  • With my first son I got to the hospital and had been crowning for sometime and was ready to push. Wiht my second I was 9 cm dialated. But from start to finish I was in labor for about an hour longer with my first son because it took us an hour to get to the hospital. But every person and every pregnancy is different too. I was lucky both times. My boys were born 1: in 30 minutes and 2: 1 hour from when I arrived at the hospital.

  • My sister has 5 kids and her labors got longer with each one. Everyone is different though- because I think in most cases you go quicker with your second. But you just don't know until it happens.

  • My first was 11hours
    my 2nd was 7 1/2 hours
    but i waited a long time at home. My water broke on the toilet and i had to call the ambulence ,
    by the time we got to the hosp. the baby's head was crowning and I kept saying, I gotta push!! lol
    i had her in 5 mins.
    i was told to go to the hosp. earlier this
    my midwife says it might come faster not to wait.

  • Just look at it as a completly different pregnancy. It could happen, but don't be shocked if it doesn't. My first one was induced, only 8 hours, second one 6, but my third my water was broken for twenty four hours in the hospital before I had her, my fourth was about 8 hours too. I don't think they were to crazy fast but I will say delivery was very unique.
