    Just wondered if your labours were shorter with second baby's than the first?
    I was induced last time and got away with 6.5 hour labour which i think is pretty good going for a first baby, just wondering what to expect this time? :hugs: x

    I voted no much longer, my 2nd baby was much bigger though so that might have had something to do with it :shrug:

    My first was 16 hours from first contraction and second was 18 and more dificult but again the size difference was massive (1st 5lb 5 and second 7lb 150z) so could have been that, As soon as I went in and said it was my second they were like ahh he will be here in no time.....so hopefully your second will be easier xx
