    Easier, harder, more/less painful than your previous births???

    Did you cope better or worse?? Longer/shorter - my mum lives 2 hrs away so I'm worried this will be quick and I need my children to be looked after and definitely want dh with me!!!

    Starting to panic at what I've let myself in for!

    It's so hard to say what your labour will be like, as all pregnancies are different.

    My first baby was born 5 wks early, due to my waters breaking.
    My second baby was born right on time, with no help/inducing...all natural.
    My third baby was 12 days past due date, and I had to be induced.

    For all 3 pregnancies, my labour was between 8-16hrs. With induction, pains were stronger, more sharp.

    I think if your first 2 labours were quick, then this one would probably be also, or long, same thing.

    But then, you just never know....LOL

    Indeed - I won't know until it happens! I've heard of a lot of ladies saying number 3 was quick etc and that's kinda scaring me as my mum is soooo far away!! I need her here to look after my other 2!!

    This little boy is my 6th :blush: I've found my labours have got quicker each time. My third was however my best in terms of how I managed,how easy to push out he was. He was a week early and definitely my easiest x x x

    My 1st was the longest 16 hours
    my 2nd,3rd,and 4th were all 7 hours BUTTTT the 4th baby I only gave a few pushes and she was out, my second was enormous at almost 10lbs so she was a struggle to get out and I had a lot of bleeding and my third was so text book I hardly remember it. It based on the baby more than how many times you have done it honestly the pain was the same I demanded epidural with all of them THAT part never gets better lol

    I found that each of my babies were quick..

    1st was 5hrs
    2nd was 3 hrs
    3rd was 1 1/2 hrs
    4th was less than 1/2hr

    It scares me with this one that I might have it alone on my kitchen floor..
    I was lucky because my waters always broke before labour began so I had time to get to the hospital.
