Re: Labor Speed - How fast was your 1st vs 2nd, 3rd etc?

My first was 4.5 hours, started with water breaking, contractions started about 1/2 an hour later. I pushed for 53 minutes with her. Second labor was 2 hours, started with contractions, doctor broke my water and he was here 10 minutes later after 4 pushes. I was in the hospital 30 minutes before he was born. Third was 3 hours, started with water breaking, contractions started about 15 minutes later. It took 3 pushes to get her out.

We also live 30 miles from our hospital. With baby #3, the doctor stripped my membranes and suggested we stay in town for a while afterwards. We walked all over the mall for hours, drove around for a couple more and debated going home. Dd and ds were having a blast with grandma, so we decided to ge a hotel room near the hospital just in case. I'm glad we did because my water broke around 1 AM.

My sister had a 2 hour labor with her first, one hour with her second, and for her 3rd decided to deliver at her local hospital. Good thing, she didn't feel well at work so a co worker drove her to the hospital. They rushed her to a labor room and she delivered 3 minutes after getting to the hospital. There wasn't even a doctor there yet, just a nurse! Talk about crazy fast!

#1 was 8 hours
#2 was confusing b/c he was early. 45 minutes after pain he was born. Before that I was obviously in labor but no pains. They gave me 5 minutes of pitocin and I went from a 6.5 to 10 in less than 30 minutes.

Ds1- 14 hours from first tiny contraction. I was nervous and scared. I had my 38 wk appt that day and was dilated to 3 and 98% effaced. My dr encouraged me to stay overnight in the hospital since we didn't know how fast I would go and the hospital was 45 minutes away. Slept through most contractions that night, dr broke water at 7:20 the next morning and ds was born at 11:38 am

Ds2 - 14 hours from first twinge. I worked all day went to the hospital at 5:30 was dilated to 6. By 8 I was fully dilated but water was still intact. Dr walked in the room at 8:19 and ds was born at 8:26 with 4 pushes.

I had nubane with ds1 and nothing with ds2

DD#1, it was 25 hours. I went all natural with no interventions of any kind.
DD#2, it was a homebirth and the entire thing was 2 hours start to finish.

Re: Labor Speed - How fast was your 1st vs 2nd, 3rd etc?

Going from the time my water broke to my childrens' births....

DS1: Induction. Started pitocin at 7am. Water broke at 9:35am. Baby born at 7:04pm. So about 9 1/2 hours.

DS2: Water broke on it's own (on my due date) at 12:30pm. Baby born about 9pm. So, about 8 1/2 hours.

DS3: Water broke on it's own (on my due date) at 4:45am. Baby was born at 11:02am. So about 6hrs 15 minutes.

God bless!
