Man, y'all are good! I barely remember my littles names much less the exact dates.

My first two were past 41 weeks and the second one I carried longer.

My third was on her EDD.

None were induced.

1-a week "late"
2-about a week "early"
3-about 10 days "early"

I completely don't like the "wildcard" theory. One of the midwives I interviewed was trying to scare me out of a uc with #3 by using this tactic. Needless to say I did not use her for prenatal care. My labors are all relatively quick and easy. #3 was a bit more painful but I think that he was positioned facing the wrong way. As soon as I got on my hands and knees he was born within 20-30 minutes. Don't let them scare you! All labors are different and stay healthy, exercise, eat well and you should have nothing to worry about.

#1 5 days "late" (7lbs 2 oz)

#2 17 days "early" (7lbs 7oz)

#3 6 days "early" (7lbs 6oz)

#4 16 days "early" (7lbs 5oz)

I am positive about the due dates for children 2-4, #1 kind of surprised us. They come when they are ready.

Good luck!

I went into labor naturally every time.

#3 was definitely the wildcard for me!

At-home mom to a teenager, an infant, and three in between!

#3 was my "wild card" labor, in a good way - easy one hour first stage, compared to 20 hour first stages for #1 and #2.

#3 32weeks - abruption

I've heard about the 3rd baby being a wildcard, too. In my case it was true.
