I hope I don't, because I want the baby to have as much time in there as s/he needs!!
Anyone heard this/experienced this? Or was this woman talking out of her rear end?
I wonder if she meant that many mamas gestate longer in their first pregnancy, and not as long with their subsequent pregnancies? So a vbac mama by default isn't a "first pregnancy mama"? It's certainly not a "sure thing" and I think the studies that are out there show it's only a matter of a few days earlier on average... but it's one of those comments you see a lot (the "second babes come sooner" thing).
