Yep my third came three weeks early and my friend's third was born in a Layby near the Hospital. So get your bag packed ready.
My third was born in about half an hour. Take some paracetamol as you may get after birth pains and if you have to wait for some to be fetched for you, then you may suffer.
The best news is that I think Third babies are lovely and easy.
Best of luck and I hope all goes well.

I went dc1 3 days late, dc2 5 days early, dc3 5 days late. So my 3rd was the latest of the lot too. I had braxton hicks for about a week and then once I had proper contractions it lasted about 3.5 hours start to finish.

Smugnogplease Fri 12-Dec-14 22:15:30

Dc1 5 days late
Dc2 (boy) 15 days late
Dc3 (girl) 16 days late!! ( I'm not one for inductions) Followed by lovely water home birth but still 6 hours ish, 3 stretch and sweeps. I have tough membranes, once they go I'm away!
I didn't have a lot of sex in pregnancy, new dp now for dc4 so I'm hoping the better love life will help this one to make an earlier entry!

DS3 was the only one to arrive on his due date. DS1 was three days late and DS2 was three weeks early.

DC1 - 7 days late
DC2 - 10 days late
DC3 - born on due date, but this was a planned caesarean, and I had absolutely no signs of impending labour as I waited in the hospital for my ELCS wink
