    Substantially. Ds1 was a 10 hour labour ds2 was a 2 hour labour. Got to hospy 20 mins before he was born as I thought I had ages. Ds3 got a lil longer again at 4 hours. Hoping number 4 is quick again. Ds2 was a lot easier than ds1 too, a lot less painful and just easier to deal with.

    Sort of. I had to have ARM all 3 times due to failure to progress so my labour would start and stop. With DS1 all up from first contraction was 10 hours after a few it all stopped, waters were broken contractions ramped up and he was born 4 hours later. DS2 labouring for a few hours again it all stopped they broke my waters didn't have a contraction for 4 hours, finally they started and he was born 36 minutes later. DD1 laboured for a few hours at home went into the hospital and they died off, monitored for an hour with a few tightenings but nothing sufficient they broke my waters and they started instantly and she was born an hour later. So I guess the time of my labours did shorten as such.

    I guess about the same, except for the push stage, labour 1 was 5 hours of pushing but labour 2 was only 10-20mins.
