For fun and wondering reasons really.. How many weeks were you when you went into labour. Were you expecting to come early? Induced? Differ from the other labours you had?

34+5 complete shock now pregnant with DC2 and really hoping I last longer this time.

DC1 37, 4
Currently 39, 4. Have had mega Braxton hicks and period cramping for a month. Beenjoying swigging raspberry leaf tea and drinking tincture, having acupuncture, rubbing clary sage but nothing.
Suspect is that I was gym addict last pg which anecdotally makes for earlier, smaller babies, but too tired to do much more than swim and walk this time. Hurry up baby!!

39+5. I was convinced I would have to be induced, I spent ages researching induction. But my best friend who had been saying for over a month the baby would be born that day was right.

40+14 induced ending in emcs x2

40+1 when I felt the first twinges and waters broke. 40+3 when DD finally made her entrance. I'd had an appointment with the midwife on my due date, and she said it would be about 3 days or so- she was right. So I was expecting DD to come when she did, but not that I'd go into labour when I did. I had it in my head that labour would be about 18 hours.

40, 40, 41 + 3 (one sweep), 42 (5 sweeps, crying, climbing the walls, depressed) wink

Although saying that, the final birth was the biggest baby, born in the bag and an absolute doddle.

40 exactly, completely natural.

Induced for GD at 39w, had him the day after. He was already on his way though and my dates (pre-scan) put me at 39+6 when he was born. Quite a long labour - contractions started at 2:30am, induced at 3:00pm, contracting until waters went at 4am and then had him at 4:00pm.

DD - born at 39weeks & 6 days. DH had been working away (only 2 hours away) but came home for the night before his last day of work. My waters broke in the middle of the night. Quick labour for a first. Had first contraction half an hour later and DD was born in 6 hours.

DS - born at 38 weeks. I'd had a show 8 days previously and loads of braxton hicks. DH had been working away for 2 weeks and I'd been really worried about him missing the birth. DH got home, my waters broke 2 hours later and DS born in 2 hours! shock

39w & 5 days. Went into labour 30mins after my first cup of raspberry leaf tea. Oops.

39+5 no symptoms until the day it started then a 30 hour back to back labour.

I've still got the stitches to show for it but also a beautiful daughter sleeping soundly in her cot next to me smile

It was great photo it still bloody hurt but at least it was over with quickly. I can't have cost the NHS much either as I didn't have any time for pain reliefshock
