Overdue babies and short labors

So I've heard of extraordinarily short labors, and when people started telling me when my second baby went overdue that I might have a short labor, I didn't give it a second thought. Then, when I was just short of two weeks overdue, I had a two hour labor (my first was 9 hours). I'm wondering if, on average, overdue babies tend to have shorter labors.

Re: Overdue babies and short labors

My oldest was 3 days overdue. My labor with him was an hour and 20 minutes, start to finish.

My second and third were inductions at 39 weeks, and my second was a 13 hour labor, littlest was a 5 hour labor. This might very well be true.

Both my kids were almost two weeks overdue. First labor was 20hrs and second was 2hrs. I suppose it is true

My oldest was overdue and he was a 12 hour labor, my middle was early and he was 5 hours.
Baby #3 was overdue and she was 3 hours.

I think mine was short given family history and a 1st time labor. I was 10 days past my guess date. From the first time I felt a "real" contraction, labor was 13 hours. But only 5-6 were really intense. 44 minutes of pushing. At home, no meds.

Re: Overdue babies and short labors

My shortest labour was 1 hour 45min and she was born one day early (technically by my dates she was 5 days overdue but early scan put me back 6 days). She was #3 though. My first was my longest labour at 9 hours and he was 11 days overdue. My second was 5 hours, 5 days overdue.

Both of mine were early and I had short labors. Mine were born at 36w and 38w and my labors were 2hr 45m and 1hr 5m.
