I am pregnant with my third and will not allow an induction of any kind. My first was born at 40 weeks and 6 days and my third was induced at 35 weeks (due to malpractice IMO, but that is for a different thread). 

 

My current midwife team is amazing and they keep saying they feel I am going to go early. Since I have nothing to compare it to I was wondering if those of you that have had 3 or more naturally are typically pregnant the same amount of time or if you go into labor sooner with each pregnancy?

 

I know there is only so much I can do to prepare, but i am just curious what your experiences have been.

So my 3rd pg was the wild card!

Wow! I hope that doesn't happen this time around! But it looks like other than that you were pretty much the same with each baby. Thanks for sharing! Anyone else?

Baby # 1-induced at 41+4

Baby #2-40+4

Baby #3 40+4

My first was 40 weeks plus 12 days
Second was 40 weeks plus 10 days
The 3rd I had a c section at 39 weeks
The 4th I am hoping for a VBAC before 40 weeks, but not too optimistic that anything will happen before 40 weeks!
Was curious about this myself, if you have had post term pregnancies if these continue....

First baby spontaneous labor at 40 weeks plus 12 days.
Second baby spontaneous labor at 40 weeks 10 days.
3rd baby was born by c section at 39 weeks, no labor.
4th coming in a few weeks! Hoping for a chance to have a VBAC before 40 weeks, but wondering if the post term trend usually repeats itself....

#1-40w 1d, induced(was already contracting but it was prodromal)
#2-40w 4d, spontaneous
#3-39w 6d or 40w 1d (depending on the date I used), spontaneous

So not "early" enough to count as much of a difference if you count it as early at all.

#1 - 41 weeks

#2 - 41w 2d

#3 - 42w

 

 

Hmmm.... that looks scary, lol.  My last one did not appear to be older than my #2 and I know he was conceived a bit later in my cycle so I suspect he may not have really been 42w, but just was based on last AF.

#1 41w6d
#2 35w5d (died prior to birth, labor was spontaneous)
#3 38w3d

I was sure of my dates each time. #3 weighed exactly the same as #1 and was 1in longer. I was very surprised to have her before 41 weeks! All 3 were spontaneous labors, UCs.
