    Default When did baby number 2 arrive?

    How did all of you with super fast second labours get to the hospital on time?
    I live 10min away from the hospital... However I took the time to let DH sleep in, then had a shower and a blow wave before going.
    Had I been further away from hospital I would have skipped the blow wave 😋

    My mw had told me to come to hospital at the first sign of a real contraction and not to wait for a pattern etc

    DH did 150km the whole way.(50 min trip done in 30 mins) I had to stop timing it was making me too nervous, Thankfully it was 3 in the morning so quiet on the road, when I got there I got in the bath, waters broke, 2 contractions and she was born.

    Lol - I doubt I will be as calm as you (although who wants to give birth without a fabulous blow wave?)

    If you had a quick first labour I would leave as soon as you have any sign. My Ob and middie told me to do this too. You can always walk some stairs or go home if it's not the real deal ..

    Bub 1 - spontaneous, on time, 35+ hrs of labour

    Bub 2 - induced at 40+3, 2.5hrs of established labour (about 8 hrs of unproductive contractions that were just caused by the drip but did nothing to dilate the cervix).

    My second labour & birth was by far the better of the two, despite being induced and bub being 1kg bigger than my first!

    Bub 1 arrived at 39.3 weeks - was posterior and had a very long and painful labor.

    Bub 2 arrived at 41 weeks (I was shocked and didn't expect this). I had an easy and super quick delivery. Bubs arrived within 3hrs of first pain.
