Now I will say that the further I get in each pregnancy, the more I convince myself each time that baby will come early, lol. BUT...this time I keep having dreams. With my other 2 I wanted them to come early because I wanted to be done with pregnancy, but I really thought both would be late. Both times I really didn't feel the need to have things ready until 38wks or so.

This time I keep having dreams...one time the baby comes at 36 wks....another at 37 wks....the other dreams are more that something happens (kid breaks an arm, I get sick or something) that keeps me from being able to finish getting ready the last couple weeks. In the dreams I always think...should have had this done by 36 wks! I have these 2-3x a week now.

So I have no idea when this baby will come, but my dream conscience is compelling me to have my ducks in a row by 36 wks.

Anyone else with odd feelings?

I have a feeling he'll be a week to 10 days ahead of due date. We'll see!

the only weird feeling i have is that this baby will be born in the very early morning. wren was born in the middle of the night and all my birth dreams before labor reflected that. every single one of my birth dreams this time have taken place in sunlight.

but i am TOTALLY in the dark about when, gestation wise, this child will come. nor do i have any intuition about if there's a boy or girl in there. with wren, i was convinced she would come on 12/2 and she was born on 11/11 so i was pretty bad with that. however, i was also positive she was a girl (kept having dreams where i had a daughter named wren, which is how we came up with her name) and she was so i guess sometimes my intuition is okay. :

I had a "premonition" about ds's birthdate. Basically two weeks late. He was a week early! Ha! I, too, was not *quite* ready. I hadn't even packed a hospital bag I was so sure he'd be late. I have no feeling this time; I'm just planning ahead the best I can!

My official EDD is May 10, but I think DS will come on May 14. Although I hope he won't come until May 17! I've got some stuff to do for work that I want to finish on May 14! The reason I think he is coming on 5/14 is because that is the Friday after he was due and my DD was born on the Friday after her EDD. How's that for logic?

Part of me thinks the baby will come on the early side, but that is simply going by how I am feeling. And I am feeling DONE! With DD I didn't hit this point until about 36 weeks. My due date was moved from the 30th to the 28th, and I think that the first one was right. I would guess DD2 will arrive between the 25-28th. But who knows! With DD1 her due date was May 7 (moved from May 5) and she came on May 9th.

With DS, I had a window of a week where I felt he would come and I hit it dead center. With this one, I am feeling 4/26, but with a window of 4/21-4/28. My intuition about this baby has been pretty bad though. I thought it was a girl, but he's a boy, and I just don't feel the same connection to him I did with DS.

My delivery is scheduled for May 5th, but I have had a feeling for at least a month that he is going to come early. No reason to think that, just a "feeling".

that's funny because i have the 28th stuck in my head, but i'm not sure why.

i keep hoping for 5/5 because i think it'd be cool to have one kid born on 11/11 and one born on 5/5.

Last night I was not so sure I would make it to 35 weeks--the contractions were intense! I don't think I will make it to 40 weeks but I don't think I will have a baby in the next couple of weeks either.

In the back of my head, I think he'll make his appearance the last week of April, rather than May (I'm due 5/4). I have 2 kids with birthdays at the beginning and end of Feb., and I have one with a birthday the first of April, so I think my brain wants to assume he'll come the end of April so there will be some kind of symmetry with their birthdays or something. Yeah, I'm a nerd like that.

I have a feeling baby will arrive on May 8th. Not sure why. It's after my official due date. My 12 year old son thinks she will come on May 9th. My hunches so far have been right - gender, implantation and placenta site. I'll be interested to see if I'm right now too.

I'm meditating on May 22nd or 23rd, as long as baby is ready to come out of course. We'll see what happens! My mom was early (1-3 weeks) with all four of us so really I'm trying to keep the baby to STAY PUT till 39 weeks.

I would love a 5/5 baby too b/c I think 5/5/10 is an awesome birthday! Plus DS will think that the Cinco de Mayo celebrations are for him

I'm thinking the kiddo will come on 4/28 (my EDD is 5/6) purely because that's DH's birthday and he is adamant that he "doesn't want to have to share his birthday with the baby."

