Was your 2nd induction similar to your first? Was it as successful or less? Longer or shorter? And how far along were you when induced?
I've got my induction booked tonight and I'm 40+3 today. Last pregnancy I was induced at 41 weeks. I had a really positive experience so I thought I would be fine to be induced again but now I'm starting to worry that it won't go as well as last time because I'm going in 4 days earlier than I did before (although I've had pre-labour contractions for 3 days now, whereas I didn't have that last pregnancy).

No advice but subbing

When I was induced with my second child it was much more relaxed and calmer. I felt more in control over the medications they administer to get things moving.
I was able to avoid have a drip in which meant I could walk around during labour (which I highly recommend!).

I was induced at exactly the same gestation for both children 36 weeks 5 days. Due to pre eclampsia with both.

Induced with my first at 42 weeks . He was 7lb3. 12 hour labour. Vacuum delivery with an episiotomy and a few stitches. I had an epidural
Quite early on and was happy with my birth. He was also posterior.
Second was induced at 39+4 due to his size. He was 9lb16. Forceps delivery in theatre with a third degree tear. The labour was exactly the same. Epidural quite early. He was posterior but turned into a bad transverse position during the pushing stage but until then it was pretty much exactly the same as my first. I found the second induction less scary as I knew what to expect a bit more so had the Epi a bit later and let it wear off more.

A friend of mine was induced with both of hers at around 40-41 weeks and they were both really positive experiences for her with everything going smoothly. She had an epidural with both as well. 2nd bub was 4.2kg too! How exciting you will be meeting your bub soon!

My 2 inductions were pretty much exactly the same. Worked the same, in the same time frame. Only small difference was the second was ever so slightly longer, which was fine by me because my first was super fast, too fast.
