I am currently pregnant with my second baby. My first baby was born in under 3.5 hours (from first ever labour sensation - no Branxton Hicks or pre-labour) and the labour was very intense. It has been suggested to me by my care providers and others that this labour is likely (but obviously not guaranteed!) to be similar or faster in duration. I know that all labours and births are different, however I am just curious about other people's experiences.
So if you experienced a fast first labour, how did your second labour compare in length and intensity?
