I am expecting my fourth child in a couple of weeks, and was wondering what the chances are of going into labour naturally were. My other three pregnancies were induced, the first at 37 weeks due to pre-eclampsia - this labour took 27 hours, the second at 38 weeks due to severe vomiting and dehydration - this took 13 hours and the third took about 5 hours (this labour used both the gel and then a drip) and was induced due to myself having an injury. My concern is that my body wont know how to go into labour itself and I will be overdue and have to be induced again, or otherwise I will go into labour and not know the signs, I feel like a first time mum all over again, the only difference is I know what labour feels like. Will my body go into labour when its ready or am I likely to need to be induced once the 40 weeks are up?
