I am wondering, for those of you whose first birth was induced, but vaginal delivery, and had a natural 2nd birth, was the 2nd birth early, late, or on-time.

I'm just wondering if induction on first birth plays any role in timing of 2nd baby's arrival.

I don't know if I really count as induced. My water broke and had meconium in it at 41.5 weeks, but labor didn't start. So, I was put on pitocin and more pitocin and my labor finally began.

The second child came at 41 weeks exactly.

I was induced first and natural second. I doubt one affects the other, but who knows. I was 4-5 days late with that second baby. And 2 days early with the third.

DD1 was induced at 36 weeks. DD2 came (naturally) on her due date.

With ds1, I was induced at 38 weeks. Ds2 came at 41 weeks, 4 days.

My doc told me that when your first birth is induced/medically managed the second is anyone's guess. It could be a great second birth (shorter, smoother, easier), act like a first birth (longer, more drawn out) or start & stop sporadically as your body figures out what to do w/out pitocin.

My second labor was ~9am-4:20pm, easy stuff. Good luck

I was induced with my first. It was a c/s but I was told by my OB that since I got to 10cm with my next birth I would labor like a second time mom but push like a first. My second birth was at 37 wks 4 days completly natural pushed for 5 mins. I don't know if it makes any difference though. All though this pg I would love to go at 38 wks or so......
