Anyone think they'll go early? - Page 3

post #41 of 48
I may be in the running for last place with my end of March due date. I had a dream that I would have the baby on April 2nd. DS was born 3 days before his due date, so if this baby is like big bro that should be around March 25.

I am def not going to be first!

We are going to be having birth announcements here within a few weeks! It is hard to believe. I hope they don't come too soon!

AG...........so much to do!

Nope. I'm sure she'll be at least a week late like her sisters

My twins were born at 38w3d and were right at 7 lbs. each. My OB at the time also wanted to make sure they were born at around 38 weeks. I did concede to an induction (my bp was high - only that day though) but in hindsight I would have waited longer. Live and learn. Just remember that these are YOUR babies and YOUR birth so no matter how "nervous" he gets, he can't induce you without your consent. Plus, the studies that OB's refer to for twins doing better if they don't go too far past 38-weeks are flimsy at best.

Two babies...I can't tell you what an amazing journey you have awaiting you. Such a magical time.

My 1st was born 4 days after her due date, and my 2nd was born 4 days before his due date. So I doubt I'll be "early", but I wouldn't mind the birth happening a few days before the due date - I start feeling a little desperate once that due date creeps up on me, no matter how much I tell myself I'm going to be patient. Plus I think it would be kind of neat to have the baby born on Easter sunday. That's only 3 days before my due date, and close to a full moon, so not too far outside the realm of possibilities, right?

I do tend to think I'll go slightly before my due date, though, for whatever reason. I wouldn't mind the extra time to prepare for baby, but I know by 40 weeks I'm going to be super uncomfortable, so I hope I'm not wrong about that.

I'm not counting on going early, but I am technically due February 27th, so I guess I'll be on the early side of the birth announcements. I've been hanging out in the March due date club all through this pregnancy specifically so that I wouldn't be at the very end of all the birth announcements. That would drive me crazy.

(Besides, I just like the mammas here in March!)

I have NO CLUE! Im 22 and this is my first pregnancy. Everyone keeps talking about braxton hicks and contractions already and things like that and I honestly dont know that I have experienced any of that yet! I get some cramps and pressure and pain here and there but figure its all normal. So, that being said... my husband has 2 other kids (a 3yr old girl and a 12 yr old son) and he seems to think that our little one will be about 2 weeks early. I thought the same thing but after reading things on this site Im wondering now if she is gonna be late!? I hate not knowing...lol

I have a feeling this one will come a bit early between Feb. 28 and March 2. My due date that I calculated, was March 2nd, but the doc made it for March 7th according to the u/s. I'd be very surprised if I make it to the 7th.
