Was it faster than your first? My labor with my son was 18 hours from the time my water broke to his birth. I really hope this one is way faster.

I would say my 2nd delivery was definitely faster. With my daughter I admitted at midnight (induced) on 4/20 had her at 222am 4/21. My son I went the hospital at 5 am 4/5 they actually started to induced me at 9/10 am had him 456pm on 4/5 didn't have hard labor until after they broke my water he was born 4 1/2 hours later give or take. While after they broke my water with my daughter she was born 8 hours later give or take.

First was around 16 hours.
Second was about 2 1/2 hours start to finish. But it was also an induction at 41+3. So he pretty much came flying out of there.

1st was 34 hours, but only 9-10 hours from waterbreaking to delivery. 

2nd was 13 hours from water breaking to delivery but I was on pitocin for 8 of those hours because I wasn't contracting on my own.

Mine were about the same but my second labor felt tougher, probably because I was awake for all of it lol and I labored much, much longer at home.  Recovery was so much easier though!

My 1st was 15 1/2 hours from water breaking to birth. My second was 6 hours from water breaking til birth but the nurse accidentally broke it the second time. I was also having painful contractions for over 24 hours at that point. I didn't feel any contractions before my first.

My first labor was 51 hours long. My second labor was 11 hours long. So yes, it was significantly shorter. My second was my shortest labor of all four.
