I am 38 +5 with my second child. My first was born at 38+1, so I am already feeling like this one is "late". I just want to know if there are many people out there whose second or later children were born "later" than their first. I was under the impression that first babies were usually the late ones.

They were all pretty much the same at 41 weeks and change.

don't count on this one being early! my first was born at 38+4. my second was born at 40+4 : even though he was only a few days past his due date, it felt like a lot more.

don't get your hopes up for another early one or the next couple of weeks could feel really long and be pretty miserable. i know they were for me

Interesting thread! My first was 40+2, I wonder what the second one will be. (not sure of dates so I will probably never know)

36w
9 months (literally, from conception to delivery!! I was amazed!) so that would be 40w? we had differences of opinion regarding EDD (acc'd to EDD itw as 42w+1)

The first baby was clearly premature now that I look back at it, the second being SOOO healthy and we had so many problems with my first that NO ONE ever told me were b/c she was premature or to expect them.

Ds1 42+5
Ds2 42
DD1 40+2 by 9 week US; by my tracking cycles and DTD 40+1 (Stillbirth)
DD2 again this one varies -- LMP 40+6; 13 week US 4+3; 20 week US 39+5; my calculation was 39+3 to 39+5

My first was 40w 4d
My 2nd was 40w 9d (oops I mean 41w 2d)

My sister's births seemed to take longer and longer each time. She was about 2 weeks post date with each, but close to 3 weeks post with her 4th child.

38W3days
37W exactly

This coming from a woman whose mother gave birth at 42W3days exactly with each child, and whose six sisters averaged 42.5 to a full 44(six babies from two sisters gestated a full 44 weeks). I was fully expecting my kids to come AFTER 42 weeks. My daughter, to me, was a full month early, at least! Had my son been born a day earlier, because I transported to the hospital during labor, he would have been in special care simply because they'd have considered him "premature!" Crazy.

First: 40w exactly

Second: 40w 1day (only 3 hours into that day, though! )

Both spontanteous labors, unprovoked by anything.
