Third time's the charm?I don't know if that's what the question implied, that perhaps the third time around things are more likely to be faster, easier, and better all around. For me I was certainly hopeful after hearing a few friends' stories of their quick 3rd-baby deliveries. But my third came slowly, just as my other two had. I was stronger through the contractions, and more laid back about the birth as it approached, so those aspects improved. But my third birth actually was more difficult than my second - and I was disappointed in my dreams of a 3 hour quick labor.
As for size:
If baby #4 should choose to come my way I am hoping to go into the pregnancy expecting a long labor instead of a short one!
