Has anyone had all their children come at the same gestation? My first two came at exactly 39.1 and I'm feeling like maybe it will happen again.

3 of mine came close, 39.1, 39 and 38.6. The other 2 were 36.4 and 37.6. All were spontaneous births.

39+5, 40+1 and 40+1, so not exact, but pretty darn close I think..... (Labor with DD1 was augmented and I think she would have actually been born at exactly 40 if not)

Mine have all been at least 41 weeks, except DD2.  DD1 was 42 + 2, and DD2 was right on her due date.

Mine were 41+3 (induced), 40 (exactly), and 39. Getting a little shorter each time, we'll see about #4 smile.gif

First was 41 weeks

Second was 41 weeks and a day

Third was 4 days early.

 

All spontaneous. The first 2 were girls, my third was a boy.  I'm pregnant with #4 another girl and am really wondering if my girls cook to at least 41 weeks and boys come early. All labors have been cut in half time wise too. 8 hours first, 4 hours second, 2 hours third.  Wondering if she will come in 1 hour? Better stay close to home just in case!

My babies were relatively close: 41+1, 41+3, 42+3, 42+0, and 41+2. This time I am hoping for 41+6, which will be Christmas Day. wink1.gif

I'll be the lady who irritates...

#1. 40 weeks exactly
#2. 39 weeks, 4 days
#3. 40 weeks exactly
#4. 41 weeks, 4 days! OMG. It was crazy!
All spontaneous. I took a lot of vitamin c with number 4 bc my water broke with the other 3. Water didn't break with #4 until I was pushing him out.

My first was 40+6, but my other three all came right about 39wks. That is to say, I was in labor at 39+0 with each of those, though my long labors mean they were born within a day or two or three of that. The first three were boys and the fourth a girl. So, I'm expecting this next baby to be born somewhere around 39wks, as well, though I know they can always throw you for a loop!

43+2

41+4

41+2

 

I'm 37 weeks right now w/ #4 & was thinking of downing a gal. of RRL tea to induce as I miss sleep sooo badly & have a lot more aches & pains as I'm certainly not younger but looking back at my "cook" times, I deemed it unwise. #1 was a boy & I'm carrying this baby the same way I did w/ him. I'm hoping all boys don't push me over the 43 mark.

Did I say loop? Why, yes, this baby threw me for quite a loop! At 36+ weeks, my water broke spontaneously, then he flipped breech, then I developed pre-e. I knew to expect the unexpected, but never thought of THAT!! bigeyes.gif He was born Friday early AM at what I consider 36w4d, though dates were up for debate.

Well I only have two, but they both came exactly two days before their due dates. Due dates were assigned with ultrasound in the ninth week of pregnancy :) Hoping the next does the same, it's such a pleasant surprise when they come before they're due.
