How many weeks were you when you had your third? - Page 2

post #21 of 50
39weeks 1day

Went into labor on my own. Vaginal birth.

FWIW, 1st was 42 weeks, vaginal birth, induced with castor oil, #2 was 38 weeks, 2 days, vaginal birth, water broke on its own during the night. Born the next morning.

#1 39+6 induced b/c ROM 12hr no ctx (wish I'd known better)
#2 41+3 I had a week or so of prodromal labor.
#3 40+3 I was so surprised when my labor started. I woke up thinking I had another week or so, and by mid afternoon I was holding my baby.

The wild card theory totally scared me. I was preoccupied with the possibility of a difficult labor. I did not at all expect it to be as quick and easy as it was!

May yours be quick and easy, but not shockingly so!

Man, y'all are good! I barely remember my littles names much less the exact dates.

My first two were past 41 weeks and the second one I carried longer.

My third was on her EDD.

None were induced.

1-a week "late"
2-about a week "early"
3-about 10 days "early"

I completely don't like the "wildcard" theory. One of the midwives I interviewed was trying to scare me out of a uc with #3 by using this tactic. Needless to say I did not use her for prenatal care. My labors are all relatively quick and easy. #3 was a bit more painful but I think that he was positioned facing the wrong way. As soon as I got on my hands and knees he was born within 20-30 minutes. Don't let them scare you! All labors are different and stay healthy, exercise, eat well and you should have nothing to worry about.

#1 5 days "late" (7lbs 2 oz)

#2 17 days "early" (7lbs 7oz)

#3 6 days "early" (7lbs 6oz)

#4 16 days "early" (7lbs 5oz)

I am positive about the due dates for children 2-4, #1 kind of surprised us. They come when they are ready.

Good luck!
