Ok, I've never had a vaginal birth or a very long labor for that matter, so some of my questions might seem kind of dumb. Bare with me, please.

I'm wondering if it's possible that I could have a quick and fairly easy labor/delivery with #3 (when ever they come along), even though I've only ever been in labor for 7 hrs, dilated to a 2? Could my body just do it's own thing and "know" how to do it all?

Yes you have just as much of a chance at a normal labor as any other pregnant woman.

I've had nine pregnancies...8 of them being vaginal deliveries and all the labors and deliveries were different from one another. Some were long and some were very short...it all depends...

Thanks ladies! Hopefully my next labor will be fairly short and uneventful.

I will say this: because you don't have a "proven pelvis" your body is more likely to respond like a first time mom. Not a big deal though because there are first timers who go all over the spectrum, you know?

From what I've gleaned from all my research, jaci is right and you'll probably respond like a first timer, but lots of first timers have successful labors.

I'm attempting a VBA2C with my triplets and I've never had a vaginal delivery either. I am going in hoping for the best but preparing emotionally for a c-section. If you just have one in there, I think you have exactly the same chances as any other pregnant person of having a successful delivery.

Very best of luck! You can do it!!!!

Michelle, don't I know you from the ICAN Atlanta board? You have THE best dr to have a VBA2C with and with triplets! You can do it!!

I agree with the others, you may have a long labor like a first time mom would, but that doesn't mean your body can't vaginally deliver a baby.

All the long labor/first timer stuff kinda makes me laugh. My neighbor was in labor for SIX hrs before delivering her son via home waterbirth! (first child, first pregnancy)
