Re: Overdue babies and short labors
That held true for me, but my labors kept getting shorter and my time overdue kept getting shorter also.
#1 42 weeks on the dot - 6 hours from the first tiny hint to baby in my arms
#2 41 weeks 1 day - 3 hours from first hint to baby
#3 40 weeks 3 days - less than one hour, it was so crazy fast, I'm not sure exactly how long it was.
We are done having kiddos, partly because I was for real scared that I would be caught out and about somewhere and just start giving birth. I know that no labor is the same, but I had enough of a pattern going that I was honestly scared to have another!
