Those of you that have had 3+ babies what was your third labour like? I'm due DD3 a week today and I've read some horror stories online about how 3rd labour tends to be the worsed one? Someone put my mind at ease please? Haha DD1 was 7 days late with an 11 hour labour and DD2 was 3 days late with a 5 hour labour so I've been hoping I'll either go a little early or on time this time!🙏
Super easy. Dc3 turned up in less the 1hour 15mins. From first contraction waking me up. Paramedics got there just in time to catch and give me a few puffs on the gas and air with my few pushes to get him out.
Thanks ladies! My previous labours have all been so easy with no pain relief and water births so was really hoping for the same this time... feel loads better better now, hopefully this one will be the same!
First - two weeks late, third degree tear Second- two days late, epidural, baby got a bit stuck, born blue but was fine straightaway. Third - kept on toes as baby didn't turn until last minute. waters broke, induced, didn't feel contractions until crowning (!!!!) Baby flew out. Lovely skin to skin, best birth of all!!
I heard horror.stories about 3rd Labours but mine was very quick & straight forward. 90mins from first contraction untill she was born. It was a lovely birth experience the best of my 3. She arrived at 6.30pm, left the hospital at 9.30pm & snuggled on the couch by10pm.
Third labour was super quick, probably about half an hour? DC4 (first two were twins) was born whilst I was waiting for DH to get back from the school run to take me to hospital No pain relief but no problems either thankfully. Good luck everyone.
