long was labour with your second bub? :confused:
Sorry mods, can I add a poll or is it too late? :doh:
My first was 3hr 20 mins
Second was 45 mins
So quicker here for sure.
Bit worried about third:p
Add a poll, choose thread tools.
My labour for Cobey was slighty augmented by have them break my waters when I was 4cm.. he was born an hour later after a very intense contraction-on-top-of-contraction labour.
However there was zip zero no intervention for Eva's birth and it was probably 8 hours from active labour (I don't know for sure because I had no VEs... so from when I had to work in my contractions)
I was at the hospital longer with Cobes though :p
hi all with my first it was 6 and a half hours i was induced they reckon that makes it take longer or some crap
second was 3 and half hours and that was from my water breaking had contractions tho for only 2 hours
Thanks Seekrit, I had no idea that was there!!! ;)
My labour with DD was 31 hours and very traumatic, culminating with five hours at final stage, lots of vomiting, an assisted delivery, a PPH and a night in ICU. Couldn't hold my baby for 2.5 hours after she was born because I couldn't control my arms and it took from 9pm to 11.30pm to stitch me up.
Haven't had number 2 yet but am having dreamy visions of a lovely, drug-free six-hour labour with a peaceful ending and a baby that breastfeeds happily straight away. Will keep you posted! :D
I was induced with both so not sure if that makes the times count as much but my second labour was about 25 mins shorter
DD was 5 hrs 45 mins
DS was 5 hrs 20 mins
From waters broken to baby in my arms!
1st Labour 46hours
2nd labour 21 hours
Both were posterior presentation that turned anterior at the start of 2nd stage.....
1st labour 2nd stage..2 minutes..2 pushes
2nd labour 2nd stage...1 minute..2 pushes
3rd labour...anytime now..posterior again...dr said i could get down to 18 hrs!!
2nd definatley shorter than 1st labour
1st was 14 hours from start to finish - 7 hours est labour
2nd was 9 hours from start to finish - 4 hours est labour
Unfortunately over 10 hours for both before intervention. Had a C-section & vaccuum extraction. Had epidurals both times because I couldn't deal with the contractions. I've actually wondered if it would have been different without the epi, maybe shorter, maybe longer. I'm scared again for my 3rd labour, thinking about a planned caesar. I feel like a wuss, but.....:o
my second labour was almost 18 hours longer than my first :(
Boof was 39hrs as far as the hospital is concerned but it was a good 50hrs & thats without pre-labour ....
With G I apparently had no labour as far as the hospital is concerned as I only arrived there in time for him to make his arrival lol but it was 19hrs ... Again not including pre-labour !
So yep definitely shorter here but I think thats also because G was in the right position whereas Boof was posterior :dizzy:
My first labour was 3 hours and my second labour was 15 minutes, all a bit quick for my liking lol
Midwifes were shocked at how quick it all happened and so was i, i'd hate to see how quick the 3rd one is - that is if there is a 3rd lol

My first was 4hrs
Second was 2hrs
