    Hi ladies!

    Obviously I know every woman and birth is different but I'd love to hear your experiences-- for those of you with 3+, how did your third labor and delivery compare to the first 2?

    My first was born at 40+6, 15 hrs of very active labor and 1 hr pushing.
    My second was born at 39+5, lots of erratic contractions leading to about 3 hours of active labor and 4 minutes of pushing (he was born 9 minutes after we got to the hospital!)

    I'm 16 weeks (tomorrow) with baby 3 and can't wait to see how this one gets here!

    I'm pregnant with my 3rd to. With my 1st baby I was induced at 42weeks and with my 2nd baby i was induced at 41weeks as they were worried that he was small, however he turned out normally weight lol, I'm hoping not to be induced with this baby however I think that is unlikely lol x

    Ooh I don't know but I'm also curious! With my son it was 48 hours from first contraction to birth, which was done via ventouse and episiotomy after an exhausting labour. It was horrid. My daughter however was the exact opposite, an hour of increasingly strong contractions followed by about 5 minutes of pushing. Luckily I was in hospital already because there's no way I'd have made it there on time! I'm actually slightly concerned number 3 may arrive in the car park lol
