Looking for some advice
I’m due my second baby in 1 day I had my little girl last April so very short time between having them both.. I’m so so nervous
My first labour was so long .. took nearly 72 hours from 1 to 5 cm then 5cm to baby in arms 19 hours .. with 2.30 hours of pushing .. baby wouldn’t come down so needed forceps .. I also had an epidural in the end as I was so tied and needed a rest not to mention the pain (obviously lol ) I did feel the need to push much later on when the doctors were getting the tools ready to use to help the baby out ..!! So I don’t know weather they made me push to early and I wasn’t ready ??
She was born 8lbs 12oz so rather big .. I recently had a growth scan at 32 weeks and baby was measuring 4lbs 13oz .. I’m just scared I’ll not be able to push baby out !! Will he be to big !! I have so much anxiety this time round
Please share you stories looking for some positive advice

I would say this, you know more of what to expect now, so somehow that does make things easier second time around. Also, your body will be much, much looser having given birth before.
Also, i'd never trust the estimated weights as they can be really off the mark, so don't stress about having a big baby - you never know what they will be. You've done it once, you can totally do it again. Good luck x
