My first was 2.5hrs, second was induced, about 6hrs of pre-labour then baby flew out in about half an hr? Then third bub was 52mins.
I don't think you can base your decision on other peoples labour lengths, but as a general rule (not always!) labours tend to get quicker each pregnancy. I wouldn't not travel for Xmas bases on fear of labour, but then I'm quite happy to home birth too

#2 was 45 mins, AFTER they told me I wasnt in labour. Had been having contractions for 2 hours prior but they weren't registering on the ctg so they sent me away. Thankfully I only went across the road. The midwife got a hell of a shock when I was back half an hour later saying I needed to push and 15 mibs later out she came. She was born at 38+4
#4 was 23 minutes. Was getting contractions for a bit and due to my history of fast labours they made me come in straight away even though the contractions werent overally strong. Got to hospital and they stopped completely. Then over an hour later they started again and she was out in 4 contractions. She was 39+5
He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)

My first was 4 hours after AROM in hospital (39+4). My second was 45mins from first contraction to him being born (37+1) - HOWEVER my waters had spontaneously broken 8 hours prior. The hospital sent me home because I "wasn't" in labour. Sure enough I got home, had a few painful contractions, felt like pushing, and had him on the lounge room floor. Should be interesting to see how baby number 3 plays out
