    My first DS was born exactly on his due date, emergency c section as labour didn't progress and he was in distress. 2.9 kg born. 16 hours from when waters broke. Heavy blood loss and needed 2 blood transfusions.

    DS2 was born emergency c section at 32 weeks due to known problems. A tiny 1.1 kg.

    I recovered better from DS2 birth. Maybe because I had to move around more.

    DD1 was a 17 hour induced (overdue by 10 days) labour that ended in a ventouse as she was distressed, she was 8 pound 6.
    DD2 was a 4.5 hour spontaneous labour at 10 days overdue, she was posterior, so I had to have an episotomy and forceps, but only just to get her head over the last hurdle, then she slipped out. She was 6 pound 5!

    Default Sizes of babies & labors of your 2nd & subsequent babies

    My first baby was born at exactly 40 weeks. My waters broke at 39+6 but had to be induced and she was born about an hour later. She was 4.11kg.

    Second baby was born with no interventions or drugs at 40+6 and he weighed 4.85kg. Interesting that I had no tearing or stitches with such a big baby but did have stitches with my first. She was quite big as well, but I think it was the induction, not her size.

    Third baby born at 38+3 via emergency csection. My waters broke and she was in transverse lie so had to get her out ASAP. She was my smallest at 4.07kg but she was also my earliest.

    ETA - my waters broke spontaneously with every pregnancy.

    DD - 39+4 8lb2oz, induced via AROM, contractions started straight away and she was born 4 hours later. No tearing.
    DS1 - 37+1 7lb2oz, SPOM, contractions started 9 hours later and he was born in 45 mins (at home because we didn't have time to get to hospital). Once again no tearing.
    DS2 - 37+1 7lb 2oz (exactly the same weight and gestation as his brother), had some pre labour over 9 hours, active labour was 2 1/2 hours. My waters didn't break until he was crowning so his head shot out and his body quickly followed causing me to have a second degree tear. By far my most painful birth of all three.
