    Default Were you induced with your 2nd or 3rd bub?

    I was 14 days past my due date and was induced with DS.
    I am pregnant with bub #2 and really like to go unto labour naturally.
    I am 37 weeks pregnant and feel absolute no cramps nothing at all. Just like the first time.

    Anyone was induce the first time and went into labour naturally 2nd time round?

    Thanks

    With DS1 I was induced at 42 weeks.

    With DS2 I had a planned c/s at 40 weeks and no sign of him coming.

    With DD I actually had a spontaenous labour at 40+7....something that has never happened before. The only difference I felt was the BH I had been having for weeks on end felt sharper. Thats it. Woke up at 3am for a wee and all this 'stuff' fell out. It was so exciting!

    I did the whole eat curries, sex, exercise, etc, etc and nothing helped.

    Good luck!

    I was induced with DS at 40+16.

    I was determined not to be induced with DD and had a spontaneous labour at 40+10.

    If you would prefer to avoid an induction ask what the are alternatives (eg regular monitoring) as you would prefer to go spontaneous.

    I was induced with DS and hoping for a spontaneous start with this next bub. I'm doing pre-birth acupuncture in the hopes it might help me achieve my goal.

    In in the exact same boat! Going to be trying acupuncture once full term to try and get this baby moving.

    I really really want to avoid being induced again.
