How did the 4th labour compare to the others?

Might be in a slight freak out here 😂

It was fine another induction but most of mine were.

1st was awful. 42wk induction, back to back baby, 3rd degree tear and episiotomy and minor pph. 7 day hospital stay.

2nd and only spontaneous birth at 41+3 was 6hrs from waters breaking.

3rd induced at 42wks. 2hr labour.

4th induced at 40wks, waters broken, nothing happened, had epidural and drip. He was born 4hrs after I got to established labour. 40wks was arguably early for me which I think is why nothing happened.

5th. Almost identical to 3rd. Induced at 41wks. 2hr labour.

Good luck.

What are your advice and tips for a couple in humble earnings with aspirations for 4 children?

Seems like whenever people say they want more than 2 nowadays people look at them like they're crazy, at least in my generation anyway.
