Hi everyone, I have lurked here off and on for a few weeks but can't remember if I ever introduced myself.
My name is Nikki and I have a 10yr son named AJ and my DH and I are expecting a little girl in Nov. This will be his first and its fun going thru pregnancy this time with someone who is excited about it other than me.
Anyway my question for the other ladies here...I asked in my due date club but most of those ladies, its either their first chi or they have little ones at home. I don't think there is anyone w/the wide gap that I have with my son.
I always thought when you got pregnant your body remembers what to do, etc. But just recently I was told that b/c there has been such a time gap since my last one that my body is starting all over again and I can't necessarily expect an easy labor just b/c my first one was and b/s this is my second child. Hope that makes sense....does anyone else have an opinion on this or heard this before???
I just don't want to suffer thru the 30hr labors that my sisters had...with my son it was only 4hrs and a few pushes and wa- la he was out....
Thanks in advance!
My two children were 17 years apart and I was also told that it's like doing it for the first time. However my two labors were very similar. Both started pre-term, both had to be induced, both lasted about 12 hours from induction to delivery, and one was born at 10:18pm and the other at 10:19pm, both were good size boys. I think it's not a matter of your body remembering labor but the fact that that is just how it handles labor.
