DC1 24hrs at 40+14
DC2 12hrs at 40 + 10
DC3 planned c-section at 38weeks
DC4 36 hours at 40+8

Times are from first contractions. DC4 was a ridiculously long and uncomfortable first stage but then had a sprint finish at the end, went from 2cms to arrival within an hour.

Fourth was an hour and thirteen minutes from first twinge to delivery. I say twinge, it didn't really even hurt, was like pulling. So that would explain why DH ended up delivering him!

My times were all from established labour except DC 3, that was from first pain, I arrived at hospital 7cm and she was born two hours later
First two I had slow labour for days

DD1 - 14hrs SORM
DS1 - 19hrs - induction
DS2 - 6hrs - SORM
DD2 - 14hrs - Broke Waters
DS3 - 35 minutes...... waters never broke and he was born in his sack. Contractions started at 1.30am, he was born at 3am. shock

Ds1 - 12 hours, but they broke waters and sped up labour
Ds2 - 8 hours
Dd1 - Twinges all day. Midwife arrived at home at 6:30pm. Born at 9:30pm.
Dd2 - Had sweep and accidentally broke waters at 2:30pm. Mild contractions started straight away. Midwife arrived at 6pm. Hanging on for second midwife (by God that hanging on was awful)....dd2 born at home at 7:30pm.

It's difficult to give exact times as I'm a slow burner! I know the day before as I start to go to the loo a lot and have mild twinges.

DD1 - 22 hours
DD2 - 1 hour 45 minutes
Ds1 - four hours
DD3 - about 1 hour 15 minutes.
