I'm sitting here 3 days past my EDD with my 4th baby and wondering if there is any correlation between babies who cook longer and how those births go.
My first was born at 39w4d and was not too difficult for a first baby, 13 hours, though she was posterior for most of it.
My second was fabulous -- painfree and 5 hours, wonderful waterbirth -- at 40w4d.
My third was rough at 39w3d, though it was positioning related, he came out 'The Thinker' style, with his fist on his cheek after 14 hours.
So, in my case the late baby was by far the easiest. He was the only well positioned of the bunch too, which I know helped a TON. Any other moms of a few have anecdotal stories like this? Can you tell I am hoping this one takes after #2?
