1st Labour 8hrs from first contraction to giving birth
2hrs of pushing ( 1hr of on off pushing and 1 hr of serious pushing) and had an episiotomy (and threat of forceps which was what gave me the strength to finally get him out Laughing )
2nd labour 23 minutes from having waters broken at 2 cms to giving birth
Pushed about 2-3 times baby shot out, no cuts no tears Very Happy
Definately a lot quicker for me Laughing

My daughter 13 years ago 5 hour labour and she weighed over 9lb.
My son 17 hours labour and he was 7lb and back to back.

So for me my second was longer.

Stories like that terrify me - my first labour was only 5 hours, and he was back to back! He gushed out in one giant push with waters and everything!

My next is meant to be a booked c-section at 39 weeks (son came at 38!) and I just know that if I go into natural labour earlier than planned this time they are never going to get their arses in gear to do a c-section in time - she's going to pop out! Very Happy Be lucky if I get to hospital I reckon! Not that it really bothers me - I kind of prefer the idea to a c-sect anyway! Very Happy x

Obviously I don't know the answer to that, but my sisters subsequent births were all faster, SIL how ever hers was longer as he was back to back xx

My 3rd was back to back and was longer than my second, but still only 4hrs start to finish Question
I did stall for a while at 6cm but the midwife was really good and had in me in some strange positions to turn her and once she turned she shot out Laughing so even with a back to back baby its not always a marathon labour Smile
She was still quicker than my first and easier I'd say Question
Knowing what i know now I'd have done a lot of positioning before labour though Laughing
