DS was born at 37+1, so I've been fully expecting this little one to come early. I am now at 38+4 and still waiting. If you carried later with a subsequent child than an earlier one, how much was the difference?

I am currently at 40w 1d w/ babe #5, we're awaiting to see if s/he will follow the pattern set by the other kiddos of coming 6 days later than the last child.

DD1 was born at 43+1 weeks 

DD2 at 43+6 weeks

So, only 5 days later, but at that end of the pregnancy let me tell you 5 days feels like an eternity!!

DD - 34w2d

DS1 - 39w1d

DS2 - 41w2d

 

So glad I did not have a fourth - with this trend I would have gone to 43 weeks or later!

First came at 38+4, second at 41+3. And boy, those last three weeks with #2 were loooooong. Second one comes earlier? Ha!

I went into labor on my due date with #1 and he was born the next day.  With #2, she came 11 days after my due date.

DS1 was born at 37 weeks exactly, so I expected my second to be a little ahead, too.  But nope :)  He was born at 40+1

ds1- 38 weeks (induced after my water broke)

ds2- 40w1d (natural labor)

 

I was expecting an early baby the second time too. The extra 2 weeks really messed with me! lol

DS was born at 37+2 according to the wheel and 36+6 according to the dating ultrasound (spontaneous ROM followed by unaugmented labor)

DD was born exactly at 39 weeks (according to my ovulation date!; labor started on its own again, no water breakage this time though, luckily til the end).

DS (DC #1): 39 weeks by castor oil

DD (DC #2): 41 weeks after repeated castor oil and other attempts starting at 39 weeks :)

 

Both due dates were solid as I knew ovulation dates. I did some cohosh the day of DC #2's birth.

1. ds 40 weeks 7 days, 7lbs 15oz

2. dd 40 weeks 9 days, 7lbs 9oz

3. dd 40 weeks 20 days, 8lbs 8oz (i set my dates, medically she would have been 44 weeks from lmp but i have late ovulations)

4. currently 39 weeks w/ d? and will report if we make it too late!

 

I measured high and big with all of them, but they had no interest in arriving anywhere near their due dates.  first involved interventions (gel), 2nd two all natural and much much easier!!!  except the waiting part..... especially that last one.

 

we've dubbed me the 'slow-cooker' and joke that the safest place to store a baby is in me, it won't show up for 10 months...
