    That has not been my experience at all! My boy came the quickest out of all of them.  There are many factors which affect labor. With my Son, as soon as I went into labor, I walked and walked until birth was imminent. I went to the hospital, and he came less than 45 minutes later.

    Sometimes, boys can be larger than girls at birth, which can account for a longer labor if the mother is smaller.
