As soon as you get that first contraction or your waters break, then call an ambulance.
That said sometimes 3rd babies stuff around a bit and do something completely different to the other 2.

DS1 - induced at 42 weeks, 14 hours
DS2 - spontaneous at 38 weeks 32 hours (due to complications)
DS3 - spontaneous at 39+5 6 hours, but went from 3cm to 10cm in the last 1.5 hours.

Our MW also told us that 3rd babes are typically unpredictable. In our case, the pregnancy was unpredictable, the birth pretty similar, just faster!

I was expecting my third to be super fast. My midwives and OB thought it would be too. Nope.
1st bub - 11 hours plus 4 days prelabouring 40+1
2nd bub - 2h 50m from start to finish 40+1
3rd bub - well where do I count from? 2 days of failed induction plus 6 hours labour, plus 1 hour emergency csection? lol 39+1
I had made sure I had ambulance cover and never went anywhere far with my kids on my own.. but this third bub was way too comfortable inside! I 'should of' been a perfect candidate for induction but apparently not so. bub was posterior which made it alot harder and active labour was excruciating, much worse than my first two combined. cheeky monkey ....

1st baby 12 hrs
2nd baby 3 hours(18 hours from water breaking 3 hours from 3cm to birth)
3rd baby 1hr 40 mins..
So yes. .Although baby 3 was 6 hours from water breaking but went from 3cm to fully dilated in the time it took the anaethesist to put my epidural in..so like 20mins or so

I am thinking same thing my first dd 41plus 5 days 5hrs active labour
Ds was told he would be much quicker at abou 2.5 hrs only he was 2 days of horrible labour
Now ds2 I'm due in 5 weeks I'm hoping its nothing like my second and more like my first usually they say each is quicker but then each is different too.
I worry it will be to quick and I can't have a epidural though lol.
