I was in labor for only an hour with my son...will I have another fast delivery this time?

In 2005 I had my daughter and was in labor 18 hours. I got pregnant again 5 months later and had my son in 2006. I felt my first contraction at 9:50 am and delivered him at 10:52 am. Once I got to the hospital I was already fully dialated so they refused to give me an epidural. I had to deliver him naturally and was in terrible, terrible pain. Im pregnant again and TERRIFIED that the labor will go too fast for me to get drugs...lol. I even switched doctors so I can deliver at a hospital 15 minutes away from my home so we can get there fast when the time comes. Do I have a high chance of delivering really fast again?
