I am due 12th December. Just had a sweep appointment made for 22nd Dec, and "will be induction a few days later if not" - which will be Christmas.
On the assumption that second babies are quicker - are they earlier?
I was 40+6 with DC1, and just want to see if I can get any hope up of having DC2 home for Christmas?
(Or maybe I could request an ealier sweep?)

Blimey you're organised grin. Anyway, I was induced at 42weeks with DS1 and went naturally with DS2 at 41+5 so a bit earlier but still horribly overdue. I had had 2 sweeps by then - one the day after my due date & one at 41 weeks - I would definitely request a sweep earlier.

DC1 8 days' overdue
DC2 bang on time grin
DC3 induced at 40+1 as no sign of her coming out and she needed to be out.

So, both earlier and (potentially) later - I don't suppose that's rally helpful...

DD1 - 15 days late (due to be induced but started off naturally same day).

DD2 - 13 days late (induction should have been Christmas Eve but they moved it to the 22nd because I asked), she was born the 23rd.
