    Default How short was your next labour?

    Those that have had a short labour then had another baby, how short was the next labour?

    DD2 was 2 hours from first contraction til birth. Just curious as to how much shorter on average everyone's next ones were.

    Not short in comparison to most, however I was induced earlier with all by just over a week (I have been told if I go naturally it'll be much faster again)

    Anyway...

    1st - 7 hrs
    2nd - 3 hrs
    3rd - 4 hrs

    So all different and order didn't seem to have much to do with it

    My first was 36 hours long from first proper regular contraction to baby.

    My second was 2 hours 15 minutes from SROM to babe in arms.

    I was not expecting to have a baby the same day I went into labour second time around! She surprised us all!?

    DS was induced but about 7ish hours all up.

    DD was 2.5 hours from first pain until baby was born.

    A few thoughts on this. DS was slightly posterior and not necessarily optimal position. DD was in optimal position, and I was at least 3cm dilated about 3 or 4 days before labour.

    On discussions regarding labour with midwife/ob they advised me as long as there were no issues with positioning etc baby no 2 would be a fast labour (I was advised to call an ambulance if waters broke) as it can halve (due to quicker pushing).

    We are not having a 3rd but we were joking that I would have a baby at home or camp out in the hospital carpark.

    Eta - my DD was born with membranes intact and my water never broke. I do wonder if it would've been faster if waters broke.

    First was 6 hours from first contraction to birth. 2 minutes pushing.

    2nd was 50 minutes from start to baby in arms.. I was induced via artificial rupture of membranes. So I was super glad my membranes didn't rupture spontaneously, I'd have had my babies at home!

    All these make me nervous! My fist was 4 hours spontaneously at 37 weeks - first I knew was when my waters broke, then the contractions started. I pushed for around 45 mins.

    I'm now 32 weeks with my second and so nervous about not making it to the hospital.
