Bitch ;) Just kidding, my labor with my first was 27 hours! I've always heard it is shorter the second round, you better be sitting on the hospital/birthing center steps!!
My first was 16 1/2 hours..my second and third (both induced) were 4 1/2 hours each.
Impossible to say.It could be 70 hours... that does happen.
It might be wise to plan a homebirth if you're not already, or at the least be prepared for one.
FYI: "Emergency Childbirth"
Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

Mine was 11 hours from induction to baby. And it was a pretty easy labor.
Quoting true-love-21:I was induced (swiped membranes) then I went in to the hospital and they monitered me, said my contractions were not progressing so they had to break my water and that's when the real pains started lol
Oh, well if you are planning a normal labor this time then you have much less to worry about!Are you having any complications again?
