How long were your stages in your labour/s?


iv been told they tend to get shorter, my labour with my 1st was v quick.
Surely it couldnt been quicker than that

2-10cm 1 hr
pushing 2hr 10min(i know this reduces alot with 2nd)
3min for placenta after birth

no pain relief


Bit worried about not making it to hospital

DS1 it started slowly in the morning. then missed waters 9pm. was 4cm around midnight i think. he came 6am. hospital labour was 5 hours

DS2 felt like in labour for 2 weeks. always silly contractions. missed plug 5 days before he came. woke up in the 17th, we hurried to the hospital was 8cm. then it slowed down in the end.... so again 5 hours labour recorded in the hospital.

had more powerful contractions with DS1. had to push much more with DS1... in the end.... not sure which labour was better. but i cried the first 2 nights remembering DS2 labour. so maybe DS2 was more traumatizing for me. ps had not pain killers.

It could be quicker. I thought too there was no way my 2nd labor could be quicker then y first.
With ds1 from when i felt my first contraction till i had my son was about 5 hrs. I went to the hospital after midnight (4cm) and i was holding my son by 5am.
Actual pushing was minutes (pushed through 3 contractions)

Ds2. From first contraction to holding my son was only a few hrs.
Actual pushing time.. None
I only had to do a half push to get his shoulders out

I woke up with contractions every 5 minutes at 6am, got to the hospital by 8.30am and was admitted 2cm dilated. Went into active labor at 11am (4cm) then around two hours later my waters broke and I was 8cm. At 2pm I was ready to push and baby was born at 2.25pm. So from the time I woke up with contractions to her birth it was 8 and a half hours, but the active labor went by fairly quickly, which was the part that sucked the worst, so if next time goes faster than hey, even better

With my first I was literally 12 hours from the very first contraction to pushing out my baby.

With my second I was almost exactly 5 hours from the very first contraction to pushing him out. I got to the hospital after two hours of contractions and was 4cm. So it took three more hours to get to ten cm and push him out. Not sure how long I was pushing for.

I never had any of the slow build up mild contractions though. From the very first one with both I was in agony.

If your worried have you thought about a home birth??

Hmm well if you have gel to be induced wont you be in hospital anyway? It'll just be if you go into natural labour you'll just have to go straight to the hospital lol.

I was 2cm when I arrived at hospital at 11pm. By 2.30am, I was 9cm and started pushing at 3.30am. Max was born at 4.35am. My active labour was recorded as 3 hours, 45 minutes and he would have been born a lot sooner if he hadn't been stuck, as I had a forceps delivery.

Also quite anxious that my next could be quicker!

From the beginning to when I was pushing it was seventeen hours. Only two pushes which only took like literally two minutes. And the placenta came out straight after. I do hope my next labor is shorter, haha!
