Induction needed after 2 spontaneous deliveries?

Has anyone needed an induction after having 2 spontaneous deliveries? I guess it might be relevant that this pregnancy is with a different partner, and several years since the last one.
Sigh. I'm only 5 days late, but getting tired now!

Me! My first was spontaneous, I was in slow labour for 3 odd days before delivering on the day I was supposed to be induced. He was 11 days overdue.
Number 2 was +4 and non eventful.
Number 3 induced at 11 days over. Had her the same day. Very fast.
Number 4 (new partner) was also spontaneous at +5.

Honestly, I don't think there's any pattern in it. There's plenty of time yet for you to go into labour on your own.

My midwife told me baby three are often "tricky little buggers"!

I did. DD1 was 5 days over and labour started spontaneously. I went into labour with DD2 one day after my due date. And then I went 17 days overdue with DD3 and had to be induced by pessary.

The others had been in fairly good positions whereas DD3 was back to back. I think that's probably what caused it.

Hope you go into labour soon and good luck smile

Thanks for your replies!
I must say there are few threads I've started hoping to get zero response to.
Wonder why baby 3 is tricky? Strange.
Thank you char, for your kind wishes.

I've had an induction after 3 spontaneous births and then a C-section. It was because I had an infection though, I wasn't overdue.
