    Delivery of 2nd baby

    Was the delivery of your 2nd baby much quicker than your first. My first came out 2 weeks early - hear that 2nd babies are normally easier and quicker - is this true?

    Of course there are exceptions but in a normal delivery second plus babies are generally quicker, which makes it easier. In my personal experience my first was much longer (36 hours) than the second (just short of 5 hours start to finish) but a lot of that has to do with being induced the fisrt time when my body was not at all close to going naturally

    I was incredibly lucky. Labour was very quick - around 1 hour - and pushing even quicker!

    Since my first one came out 2 weeks early (labour pains plus pushing under 4 hrs), what is the chance that the second one will come out even earlier than 2 weeks?
