DD#1 was really early (8 weeks). She kicked me the wrong way and ruptured both the membranes and placenta. Luckily we only lived about 15 minutes from the hospital. I never had a contraction and was taken straight into emergency surgery. She spent 7 weeks in the NICU and turned 21 this past October.

Yes, much faster. 4 hours instead of 24.

9 1/2 hours with the first baby and 2 hours with the second baby .
The third baby was 5 hours. Each kid was out in 2 pushes.

Although the second labor was shorter it was also much harder.
