Hi I normally am in the preggers forum but just would like to ask you lovely ladies a question.
Was your first baby early or late?
Also did your labour start naturally or assisted?

My son arrived either 8 days late by the date on dating scan, or bang on time by last period date! Had a sweep to start things off, though the mw didn't think it would do anything as my cervix was quite high still but my hind waters went 8 hours later and he was born 10 1/2 hours after that, so something obviously went right!

Hi my first was 12 days late (by scan dates) - went into natural labour but didn't get passed 4cm so was induced to speed things up

Charlotte was 12 days early (born on a Sunday).
On the previous Thursday I was leaking what I thought was wee as only very slight trickle. Friday night had a show. Rang mw on Sat morning. She said to wait as labour might not start immediately. 3am Sunday morning went into labour. Went into maternity suite, mw checked me was 1cm dilated and had to be put on anti-biotic drip as my leakage was hind waters not wee!
Born naturally, had pethidine as pain relief in labour for 19 hours, with 2nd degree tear.
All worth it in the end!
Good luck xx

My first was 2 days late and started all naturaly. my second was a different story he tried to come 11 weeks early and every week after that thank god he stayed in there lol.
he ended up 1 day early but had a sweep and my waters broken. It seemed once I was ready for him he didn't want to come out . typical bloke lol

my lo came 2 weeks early, went into labour naturally on xmas Day after spending the afternoon playing on the wii lol waters were trickling but didn't go prop so when I went in the mw popped them to help things speed along. He was eventually born on the 27th
Mar 20, 2009 3:57PM
my 1st was 5 days early and started naturally with no complications what so ever.
Mar 20, 2009 4:35PM
I calculated my due date as the 3rd but midwife said 5th - she came on the 4th so I think we can call that on time
My waters broke and she arrived 13 hours later.
Mar 20, 2009 4:37PM
Mine was natural, waters went first and he was born at exactly 37 weeks, so no time to panic about labour etc!

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
