I'm trying to hire a homebirth midwife, and after a few interviews have decided on one. My due date is August 26th, and she told me that she'll be on vacation until August 19th or 20th. I'm wondering how likely it is that this second baby will come early. My first was born two days before her due date.

BTW: My due date based on conception date is August 26th, but August 29th based on first day of last period. My first baby's due date was calculated according to first day of last period because we didn't know conception date. So maybe she was actually one day late.

Dd#1 = 2 days late, but that was the "adjusted" due date based on the ultrasound.

Ds#2 = 5 days late, no ultrasound. My mom said "Men are always late!"

#1 - 40 weeks, 4 days (altho labor started 40 weeks, 2 days )
#2- 40 weeks, 3 days
#3 - 40 weeks exactly

Does the midwife have a backup who could attend you at home if you gave birth during her vacation?

#1- 5 days early (I knew when I ovulated)

#2- 5 days early (I knew when I ovulated this time too)

But, they both looked like they were about a week late...apparently I cook 'em a little quick

DD was 8 days early and I knew during my last month that she would be early. Just a sense that she would be. My family just laughed at the "silly little pregnant girl". Proved them wrong .

#2 - Induced 3 weeks early, probably would have gone another week if I'd left well enough alone
#3 - 8 days early
#4 - Time will tell, but I'm hoping 1-2 weeks early, I hate this wait!

Just curious - did your second baby come earlier? I'm pregnant with my second and trying to guess if she'll be early (my first was 2 days late).


PS did you work for the MOS?

Well since this is a very old thread... I guess I can update #4 EDD.

#4 was 5 days late.


I can't believe she is about to be ONE!! : :
