2nd birth - any easier ???


hi

was looking at the second baby bigger thread and wondered if your second birth was easier if you went into labour earlier too or didnt have to be induced so would like to know how many week you were if induced or spontaneous and how long labour was how easy or harder it was x

just a little although hopefully will be first baby this will be my second birth just wanted to know as they plan to induce me at 38 weeks but was no where near ready last time and took 4 days to induce me

gonna be trying lots of sex this time to get it all going i hope and getting a sweep at 37 weeks too

thanks x

with my 1st i had to be induced as my waters had broke and i wasnt having strong enough contractions i was 2 weeks early and i was in labour for 31hours. no 2 i was 8 days late had a sweep the day before so went into natural labour in labour for 10hours by far the easist. and 3rd waters broke the day before due date but again had to be induced as i wasnt contracting, labour lasted 19 and a half hours.

My first I was induced and was in active labor for 3 days and needed an epidural she was 7lb 2 and a half oz.
My 2nd I just needed my waters broken and active labor was 24 hours, no pain relief and he was 8lb 2oz.
My 3rd was all natural, active labor was 10 hours, no pain relief and he was 7lb 2oz.

So they have got "easier" in the way of no medication needed and faster labor, but easier? I think because you know what to expect it isn't so scary and that is what makes it seem easier. xx

I have had six children, and my third was hands down my easiest..2nd was not much different from the first, but the time was cut in half because my water was leaking...In my opinion, there are good births, and ones that just take more out of you than most...You never know till afterwards...sorry..Just keep thinking good thoughts!

thanks

just heard everyone said they were earlier and quicker with 2nd babies

i am being induced at 38weeks and hoping i would be "ready" a bit eariler as they tried with pessaries at 40 weeks for 3 days nothing then popped waters and put me on picotin (the drip sorry not sure what it is ) and labour was 5hrs from start to finish

just hoping my body will make it easier this time as very worried
