Quick question, with my 1st child my labor was 2 hours, then 2 hours of pushing. Is your labor usually shorter with with your 2nd child?

Well the old saying was true for me. My first was 26 hrs, my second was only 6 hours. I told dh that I bet this one will only take me 3-4.  *hopeful wishing*


Do you live far from the hospital?

I live about 10 miles from the hospital, so no, not far. With my 1st they inducde me becuase he (the baby) was unresponsive. They gave me that cervical gel to induce, but that was only in for about 10 min and my sons heart rate dropped really low, so they quick rinsed the gel out. I haden't even had a contraction at that point. They wanted to wait 2 hours to monitor him before they started pitocin, then they wanted to break my water before they started that. So I actually never got the pitocin, they just broke my water, and 2 hours later I was pushing. I hope it goes as easy this time, except for the tearing. I ended up with 4th degree tearing due to it going so fast (I think).

Well it's clear isn't it? You're going to be one of those mommys who have their babies in the toilet and don't realize till they try to pull up their pants!!!!lol just kidding lol..

Your labor might actually take longer since it was so fast the first time..

My labor with my 1st was 42 mins, my 2nd was 1 hour and my 3rd was 13 mins! So, it varies with every pregnancy.
