My first was 8.5 hours from start to him being in the world. My second was 2.5 hours from start to her entering the world. I was induced both times so yes i know when it started. It will most likely be shorter but some have been known to go longer but it's not very common.

My second birth was way shorter than my first, but that doesn't mean that all second births are faster the the first ones. My mother had me in just over an hour, my brother 2 years later in around 2 hours or so, but my sister took just over 5 hours. Every birth is different. I hope it goes quickly for you though.

Myself my second labour was much shorter. My first was was 20 hours hard labour but technically was 8 days. My second was 3.5 hours from start to finish. Now my best friend.. her 2nd was much longer then her first. And her 3rd *twins* was much shorter then both. My twin sister her last child was longer then both her first added together. There is no telling if it will be longer or shorter :(. I hope its shorter for you!

Every pregnancy and labor/delivery is different. My first pregnancy was EASY, but the delivery part not so much. My second pregnancy was a bit much, but the DELIVERY WAS EASY!!!! I only had to push two or three times and she was out!!!

Best Wishes and congrats!!

You never know how long labor is going to take.. I was in labor for 4 1/2 hours with both of my kids.. every womans body is very different and you never know from one time to the next how long it will take.. I know i just relaxed and thing went fast... i did it with out any pain med's.. So if u like pain control I would not recomend having a short labor lol... with my son they broke my water and 15 mins later i was pushing no time for pain med... just something to keep in mind lol... Hope this is helpful.. Take Care and Very best wishes to you and you little one's....
