im a little nervous,
I was in labor 23 long hours with my first child.
with my second I was in active labor 6 hrs,
and with my third, I had a c-section due to her being breech.
I am now pregnant with my fourth, and wondering if my labor will go quicker.
Any mommies out there have any insight?

From what my mother said about haven mmore babies and the labor not being as long as the one before it does uaully work like that. I was her 5th baby, and she was in labor with me for 45 minutes. Pretty easy she said.

I was in labour around 36 hours with my first, and when I mentioned that to my doctor (she was on maternity leave when I was pregnant and in labour the first time around) she was amazed, but assured me that this time around it should go much faster!

36 hours wow, your a trooper lol, & i thought i had it rough. :P
Hopefully it will go alot quicker for you this time around,
like i said my second only took about 6 hours of labor, but she was also face up so I think it would have taken alot less time if it wasnt for that. But good luck!
