LOL!

I have just been thinking about this for a couple reasons. My first two kids were not planned, so I was very cycle ignorant. I knew they were long but I didnt really know what that meant. After tracking to TTC this babe, I got pretty good at pinpointing ovulation dates. I know realize that my last two kids EDD dates (because my cycles have always been uniform) were actual about a week "late" because they went from LMP vs O date. This time we went with known O date. So now I think that my first two were "actually" 3 days before true due date and second baby a week before true due date. So if that is the case, I am wondering if this baby will come "early". Granted, she could totally come at 43 weeks for all I know, lol.

And then I started having all of these dreams about her coming at like 37 weeks. I have them over and over.

Knowing that none of it really means anything, lol, it still has me thinking.

My daughter was born at 36 weeks, 7 lb 4 oz.

I'm curious as to whether this means I'll have this baby early, too. She was a good weight, very ready to come out with no problems breathing or anything, great APGARs and very healthy. (And yes, I am 100 percent sure of dates). I had ROM before labor started.

I figure because I'll be expecting this one to come at 36 weeks, it's going to come at 42 weeks.

But I'm packing the labor bag at 35 weeks anyway. Wish I had last time.

Ds was 3 days early and 9 lbs 13 oz.
Dd1 was 4 days early and 9lbs.
Dd2 was 1 day early and 8lbs 13oz.

All early, all big.

DD1: on her EDD 9lb. 3oz. (12 hr. labor)
DD2: 41 weeks & 6 days 10lb. (2 hr. labor)

DD came at 43+1 weeks, 8lb 13oz. I'm really hoping that this one comes at least a little earlier, because it was incredibly stressful waiting that long, particularly trying to hold out for a HB.

Bjerme - you give me some hope that it's at least possible! That's a big difference though. Do you mind me asking if the second two kids have the same father as the first? (Very nosy I know , and ignore me if you don't feel like sharing, but I've heard that paternal genes can also influence length of gestation. Maybe I should have got pregnant by someone other than DH this time )

#1, DD, 10 days past her due date and 10lbs 4 oz
#2 DS, 8 days past his due date and 7lbs 7oz.

They have different dads, and DD's dad now has 5 nieces and nephews that were all in the 8-10lb range - big babies definitely run on his side .

#1 was 36w0 days - 6lbs 14 oz

#2 was 36w3 days - 7lbs 3oz

#3 was 36w3 days - 8lbs 1oz

I was positive of my dates on all babies and did not have GD. I never gained more than 15lbs. and was below my starting weight after each baby was delivered.

Ds- 39 wks 7lbs. 14oz.

He wasn't planned though so I just had a rough idea on my dates and we never did any US. Our midwife thought that we seemed like a 41 wk gestation baby when he was born based on the placenta and a number of other things...so who knows.

I'm hoping this next one will just come when he/she is ready and healthy. I like to think in terms of due seasons instead of due dates

Enjoying life with DH since 05/04 and our two boys Oliver 02/07 and Theodore 07/10

Elizabeth was born at 42 weeks exactly (sure of dates) and was 7 lbs. 11 oz. and 20 inches long. She was so obviously perfectly cooked that I am expecting #2 will go long as well.

I'm Kellie :, married to Chris , and mom to one baby girl (7/12/09).

My first son was born two days before his EDD at 7lbs10oz and my second son was born 8 days after his EDD at 7lbs13oz. Not too much of a size difference at all.

DS#1 - 37 Weeks exactly, 5lbs, 6 oz.
DD#1 - 38 W 1 day, 7 lbs, 5 oz.
DS#2 - 31 W 5 D (but I personally think he was ~2 weeks further along). Lost due to placental abruption, but he was just shy of 5 lbs
DS#3 - cesarean scheduled for Mar 22 (37 Weeks exactly), and his last ultrasound at 33 weeks already estimates him at 5 lbs. So he's on track to be my biggest baby.
