    Ok,my friend has officially put the fear of God in me!
    She told me 3rd babies and sometimes second can come much quicker due to body knowing what to do.

    My first was c-section so wasn't natural,second was normal delivery and took 18 hours start to finish.

    I was thinking this one would be the same roughly?

    I have had period cramps on and off and very sharp ones which make me jump up very fast!

    Since last night I have the feeling where you think you need to do a number 2 but I don't when I get there.
    Though had a clearout again twice in 10 mins last night.
    But feel like down below is stretching and lots of pressure.
    Does that make sense?

    He has been quiet last day or so too and my consultant said babies can go quieter just before d-day.

    I haven't experienced going into labour before because was induced with second.
    Scared I will go into fast labour and not get to hospital in time.

    Thx for reading,just needed to get that off my chest :blush:

    I dont no if this helps hun
    But with my 1st i was in labour 13 hours then with the second 1 it was just 30 mins only just got to hospital :rofl: but sam my 3rd was 3 hours so id say it just depends on how fast baby wants to come x

    if your worried you could talk to your mw i also lived 20 mins from the hospital so only just made it but wat i did was go for a test run to the hospital in rush hour traffic that way you would no that if you went in to labour around that time you would no that you needed to set off a bit earlier xx
    hope everything goes ok hun x
