    Default Does early spontaneous labour for first two mean another one?

    Well, they weren't that early. First was 5 days, second was 11 days.

    I've had pre labour happenings for a while, and apart from being driven bonkers by it nothing else has happened!
    Argh!

    So is there hope that I'll have this bub early ish again?

    I had thought previous babies gave a good indication as to what will happen with your next..

    However, if it has been a long time (5 or 7 years I think), then you are treated like a new mum and previous births don't mean much...

    No personal experience with this sorry! Goodluck!

    I heard it was closer to 10years?

    OP, I hope this isn't the case or I'll be expecting to go overdue again

    Hi!
    I had two spontaneous labours, and just assumed my third baby would follow suit but alas she had other plans and I ended up being induced at 10 days over :-/
    I will cross my fingers for you to go spontaneous!

    Not quite what I was hoping to hear! I'm already being harassed by family, lol.

    I'm not too uncomfortable yet... Guess I need to get to that point first. *sigh*

    In four days time I'll be the same gestation as when DD was born. Must not get my hopes up. Must not get my hopes up. Must not get my hopes up.

    Unfortunately I think it comes down to each pregnancy is different, although both mine came early first one at 38wks second at 39wks.
    When i got to 38wks with bub 2 I kept hassling my OB with-will this one be early I really wouldn't like to go over he said I don't think the baby really cares about what you want he'll come when his ready
