    First labor 3.5 hours to fully then 3 hours pushing

    Second labour

    56 minutes with about 5 minutes pushing.
    But I spent a good 20 minutes trying not to push in the ambulance on the drive to hospital

    I love this thread! My #1 was active labour of around 8 hours. I stalled for 2 hours due to a number of reasons and did 2 hours of pushing. So really only 6 hours. I'm going for 4 hours this time maximum 😊

    @Mamasupial did you find that the shorter labour was more intense/painful than the first labour? I'm wondering if I'll be able to handle the pain as well if it's all happening in half the time.. I'm starting to think that having the long build up makes the pain more manageable for me, but then there is the exhaustion as well..

    I actually coped wayyyyyy better this time even though it was shorter. First time I screamed every contraction for hours. This time I only did during crowning.

    First time I had gas and morphine, this time no pain relief. Both hurt just as much.

    I HATED my first labour so I never understood people who enjoyed it but I honestly loved my second labour

    Do you still get a water birth?

    Oh ok! Wow! Was it still really painful even in the water? the only time I screamed in my previous labours was when I was pushing/during crowning.

    I'm trying not to think about that part! I really hope I have a short labour this time like you did! And yes, hoping for water birth! My ob fully supports it, so as long as there are no complications, I can have a water birth.
