1st 42+2 weeks took 24h.
2nd 40+3 weeks took 5,5h and barely made it to the hospital.
3rd 40+4 weeks took about 9h. I was so nervous from the second labour that I went to the hospital quite early. I have about 18-20 months between the kids

I've heard that if you halve the length of your last labour that is a good estimate of how long your next will be. Of course it is far from being certain, but if you had a short labour last time I'd head on in quite quickly with your next labour.
My 1st was about 6 hours, 2nd was 9ish hours (so for me the halving thing wasn't right) and my 3rd was 51 minutes.
Everyone said that the 3rd baby/labour was the wild card and that was the case for me!

I'm glad somebody did this question! Because I literally did 3 pushes in less than 5min with my first baby. I wonder what can I expect with my second.
Labor was 7 hours (active labor between 30 min to 1 hour)

My two labors were totally different.

First was a c-section because he was breech. Lost my plug in the morning and freaked out because it was my first and I really wasn't awake! Called the doc and he said to go to the hospital and get checked out. Told DH that I would call if necessary. He went on to work - lol. Called him at work and told him to get to the hospital. We waited for the doc to arrive then DS was born. No issues. He was a week early.
Second was a vbac. Was in labor for about 12 hours after my water broke that morning at home. Told the doc that I wanted him born that day - no way I wanted him born after midnight because that would have made his b-day on April Fool's day. Once labor got moving, it went pretty fast. Almost didn't get the epidural because it progressed so fast. He was a week late.
No two babies are the same, no two pregnancies are the same. Good luck!

It any of you got pitocin in the labor process? I went to the hospital with my water broke but no contraction at all so they gave me pitocin. So I wonder if this could influence for my second pregnancy if I don't get pitocin this time.
Ps. I think pitocin was the drug they gave me but I am not sure now
Anyway it was something to try to induce contractions and was a tablet that they inserted in the vagina.
