i was wondering how common it is for a woman to spontaneously go into labor if she has already had a child, especially if induced the first time around. were you past 40 weeks w/ your 1st? how about second?(or 3rd, 4th...) :) and were your labors actually shorter than the 1st like they say? just curious....

I had a section with my first. I never had labor or even felt braxton hicks with her. She was just breech. My waterbroke nine days early with my second. I had contractions that were irregular for about two weeks before my water broke with stomach problems (loose stools, etc) starting the weekend before my water broke.

Hi.I was 42wks with my first son who was born naturally, but they did have to break my water.He will be 12 in July but I belive I labored with him for about 24 hrs,son#2 came 22 months later ,1 day before his due date and my labor with him was about 14 hrs.So even though #2 was somewhat shorter, it was in no way spontaneous or even as quick as I would have liked.I have also heard that the more babies u have, the faster they come.I am now 37w3d with my babygirl and dr says she will probably come before her due date of June 17 b/c again the more u have the sooner they come.At least that's what they say.I've never been induced and I pray I won't have to with this one, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference at all in the quickness of the actual labor.

I had my 1st 4 days early...went naturally...about 21 hours . I had my 2nd..she was 10 days late, but my dates could have been off a bit, and went natural and about 15 hours o9f labor. My 3rd , my water broke and no contractions( after 1 month of contractions) so they induced me and he was born 7 hours later..1 day early. This one I am due today...NO baby as of right I will let you know!

Hello!!! I am 33 weeks along and I am on # 3 My first labor was 12 hours one day they stopped it and started it again the next day and I was in labor for another 12 hours until I had her. My 2nd I went into labor naturally and it was 6 hours long. Her head was sunny side up and it was mostly pushing {4 hours}

Hi, Lindsey. My first I was induced at 38 weeks and labored for about 23 hours, then my second pregnancy I went all the way to 38 weeks exactly and then my water broke and labor started. I labored for 4 hours with them. I am now 39 wks and 2 days with this pregnancy and I don't even feel labor near. I was so sure that since this was my third pregnancy I would have had her by now, but I guess not. and since the second pregnancy was twins I can't really say how far I would have gone If I would only have had one.
