  • The average first labor lasts 14 hours. The average second labor lasts 8.

    But everyone is different. Good luck :)

  • Mine was, my first lasted 22 hours and my second 11. But not for everybody, my moms second was a lot longer than the first and her 3rd was longer than the second.

  • It was for me, the birth of my first child was traumatizing but the second was a cake walk!

  • My son was 24 1/2 hours and my daughter was 3 hours. Everyone is different. For me it was super fast. Thankfully!

  • For me yes-- my 1st I went into labor early Monday morning and then the next afternoon they finally took him by C-section. My 2nd was a planned C-section.
