Well, in the fact that my mom had manageable labor and births, with no drugs, yes. But her labors varied greatly in length and my brother and sister were very late (not really- more dating issues but they were 3 and 4 weeks late), I was born the day after my due date.
So my first labor was very typical, about 14 hours long from start to finish, arrived at the hospital at a 6, was completed by 7:30 and pushed for about an hour. My mom woke up in active labor and was sure the baby (me- her first) would come very quickly, she actually argued with my dad about taking her in, as he had a paper to turn in and wanted to do that first. Mom arrived complete and the OB nearly missed the catch! All within a few hours! My DD was 11 days past EDD, I was 1 day past EDD.
My second labor was much more like her first, I had spent the morning debating if I was really in labor or just having more braxton hicks. I was in the middle of the grocery store when I realized I had better go home, I was really in labor. That was about 4pm, by about 6pm we were back out to the hospital but contractions had never gotten regular or difficult. I arrived at 9cm, had two whopping contractions and the out popped DS!
My mom's second was totally different, fearing a precipitous birth, her OB told her to come in right away. So she did, but she was only dilated to a like a 2, and so they had her walk the halls, etc. She ended up laboring for about 24 hours, and in says in retrospect she should have just gone home. They did break her water to hurry my brother along. My DS was born on his EDD, my brother was about a month (!!) late.
With her third, my mom woke up in the middle of the night and realized she was in labor. She spent several hours laboring on her own, not wanting to be in the hospital for 24 hrs. like she was with my brother, then had trouble waking my Dad who had been at a New Year's Party
and they left about two hours later, once my uncle arrived to watch us. My sister was born a couple hours after they arrived, again no complications or problems. My sister was born about 3 weeks late, but again, it was dating issues. They both seemed to be about full term, the OB estimated them to both be about 40 weeks, not very post term babies.
I've got about 11 weeks to go on my third, so I'll let you know how this one compares!
