Was your 2nd labor quicker than your 1st and was the baby bigger? I have been told that 2nd babies are usually bigger yet girls are supposed to be smaller. This is my 2nd pregnancy and she is a girl.

Baby one was 24 hours and 6lbs 15oz and a girl
Baby two was 12 hours and 7lbs 5 oz and a boy. We'll see in a few months if the trend continues.

I didn't have labor with number 2 or 3. Baby boy one was 7lbs 12ozs. Baby boy 2 was 8lbs 4 oz and a week early. Baby three girl was between three and four weeks early and she was 7lbs and 10ozs.

1st was induced so not sure...

#1 Girl, induced 1wk early, 6.14lbs.. 9hrs labor (from water being popped to birth)

#2 Boy, natural, 8.12lbs. 7-8hrs labors... My water popped on its own at home around 11pm, contractions where easy until about 4am, delivered at 7:30a. (I think I would have had him quicker if I didnt have to drive to Birthing Center & could have just birthed at home.
