Currently 34 weeks with DC2, my first just turned 16. Do you think my body will remember how to do it or will it be just like having a first baby?
I wish I knew. I'm waiting for DS2 to arrive after an 8 year gap. I'm 40+11 and nothing is happening yet. I feel like my body has forgotten
If it's anything to go on, my sister had her second 12 years after the first, I was with her, things progressed really quickly. Waters went at 9 baby born at 1, first baby had been 36 hours.
That's reassuring. I keep trying to convince myself that the gap doesn't matter, my body will still remember. Like riding a bike lol
I'm wondering the same, DD turns 13 next week and currently 35 weeks PG with DD2.I had a very long drawn out labour 13 years ago, i was alomost 2 weeks late and it lasted over 36 hours. Praying this one is not the same!
