Labor with my first went by so fast. I had barely made it to the hospital before she had came out. She came out 5-10 mins later. With my second it was the same I had gotten there about 8 and he was born at 10:12. It was a little longer but faster then most people.


Generally second or third labors will be shorter than the first labor because the body already delivered a baby before and already knows what to do. There are so many factor involved in labor, factors that are constantly changing. The position of your baby has a lot to do with the length of labor.
