My DS was born at 38+3 and the labor lasted 22 hours and lotsssss of pain.So when I was pregnant with my DD y thought could be nice deliver by the same time. At 38+3 I was delivering my DD. This labor was completely the opposite and last 3 and half hours. It was a beautiful experience. I'm pregnant with my third and would like to hear some stories about third time around. If I'm likely to have a shorter labor and the same weeks of pregnacy.

you wouldn't like to hear the story of my 3rd labour grin Not a good one, but I had 3 more, so it didn't put me off that much.

And it was nothing that didn't pass, and the daughter I had from it, well, she makes true the saying 'no pain, no gain'. She is very close to my heart.

Sure that doesn't help, but good luck with your pregnancy and labour, anyway.

My first labour: 19 hours established but long painful run up to that for 2 days.

Second labour: 40 minutes start to finish. 39+4

Third labour: Waters broke (had never broke before labour with the other two) then nothing happened for 12 hours. Established labour was 6 hours.

i've read some stories and usually the third one come at the same week that the second or sooner and the labor get shorter as well. Well ledodgy you sure were exact on the weeks.
