When I go into labour now, I GO TO THE HOSPITAL! No waiting around for me!
With my first, my water broke and contractions started a minute apart straight away. I was in the delivery room for 4 mins when my son was born, (2820g, 5 weeks early)
My second labour was 7 hours- started with contractions, about 2 mins apart. I went to the hospital after 3 hours, they broke my water at the 6 hour mark, and baby was born an hour after that - 7 hour labour, (4460g 3 days early)
My 3rd labour started by my water breaking, and contractions 45 sec apart - they were excruciating. Baby was born 1 hour 13 mins after the water broke. (4600g, 10 days early)
With this one, if my water breaks, I am going to the hospital, I have heard that a 4th labour happens in about half the time as the third - I will let you know in a few weeks if this is the case.
