With my son I dilated pretty much bang on 1 cm an hour. After 8 hours of labour I was 8 cm. I saw my midwife for my 16 week appointment today and she's confident that this labour will be quick! My contractions with DS were so powerful to get me to progress that quickly as a first-time mum, I'm terrified how painful they'll be this time!

my first baby was 5 days early. My second was 2 weeks early. I kept waiting to go to the hospital until my contractions were 5 minutes apart for 2 hours straight - since that's what i was told to do with the first. I showed up to the hospital dilated completely, and she was born 10 minutes after we walked into the door. Completely different labor experience!

My 3rd labor was also completely different from the first two. My contractions never were consistent, and they weren't ever that intense. My labor lasted for a few days, on and off, and eventually when i went to the hospital they just broke my water and she was born 2 hours later. Every labor seems to be different!
