i'm gearing up for my 2nd LO and was curious about everyone else's 2nd deliveries. my dd was born on her due date and she gave me an overall easy pregnancy and birth but this time around it has been anything but easy which has me scared for the delivery. did your 2nd birth differ a lot from your 1st? was he/she early, late or on time? how long was the labor compared to your 1st?
also, were there any signs leading up to the beginning of labor that you noticed? i have had very achy hips and pelvic pressure so i'm wondering if my baby boy is gearing up for an early arrival.
