Anyone think they'll go early?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
I am just wondering who the first of us to hold their little one will be. I am notoriously on my due date, so I don't think it will be me. Anyone want to guess they'll be the first

I think salt_pheonix will be the first to go, since her water broke already. We have a few moms on bedrest too so if SF's uterus reseales itself then the bedrest mamas are next on the list.

I will watch my due date come and go I'm sure.

I am hoping I will go early, but I doubt it. My ob won't let me go over, but I may make it to my due date.

What do you mean by your OB won't let you go over?

Once you think you will go early, you get at least 42 weeks

I think I might. I had that feeling with DC1 too, and went into labor naturally with him right around 37 weeks 3 days. His pregnancy was full of BH ctx that started early (15 weeks) and came very frequently, and I started losing chunks of mucus plug at 30 weeks. This pregnancy has been the exact same, so we'll see if the trend holds true. It will be interesting to see how it works out for all of us.

I have bleeding issues, fast labours and deliveries and a history of early dilation and weeks of prodromal labour. Believe me I won't be figting to stay pregnant longer.

I'm thinking about 38 weeks. But we'll see.

I will likely be early according to my due date, but not real early. Though dh said today he felt like this baby was gonna be earliest. I don't think prior to 37weeks, perhaps 38 weeks or so. YIKES - that's a Leap Year Baby!

I know I won't be the first, but I'm guessing I'll go early again. Dd almost came at 37+2 and again at 38+1, eventually holding out until 38+6. This time I've been having consistent contractions if I don't watch it, and am already having slight cervical changes. So I'm guessing between 37 and 38 weeks (but hopefully not the 29th!)

I've been assuming that this baby will come between 37 and 38 weeks. DD1 was born at 38 weeks, DD2 at 37 2/7 weeks. I'm 1 cm dilated, which is more than I was at 31 weeks with DD2. But my BHs are not nearly as bad as they were with DD1.

I've got the week of Feb 20 in my head as when I'll likely deliver.

Im betting it is one of us too although, I am hoping it isnt too early. Salt is a little further along than me. If all goes as planned though my cerclage will come out in 8 weeks

I'm planning to carry my twins to 38wks2d, then go into spontaneous labor My OB has said he'll get "nervous" if I go over 38 weeks, and I just don't want to have to fight him about induction. So I'm telling the babies that 38wks2d is our time. I'm sure they'll cooperate

I am guessing I will give birth in the 38-39 week range. My girls were both exactly 10 days early. My mom had all her babies between 10 and 4 days early. My grandmother had all her babies early. My family just seems to birth in the 38-39 week range.

I am thinking I will likely birth either the last week of Feb. or the first few days of March. And, I would LOVE a leap year baby.

I had ds at 40+4 so I dont think I will go early. As much as Im starting to detest being pregnant I know taking care of a newborn is a million times harder so Im in no rush.

My track record so far is 37w, 38w5d, 40w1d. If this one follows the trend, I will be 42w! :

I imagine I'll be somewhere between 38 and 42 weeks. :

I'm 31.5 weeks, still leaking, no infections or signs of labor...

This is one race I'm not looking forward to winning!

This is VERY different than my first 2.
DD#1= 42 weeks (water broke)
DD#2= 36.5 weeks (water broke during pushing)
DD#3= 31 weeks WATER BROKE!!!!

I never thought I'd say it, but I hope I'm still laying in this hospital bed in a MONTH!!!

DD#1 came at 38 weeks with NO warning! She was fully baked too

I'm assuming this baby will be early, based on that, but I really don't know.
