  • Labor varies with each and every delivery. There is no way to answer this question for you.,..sorry

    With my 1st, it was roughly 10hours, with my 2nd, it was 23hours...just goes to show that 2nd, 3rd, 4th labors are not necessarily shorter then 1st

  • With all mine they lasted about the same amount of time give or take an hr.

  • My mom's 4th went fast! She started contractions around 0700 and by 0900 she was having them a good 20 min apart. But then she jumped from 15 min apart right to 7 min apart, no in between. It was only about another hour and a half before the birth was over. She was also 42 at the time and it had been 10 years since her last birth. I guess it really just depends.

  • I always heard your 2nd is faster but im not sure....My mom had 5 kids and she said labor was about the same with all of them. I was really worried about my son because I was induced with my daughter at 10am and she was born at 1:45 and i thought i wouldn't have enough time to get to the hospital.