My first kiddo, I knew for some reason that he would absolutely not come early, and I didn't even fly up my MIL till a few days before the due date, which gave her time to unwind, us to attend my shower, and then I went into labor at 40+2, had him a day later.

This one ... well, from the start, I've felt the baby would come a week early, but I have no idea why. I have May 10th stuck in my brain, but I really hope it's a day or two after since my MIL flies in on the 10th; I'll be 39 weeks even. I hope this one, like last one, waits till Granna gets here and then shows up for her!!

I've had a sense of baby coming early but who knows. Is it fairly common for babies to arrive as 37-38 weeks?

I've kept feeling like this one would arrive on May 15th which is just a couple days after my due date. I'd rather have it come late than early so we'll see. It would be nice if it waited till my parents get here on either the 7th or 10th.

My husband is the opposite, he has always wanted a baby born on his birthday.

I work at night, so all my good buddies work at night too, and I can't imagine laboring/delivering during the day! Our unit is just a different place during the day!

As far as how many weeks- not a clue!

babies definitely don't seem to come during business hours when left to their own devices!

i went into labor with wren at 7pm and she was born at 3:37a, so i labored all in the dark. i definitely had a feeling she'd be born in the middle of the night (beyond the dreams, which i didn't attach much significance to at the time). i'm feeling like i might go into labor later at night this time and have an early morning baby...like a 6am-er or somethin.

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I have had a very strong feeling this baby would come on May 10, 16 days before my due date. Prior to this morning, our plan was to do an amnio @ 37 weeks on 05/05 and deliver that day if her lungs were mature. If not, we would just wait until 05/12 to deliver.

Today at my doctor's appointment, my fabulously amazing new ObGyn told me that she had given it some serious thought and that given my history of delivering healthy, mature babies in the 38th week (three so far), the risk involved with an amnio and the high likelihood of inconclusive results, she wants to skip the amnio and just "split the difference between the two weeks and deliver the baby on May 10! She asked me if I was comfortable with that and I just laughed and said yes.

I knew I'd be late the first 2, prepared to be late the third (but went into labor on my EDD), but with my fourth earthside, I kept having dreams I'd go early (as early as 30 weeks in one dream!!). I got everything ready in a tizzy in my 34th week (when I'd previously waited till 38 or 39 weeks) and developed pre-e and had to deliver at 35w5d. This time, I feel like I'll go a little early, but I am hoping to make it to May. I don't ever want to have to leave another baby in the NICU!

AT 33w4d I told DH that I hadn't packed my bag yet and I needed to for some strange reason. I was admitted to the hospital the next day LOL

I told several people that even though my amnio was scheduled (originally) for March 30th that I thought she'd be here earlier than that and I was even afraid for DH to go out of town the 18th thru the 21st. I was admitted again the next day.

Of course I felt "dates" with all of them and was WAY wrong. This is the only time I've ever been right.

I've had a feeling that this guy will come in April... although with an EDD of 5/1 I guess that's not stretching it too much. I don't know if it's wishful thinking or now. I agree with the OP -- I'm done. I'm at 35 1/2 weeks and just so tired. Really wishing that I could go on maternity leave soon. Anyway, he'll probably be late. Honestly, I need him to wait until 5/8, since that's when my assistant is done with classes and can take over for me. I guess I'll just have to be patient and see what happens.

With my first I was so sure he would be late that I didnt pack any hospital bags and my water broke at 4 am at exactly 38 weeks. So I think this baby girl may come early too. I am due May 22 but I bet she will be 2 weeks early. Although my dhs mom just passed away unexpectedly on Valentines day and her bday is May 24th so maybe the baby will wait until her bday.

Hmmm, this is my first and I have NO idea! I'm not getting any "feelings" what so ever. We've got a really busy summer ahead of us so I would like him to come a little early but no one has had an early baby in my family so I'm pretty sure he'll be late. I was 3 weeks late and so was my husband so if our child is anything like us he'll take his sweet time. I'm almost 34 weeks and so far only 1 BH so this baby is definitely not ready. I'm also not exactly ready to be a mother so I think he'll hang out until I'm so uncomfortable that I'll be begging him to come out. That's so me....... But that being said I'm really excited to meet him as well.
