I've been asking women I know if the third baby comes faster than the first two, so far I've been told labor is alot faster each time. So the doctor wants me to get to the hospital as fast as I can with this one. My first, I was in labor for 9 hours, second, 5 hours Plus the fact that I'm having them so close together. any other third babylabor stories?

My third was pretty quick. Faster then my other two.



I went into labor at 2 pm got to the hospital and checked in by 5:30 and had her at 10:45 I believe.

My third labor was my longest. But I was also induced with her because my second was born 34 minutes after I got to the hospital.

My 3rd was very fast. I went into labor naturally at 37 weeks. I went to the hospital at around 9 am and had him at 1:40 pm.

Gah, I guess it's true then. I'd better get to the hospital fast I guess...

With my 3rd I went from 7 to 10 cm in 20 min. The dr had to tell me not to push since she was coming out too fast. . Good luck. :)

Im in the same post as you OP! With my first I was in labor a total of 1 hr and 45 minutes. And I live about 40 minutes form my hospital. The nurses told hubby if we ever get preggo again to take birthing classes cause he will probably be delivering at home or in the car!!
The bad part was I hadnt felt any contractions and was at a 3 when they checked me at my appt. 3 days later, I felt the first strong contraction, and I was almost a 7 when we got to the hospital!!

I just had my third in Oct, and yeah, it was faster...I went in for induction at 7, got it going at 10, water broke at 1 and she was out at 4.....she was out in 3 pushes, no tears, stiches, nothing...So yeah, she was pretty easy
