My first labor was 3 1/2 hours from start to finish (although honestly, it could have started before that and I just didn't know it -- I woke up at 4:00 AM, and Charlie was born at 7:20 AM). I don't know whether that was typical for me or whether this second one will take longer. But I do know that my mom's labor with my younger brother was precipitous (about 45 minutes total), so maybe this runs in our family.

I'm not worried about the midwives making it. They're only half an hour away, and honestly, even if they didn't make it on time, I think I'd be okay. I need them more for postpartum care than anything else.
