IS it possible DC3 will come on time?

My first two were induced 14 days overdue and 10 days overdue. Cervix was never favourable with them and they didnt engage until labour.

I'm currently 38+4 and the past couple of weeks I've felt pains on what I presume is my cervix when the baby moves, can't remember this happening the other two times. I've also had a few tightenings when out and about the past few days. I'm really trying not to get my hopes up. Just wondered if anyone else had been induced a couple of times then had spontaneous labour with subsequent children? I have a sweep on Friday so guess I will know more after that.

I wasn't induced with my first 2 but they were both a week late. Number 3 arrived a week early just before xmas so think it is definitely possible. smile Fingers crossed for you

It's possible - every baby and pregnancy is different even if it feels the same iyswim?

Both my pregnancies were identical - small SGA babies as the placenta wasn't functioning properly. DD1 was induced at 40+5 but ended in CS before I went into labour.

I was convinced the same would happen with DD2 as I had all the same issues as with DD1. She had other things in mind though and arrived by VBAC 2 weeks early in just 3.5 hours!

Fingers crossed for you - sounds like things are moving along!
