Okay okay, I know there's absolutely no way of knowing, every pregnancy/baby is different, baby will come when baby is ready.. but I'm just curious what people would guess!
Some little tidbits which might make one think this baby will come sooner than dd did, or later!

-My mom was induced at 43 weeks with my brother, had scheduled c-sections with the rest of us. I have no sisters so I can't compare their history. So I thought that maybe I'd have long pregnancies but dd came (not induced) at 39 weeks.

-I was taking milk thistle for a few days before labor began, which my mw says can cause premature labor. So maybe dd would have stayed in longer!

-I was in labor on the full moon last time, and the full moon will occur when I am 38 weeks 4 days, and incidentally, last time labor started when I was 38 weeks 4 days (although it was just before midnight, so very close to 38w 5d)

-last time, I could tell my body started gearing up for labor *right after* I took care of something that I think would have emotionally held me back in labor. I lost my mucus plug within hours, and was in labor 3 days after that. dd had no vernix whatsoever. That sort of makes me think had I been able to emotionally "let go" earlier last time, she might have been ready to come a little sooner.

-Some say girls develop/mature quicker in the womb than boys. I'm having a boy this time.

June 6 popped into my head after reading your thread title but before reading your full post.

June 6 would put you at 43ish weeks, so it IS possible. Gosh though, that would be tough!


Maybe your sil's wedding day is the emotional thing you need to get past in order to go into labor? I'm just teasing.
