I had a very positive, quick and straight forward induction with DS. Awaiting birth of bump who is likely to be a spontaneous birth (unless I go way overdue - god forbid!!)

Am interested in hearing how your second labours went and if the first striaght forward induction can be an indicator of the second birth.....

I am expecting the 'every labour is different' response however

1st birth was induced at 12 days over, had 12 hour labour, basically straightforward, but ds went into distress and doctors were considering CS. Had wonderfully sensible doctor who said to just wait a while and give nature a chance, hence straightforward delivery.

2nd birth, went 14 days over, asked not to be induced, had dd at home, 3 and a half hour labour, no pain relief/stitches - fantastic experience!

went 12 days overdue with DD1, induced, quite straigtforward - epidural but no other intervention, around 24 hours from being induced. dd2 - waters broke at home a few days early, she arrived 3 hours later, no time for any intervention. By the way, they do say you labour like your mother - and this was exactly what happened to my mum with me and my brother(except no epidural in her day !)
