for mamas of more than 2. DS1 was born 2 days "early" of the due date I had for him. DS2 was born 1 week "late" from what my mw best guess was. Was wondering if there was a pattern to the following kiddos that were born?
Just curious ;-)
I don't have a pattern, my first 4 came on their due dates or the wee morning hours the next day. So I "thought" I had a system going! Only to discover that wasn't true! I don't usually make it to my due dates anymore, but some have come a week or more early, some have surprised us and come the day before. We're just always left guessing!
DS1 was born at 40w3d, DS2 was born at 41w2d...so I'm assuming this baby will also be late (and actually hoping so since my parents will be away on non-transferable cruise and won't return until I am 41w!!!). I definitely want my mom around to help with caring for my other children when the new baby is born. I guess we'll just wait and see!
Mine have all been "early".
#1 was 39 weeks and my longest pregnancy, probably because she was breech. 9lbs 2oz
#2 was 37 weeks exactly. - 7lbs 10oz
#3 was 37½ weeks - 9lbs 8oz
#4 was 37w 2d - 9lbs
#5 was 38w 1d - 7lbs 15oz
#6 was 37w 6d - 10lbs 9oz
#7 was 37w 2d - 7lbs 10oz
#8 was 38w 1d - 6lbs 10oz (This was after my WLS)
