    DD1: approx 4 hours
    DD2: 47 mins (breech)
    DD3: 13 mins (water ruptured spontaneously, and she started coming straight away)
    DD4: 48 mins
    DD5: 66 mins
    DD6: 51½ hours (including 6 hours of excrutiating agony)
    DD7: 90 mins (my perfect homebirth)

    All the above are timed from first contraction until baby emerges. Add about half an hour to each to allow for delivery of the placenta as well.

    With DD6, as soon as the water ruptured she came out in three contractions. It is my opinion that perhaps a manual rupture of the waters would've saved me a lot of pain.

    #1 - 12 hours from first contraction
    #2 - 45 mins from first contraction
    #3 - was told I was having prelabour/Braxton hicks contractions and sent home from hospital after about 3 hours of mild contractions. Bub was posterior so would be at least 12 hours away... Was born an hour later in the ambulance..

    You just can't judge it. Each baby, and each delivery is different.
    Good luck with yours :-)
