MIL had 4ds 1 was 7wk prem the others was 2wk before due date, she just had normal straight forward births.
I've got 2ds and preg with ds3, my first was induced, at 42wk, big pph, then shock to the body. Ds2 was 5 day labour, back to back got stuck ended in assisted delivery and then manual removal of placenta as it wouldnt come. So mine wasnt same as hers. X
DS1 - 7hr labour, unassisted vaginal delivery. DD - No labour pains beforehand, fast, unassisted vaginal delivery (apparently, she found this to be quite a shock an my SIL was born at home). DS2 (my DH) - 4hr labour, unassisted vaginal delivery.
Mil felt slightly nauseous with her second for a week or so. I've had HG from beginning to end with all mine (4 pregnancies, 2mc, 1 dc and 1 expected).
Both MILs children came early (37 wks) and labour was only for 6-7 hrs! Babies were 7-8lbs. No aftercare needed, she was back to normal straight away.
I on the other hand I went over by 6 days. Had 5 days of very painful 'latent labour' contractions day and night every 20-10 mins. 19 hrs of established labour once my waters were broken and baby was 9lb+. 3rd and 2nd degree tears. Exhausting doesn't come close!
Hoping for a much better experience this time round!
