We've had a couple of really, REALLY fast births in our ddc. I'd like to know just how long your first birth was if you experienced a "speedy delivery" in later births. Humor me, please.

#1: 12 hours, 1 hour of pushing
#2: 3 hours, 5 minutes of pushing
#3: 11 hours, 5 minutes of pushing
#4: 56 hours, 5 minutes of pushing. This is a little deceptive because actual hard labor was about 8 hours long, but it was 56 hours between my water breaking and the baby being born, and there were plenty of contractions in there, believe me. They just weren't so bad that I couldn't function.
#5: No labor - emergency c/s
#6: 4 hours, 5 minutes of pushing...okay, that's wishful thinking, I haven't had #6 yet.
