Just over an hour - homebirth, and a relatively long time between births because I wasn't really having contractions at that point.  Just took a break to rest and decided when I was ready to push.  Baby B's sac was intact up until I started pushing and my midwife ruptured it.

20 minutes-homebirth   Probably would have been a few minutes longer except when I was feeling B's head come down I felt cord (LOL it was his sister's cord from her when she was delivered).  So I felt the cord and pushed like a maniac until feeling the clamp on the end of the cord.  Then I slowed back down and let my body do the work.  I had about 10 minutes of no contractions after the birth of baby A.

14 minutes,
nice and calm, kinda wish it had been a tad more, but the docs were getting fussy and I wanted them to leave me alone, so I moved things along to get their hands and all the monitors off me

partners.gif 2twins.gif  So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!

1 minute! huh.gif  My first baby was born and the second one followed straight down the birth canal.  It took the doctor by complete surprise.  Everyone said they had never seen such a quick delivery of twins.

25 minutes.  Baby B turned transverse and had to be turned.  Luckily she went to head down but decided her arm was the first thing to present.  So once they moved that outta the way we waited for contractionds and out she came.   I didnt have to push long with her.  And honestly - I didnt realize that it was so long. When I found out the intervals between the births I was shocked!

2 hours and 3 minutes.  I'm glad there's not a law against it, too, because I was so thrilled that they were allowed to come at their own pace as long as there were no signs of distress!  It was so nice to have half and hour of no contractions to just enjoy bonding with baby A and getting to know him!  What a precious time that was!

8 minutes.  Enough time for 2 contractions, scraping back pain as she dropped down posterior, and one push.  :)
