FAST, intense labors...tell me about yours! - Page 3

post #41 of 42
My first baby came after about 6 hours of labour and then number 2 decided 90 minutes was long enough. It was very intense and felt like being hit by a truck again and again. I wasn't as tired as with the first time, but it happened in the middle of the night so there wasn't much sleep happening LOL Baby #3 gave us about 6 hours notice again and that was just about right. I was tired but felt more engaged with what was going on and less overwhelmed.

With the fast labour my midwife wasn't able to arrive in time and I would have felt better having her with me while I laboured and birthed. The friend we had arranged to care for ds didn't arrive in time either so my dh was having to contain a toddler who needed care and attention while supporting and assisting me to give birth. We are very relieved when it was all over and everyone finally pulled into the driveway!

My second born was a very, fast intense birth. From start to finish, it was 4 hours long.
It was intense, and drug free and I felt great afterwards. I really think it was the better way to go, my oldest took 22 hours and that was just a marathon!

I'm hoping baby #3 comes fast too.
