Hi ladies I have just found out I am exspecting my second. I am only around 7-8weeks. Just wanted a little insight to second babies labour/delivery? I'm a long way off but already playing on my mind 🙈😂 My first now 5 was overdue +42 I had to be induced which tbh I would do anything to avoid this time around. Took 3 days of contracting with the jels but no progress as I wasn't dilating so a long process before actual labour kicked off but then his delivery was straight forward I sure they wrote it down on my notes as just over 30mins pushing! I was just wondering of other ladies experiences of their second if was quicker than their first x
Oh no really 🙈 I've just got this feeling I'm going to have to be induced again which I really don't want as it was just so slow and really long process..
I read a few blogs that say as your body has already been through it the second time is sometimes quicker Im not too worried in the delivery itself as my last experience was pretty okay just getting to that point x
There's no reason why your second might go the same way. I was expecting my second to be similar but nothing was the same (apart from a lovely baby at the end!) My second was nearly 3lbs heavier so I always blamed that! I am not a medic so I don't think that could be proved!!
Oh really @mrsbarnettbaby I wouldn't mind that happening to me 😂
My first labour was marked down as 4hrs 30 odd mins with a pushing time of 30mins but they don't include the 3days before as it wasn't (established labour) just them trying to induce me. I had full contractions the whole 3days just no dilation x
@aaahhhBUMP I know still away to go 🙈😂 with my first I didn't even think of labour until it was time to was quite relaxed about it really till they induced me think it's kinda left a little scare tbh because this time as soon as I feel the double lines I thought labour haha.. But hopefully this experience all be same as you guys x
No my first was pretty straightforward and petty much on due date. 2nd 10 days overdue, back to back and long painful labour. Now expecting number 3 and this one is currently b2b too. People kept telling me 2nd so much easier I knew not to listen
