Faster 2nd labors are true for me and my 3rd labor was even faster. With Katelynn my water broke at home and she was born exactly 4 hours later. I was at the hospital less than 30 minutes before i was holding her. I did not have time for an epi. Especially because they require a full bag of fluids and a cbc before they will allow you to have one. Her birth changed me. I never felt so amazing. Im not saying others dont feel the same but I really felt empowered. Obviously since Everett was born at home there was no options for pain relief in the form of medications but my labor with him was 53 minutes. I have taken morphine before not for labor and I dont like the way it makes me feel. But again these are just my opinions and my thoughts.
