    Default Inductions in second & subsequent pregnancies..

    So my waters have been leaking since Thursday & if I don't go into labour over the weekend I'll have to be induced on Monday morning.
    I was induced with DS so this would be my second induction.
    For those of you who have had more than 1 induction, was it any different to your first, second etc?
    Was your labour shorter?
    Was one more painful than the other?

    My 2 were almost exactly the same.
    Same with pain, same with timing re. how long it took to work, almost the same labour times-
    #1- 1hr 40min,
    #2- 2 3/4hrs.

    I've been induced 3 times.

    1st was with gel and went for 14hrs.

    The next 2 were via them breaking my waters. Both babies were born in under an hr.

    I have only had one induction (2nd) and I did a lot of internet research etc beforehand and I read a lot that the second induction is usually quicker just like a normal birth is quicker subsequent times.

    Good luck!

    I was induced twice. The first was 12 hours & I needed an epidural early on. The second was 2.5 hrs with no pain relief.

    Induced both times. First labour at 39+6, had waters broken at 2pm, DS born at 9:30pm.. Second induced at 40+6 - Waters broke overnight after gels put in at 9:30, DS2 born the next day at 2pm. It seemed like my first labour went forever, when it really didn't. 2nd I felt went really quick even though I had been contracting since 2am the night before. No drugs though and left the hospital the same day he was born (6 hours later). Good luck!
