    I was induced with my first daughter as she was 14 days overdue. Hoping things will go better this time, although I know that there is no guarantee. Just want to know if on average the second baby tends to come on time :)

    I want to know this too!

    I have been asking anyone I know with more than one baby about this, and I am getting mixed responses, so from what I am gathering its very hard to say.

    I hope its not true though, I really don't want to go overdue again either

    I am supposed to get a sweep today, as long as she can reach. She said at last visit I was 2 cm and 20-30% effaced and that if I don't efface more, she might not be able to do a sweep :(. Really hoping she can.

    I was induced at 10 days over with dd. With ds, I had a sweep at 5 days over and he came that night. I am hoping I continue that pattern and cut another 5 days off, therefore going on my due date! I am having a sweep at 1 day over though, so will be happy if that works! I am only 32 weeks though, so have a while to wait yet anyway!

    Good luck!!!

    Thanks, ladies!

    Seems I should not get my hopes up too much. Just hoping to avoid induction and experience a natural birth with minimum interference. :) This time I feel strong BHs which I did not have with my first and I am also producing much more colostrum. Maybe wishful thinking but I feel this time will be different.

    Lexi did not even engage until the induction and MW could not do the sweep. I just remember myself walking and walking for hours, hoping it would bring on the labour lol haha...

    When i saw my consultant he said most babies follow trend, late first babies tends to mean late 2nd babies. Early first babies tends to mean early 2nd babies. Not ALWAYS though xxx

    But at the same time you read everywhere something along these lines: It is not uncommon for the first babies to come late...
    It kind of implies that second babies should come earlier :)
    Confusing!
