second time + moms, what time of day did labor start?

I have a theory that prego moms of small children won't go into labor during a time of day while they are still needed by their other children. That you body knows to wait until 'a good time' when your other children are either sleeping or not solely dependent on you (partner get home from work, etc).

has anyone else found this to be true?

Re: second time + moms, what time of day did labor start?

Yes. All my labors, even my first, started late in the day. Sometimes around dinnertime, but usually later than that, like 9-10pm. I'm 39+ weeks right now with my 6th and I'm just waiting until baby wants to come. I know if it hasn't started by bedtime, it's not going to.

Re: second time + moms, what time of day did labor start?

Not true for me.
#1--went into labor in the middle of the night, had him at 4:21 in the afternoon.
#2--Went into labor in the afternoon (2pm maybe?) had baby at 1:30 am.
#3--went into labor late evening, had baby at 1:40am
#4--went into labor about 11 at night, had baby right at noon.

So the theory kind of works with #2 & #3, looking at when I *had* them, but not by when I went into labor, but kind of gets blown away by #4.

Re: second time + moms, what time of day did labor start?

My first was induced, so I went into labor in the morning and had her in the afternoon. But interesting question - My second I went into labor around 10pm, left for the hospital around 12am, and had the baby by 7am. It was really good timing because we had enough time to call my mom to come stay with my older DD who was sleeping. Basically she got to wake up to her grandma telling her she had a sister. So I don't know! I'm almost 37 weeks with #3 right now and I have been getting real contractions, but only later in the evening after my kids are in bed. Maybe you're right and my body is just waiting til the other two are settled before starting in on labor

My Mood:
#1 - water broke, headed to hospital maybe 12 hours before a horrific snowstorm. By the time we were discharged, the roads were clear
#2 - contractions intensified after DD was asleep but before ILs - who were in charge of DD for labor/delivery - were asleep.
I guess they were both pretty obliging!

Re: second time + moms, what time of day did labor start?

Definitely not the case here, although I wish it had been!

Baby #1, labor started at 5:00am and he was born 5:00pm.

Baby #2, water broke 6:30am and she was born 4:00pm.

Baby #3, labor started at 5:30am but kicked into high gear at 8:00pm, right as we were putting the other kids to bed. I told DH and he was like, "Hang on, let's get the kids to bed first." And I was like, "Ummmmm, we can't just leave them here and head to the hospital! Put them in the car and drop me off at the hospital until my mom can get to our house!" She was born at midnight.

Baby #4, labor woke me up at 2:00am all of a sudden. By 2:45am I knew we had to get to the hospital, as contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. We had to rouse 3 kids from bed in the middle of the night so DH could once again drop me off, alone, while we waited for my mom. She lives an hour away and didn't arrive at our house until 4:30am. DH almost missed that birth.
