    Default How short was your next labour?

    I've had 2 inductions past EDD and both were about 16 hours from first contraction after gel inserted to Bub in arms. Not really indicative of anything because it was an induction. Hoping for a short spontaneous labour this time

    Honestly I don't know when I was in active labour. As soon as I started contractions they were back to back.

    A friend of mine had a 1 hour labour with her first and 2 hours with her second. I am so jealous. Mine was 20 hours.

    A friend of mine had a 60 minute labour first time (born in hospital corridor). Her second labour was 15 hours!!!! She was taken aback to say the least.

    Mine are hard to compare as I was induced first time around. From ARM to DS arriving was 7 hours 40 minutes. 7 hours 20 minutes of that was intense labour. From first pain to DD's arrival was 8 hours 45 minutes. But I'd only consider 4 hours 45 minutes of that to be intense labour, so it felt shorter and damn sight easier!!!

    Default How short was your next labour?

    If we go from whenever labour was established according to hospital my first was 16 hours. But I was almost 6cm when I went in so I I'd say closer to 20.

    Agree about positioning, DS was posterior, DD was LOL which is one of the optimal positions for Bub to be in

    If we're talking active labour, then:

    #1 - 10 hours
    #2 - 4 hours

    This is from 4cm til birth

    That would qualify as active labor
