I'm posting up a storm today Sorry. I'm starting to get mentally prepared for this birth I guess. I was just curious what some of your experiences with subsequent births were. My mw says 90% chance this labor will be very similar to the first one, except shorter. How many of you had that experience (shorter and similar)? Anyone have a second birth that was longer or harder than the first for no apparent reason (I mean not counting some kind of complication that made it harder or longer)? Obviously I will take it as it comes, but I know deep down I have been assuming this birth will be basically the same, only possibly shorter and I'm hoping without some of the minor complications that happened during my first birth. I perhaps have not done a very good job preparing myself for things to go differently.
