Post subject: Labour
I am 35 weeks with my thrid child. I have been late with both of my boys'. The last time I went up to my 42 weeks and had to have my waters broken to start labour.
What I would like to know is: Is there a pattern to the sort of labour's you have?
or am I just as likely to have my third child on time or early?
Obviously I am hoping this labour will start on its own!

My Nan had 10 kids and 8 of them were boys. From what I remember, only one of the boys were on time the rest were late!!! But the 2 girls were on time or early. I don't think that there is any hard and fast rules to when the baby is going to be born. I have been induced and it's not nice. I would have loved to have a lot less intervention as induction tends to make labour more painful. My previous birth has left me a little scared and yet a lot wiser as to what I want this time round. Good luck. Sperm is meant to help so some love making might help lol! I tried everything to get started naturally but nothing worked.
