    Fingers crossed for you!

    I'm a pretty big sook lol. Crowning did hurt and I felt myself tear but the pushing part was so much shorter. The bath definitely made the contractions better. And being in the water was easier as you don't get as tired with all the pressure on your body.

    I'm probably lucky that my fore waters didn't break til pushing as I probably would have had to get out if they broke earlier due to meconium.

    That is lucky! I'm praying for no meconium or other complications! Had meconium last time around and wasn't allowed in the bath

    Probably about 8-9 hours for first birth. Then more like 6 for the second. Here's hoping for 4 hours for the third? I've never had a tear, just a graze that healed itself with the first, so to be honest I don't mind a slower stretch. I think it helps me to wrap my head around it all, too. The idea of labour starting and ending within an hour or two is a bit scary to be honest. I'd like my midwife to arrive first!!

    Default How short was your next labour?

    My experience with my two labours is so similar to @Mamasupial's!

    And yes even though second labour hurt and I had a 2nd degree tear I actually enjoyed the experience (unlike the first- just in pain, drugged up and exhausted after hours of labour lol).
    Chalk and cheese those two labours.

    Good luck @witherwings you're a pro, really hope you get that waterbirth. Xxx

    I'm away for holidays in a couple of hours- hope bubs is out when I'm back on Friday!!!!
