  • I had my 2nd @ 41 1/2 weeks, I went into labor on my own. 12 hours later my dd was born which is 1/2 the time it took with my first (26 hrs)

  • Well mine is sort of different
    1. yes way earlier-38 weeks with dd#1, 32 weeks with #2 &3, identical girl twins
    2. yes, I was schedualed for a c-sect the following day for dd#1 but she decided to come on Tuesday rather than Wednesday
    3. dd#1 was a c-sect, twins were 4 hours
    4. can't compare 1 and 2.

  • My second was born at 40 weeks exactly.
    She was 5 days later than my first.
    I did go into labor on my own with my second.
    Labor was 8.5 hours from start of contractions to giving birth.
    My first was a scheduled C-section, so my second was my only labor.

  • summerdaile... if you were in labor all night with your first then how was your second labor not shorter? Was that 7a one day to 1p the next??

    I was induced both times but here is the info:
    Was it earlier than your first baby?
    1st baby 37 weeks, 2nd baby 38 1/2 weeks

    Did you go into labor on your own?
    nope but with the second I started dilating at 31 weeks (2cm) and was 5 cm by 37 weeks. I was anti-contraction meds but when it came time to actually have her, no... I did not go in to labor on my own. I was induced but only by breaking my water, no pitocin

    How many hours was your labor?
    2 1/2 with my first and 4 1/2 with my second

    Was it shorter than your first?
    nope
