So I'm pregnant with our 3rd baby (had a miscarriage last year). I'm only 7 weeks along but am starting to think about delivery.
I've heard it said that second deliveries are typically faster than the first, but that the 3rd delivery follows no rules, and can be all over the place.
So just curious was your 3rd delivery faster/easier than your previous ones? Harder? Somewhere in between?
I know no one can predict what kind of delivery I will have, but I've had two straight forward vaginal births. The first was 7 hours active labour, the second was 2hrs active labour. Both with a longish gradual build up prior to becoming active. It's so easy to assume that another birth would be very similar, but I understand that anything can happen.
So am just curious what other people's experiences have been.
