I'm yet to have number 2 but was wondering what gestation people had their babies and if there was a trend? From the ladies who have added their gestation, it seems that babies were born roughly the same time.

DD was born 13 hours after pessery - 9 hours after contractions started, 2 and a half days after waters broke 😂, at 40+5.

Mine were 41+1 (1 day after sweep), 40 exactly (waters broke during sweep), then 39+5 (spontaneous).

Wild Card


I'm a midwife and I tell all my clients that the third baby is the wild card. It will either be longer than the first or shorter than the second!

So prepare for both! But the rule of thumb is as soon as contractions are consistent and getting stronger and closer together; head to the hospital. Better to be sent away then to have the baby unassisted or on the side of the road!

1. 36+1: 4 hours from the doctor breaking my water (I had pre-eclampsia with my first so was induced solely by breaking my water)
2. 37+2: 11 hours from water breaking

I have no idea what the third will be like. I remember feeling annoyed that my second took longer than my first as everyone said it would be shorter!
