my mom has a fun theory that most (not all, of course!) 2nd babies are born very close to their EDDs, and so far every mom of more than one i've asked has backed this up. i'd love to hear how accurate it is here. it's important that you answer about your second child and not your 3rd, 4th, etc, but if you want to add something about when your other children were born, i'd love to hear it! thanks!

My second was 20 days early. My Mother's second was 2 months early. For both of us it was the baby born furthest from his due date.

My closest was #3 who was born the day before her due date and my Mom's third (me) born ON my due date

DD was born on her due date. (Can't really compare with my other kids, because #1 was born a week early by induction, and #3 isn't quite here yet!)

DD1 was born at 39 wks, 5 days and DD2 at 40 weeks on the dot...so as much as I mock "due dates," my kids so far have cooked according to textbook! Let's see what DC3 does...

I probably mess up the results, but #1 was 4 weeks early and #2 was 7 weeks early. So yeah, nowhere near the due date, lol.

I voted +/- one day, but I'm probably not the best example, because so far all 4 of my babies have been +/- less than 10 hours from their edd going by my lmp. None have been born on their edd though; 2 the day before, 2 the day after. The closest was my second, coincidentally enough, at 7 minutes after midnight, so just barely the day after his edd.

My first was two weeks late. My second two weeks early. So the second time around I had a month less pregancy and also was WAY behind in preparations because I was expecting a late baby....

My first was 6 days early. My second was 12 days past the edd. I do think my body tried to go into labor earlier than that, but because of her positioning (I think...I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on tv ) it stopped.

DD1 was born 6 days after her due date...though probably would have taken a day or so longer or maybe even more if my slow leak hadn't led to a hospital transfer and 12 hours of pitocin!

Dd2 was born two weeks after her due date...though I did have a lot of emotional stress keeping her in, I think, until I took the castor oil and gave my body/baby permission to get started!

That's a little funny. My first was due Feb 21 amd was born Feb 6th. The one I am baking right now is due May 13th. . .I just hope he's born before May 20th when my midwife leaves town! Maybe I have a shot
