just wanted to know were subsequent labours shorter than first one ? Also if first child late were subsequent children late/early?

DD1 5 days early, long labour (from waters breaking/contractions starting to baby arriving about 18hrs)
DD2 on her due date - about 4 hrs
DS1 6 days late, about 2 hrs

DS was 13 days over, DD was 3 days over. Both labours lasted 6 1/2 hours. Pushing stage was quicker second time around though- 12 minutes rather than 19 minutes.

DS1: went into labour 40+2, born 40+4 (48 hrs from first, mild, contractions, official 'established labour' 28 hours)

DS2: went into labour 40+0, born 40+1 (13 hours from start (waters breaking), official 'established labour' 11 mins [but only cos they hadn't checked for a couple of hours, was about 1.5 hours really])

this is what i'm wondering - DS1 had elcs at 31 weeks and now pg with DC2. alll looks to be going ok so far but trying to figure out when to take maternity leave/hols etc.

any one have any idea if most babies arrive before or after due date?

i know the answer is in the question (Estimate Due Date) but can't quite get my head around it all!
