If everyone could stop saying the 2nd time is easier...


...that would be greeeeeat.

People were telling me before I got to this point (41 weeks tomorrow) "The second one is easier/comes sooner/etc".

#1 came on her own at exactly 40 weeks.

Here I sit with #2 at 41 tomorrow and an induction scheduled for the 12.

I don't mind waiting. I've come to terms and peace with it. I guess I'm just feeling a little sad that I'm not going into labor already. I just have to relax again.

Thanks, girl!! It's just so weird. I guess I got spoiled the first time around and thought I would go into labor on my own again. The baby has a different plan.

You've got it. #2 is not easier. Doesn't always come sooner. Doesn't always come out faster. My second pregnancy was also much longer than my first. Congratulations, though!!! You'll be holding your baby so soon; I'm so excited for you. My induced labor (no pain relief) was my fastest and easiest, which I always mention because people make induction sound so scary sometimes, and I hope YOURS is super easy as well.

Ahhh thank you!! I literally have only had one other person tell me a positive induction story, so yours makes me feel better.

Same here! #1 came at 39+6 on his own and #2 was induced at 41+2! Everyone kept saying "oh I never thought you'd end up over" yeah, helpful, not! On the plus side I had a nice labour end delivery with no pain relief either with my induction. Good luck.xx
