    Hi All,

    This is a question for those who have gave birth more than once - is it really true that the 2nd time roundis alot easier??? With my 1st I had quite a bad labour - well I didn't think it was too bad at time because I had expected the worst - it's just when I speak to mw or anyone now about the birth their initial reaction is awww you poor thing, you had a bad time. I think I'm more anxious this time round but I don't really know why. xx

    thanks - I should just chill out. I think there's a couple of things that are making me feel like this -

    1. I have a growth scan on new years eve because my 1st was 9lb 1oz and I only have a tiny frame so they want to check baby isn't as big this time - will need to be induced if he is.

    2. my 1st was back to back and mw said this one is same at the minute.

    I will prob feel better after new year when I know what will be happening.
