1st baby: 38w1d (medical induction)
2nd baby: 39w6d (on his own)
3rd baby: 40w6d (stripped my membranes to see if it would kick weeks of prodromal labor into active labor)

My pregnancies just got longer each time, although I'm of the opinion that my 1st baby should have cooked 2-3 weeks longer.

1st: 42 + 1
2nd: 42 weeks

First may have been longer, but he was taken by cesarean after a day of labor and worsening pre-eclampsia. Second was a 3 day labor, so I think the first would have been too (or longer), if I'd been able to avoid the c/s.

first- 42 weeks 2 days (irregular menstrual cycle meant it could have been closer to 41 weeks 2 days). Entered labor naturally with srom but it ended in a c/s ~32 hrs later.

second- 40 weeks 3 days (very confident of conception date). Membranes stripped at my request. Labor started naturally with contractions starting ~3hrs before srom and I had my vbac!

I was 39w3d (9 pm, though!) when I went into labor with #1, she was born the next morning, so 39w4d. I heard all about how second babies came 'sooner' and blah blah blah. So by the time I hit 40w I felt overcooked! Ds came out at 40w3d. I hate to even guess when the as-yet-theoretical-#3 would choose to appear. Of course, I have a strong feeling that ds wanted/needed to be the particular astrological sign - the 'border' was just at his due date - and also that for, whatever reason, he wanted to be born on a Wednesday. Without those factors, who knows when he would have appeared.
