I know this question gets asked every so often but the existing threads don't seem to have enough of the information that I'm looking for.
I just found out that I have another week of vacation time that I would absolutely *love* to use before the baby arrives by scheduling it for the week before the edd. Obviously when waiting for labor to spontaneously begin it's impossible to predict exactly when that will be, but I'm wondering what my odd are of having DS2 at 40w or less are. It seems like gestation time for 2nd, 3rd, 4th + children varies greatly but hopefully I can gain some sense of direction from your input. I don't mind using some of the time before baby rather than after baby, but if there's a decent likelyhood of going to 41+ weeks...then I may as well just save it. TIA
My DS1 was born at 39w 0d. I was charting, so my dating is accurate.
