Re: Question about fast labors
First baby--induced at 40 weeks 1 day. Induction started at 6 am, baby born at 1:30 pm. Progressed slowly til I got my epi about 11:30 am(which made me relax) and then I went 4 cm to 10 in under an hour and she was born not long after.
Second baby--38 weeks (and I know exactly the date of conception)--first contraction at 8 am and I didn't realize what it was at first. Baby born at 10:59 am. Barely made it to the hospital since it took DH 30 minutes to get to my work to pick me up, and it took us 25 minutes to get to the hospital. I got there and was 9 cm and bulging in triage. I completely freaked them out. Doc almost didn't make it.
Scared to death about any future labors.
IMO, in your shoes, I'd go early and deal with the hospital than risk it.
