I'm just curious how many weeks you were when you had your third baby? I have heard that baby 1 is usually about 41ish weeks, baby 2 is usually about 40 weeks, and baby 3 can be a wildcard.<br><br>
I was induced at 40w0d with #1<br>
Had #2 naturally at 38w6d<br>
Am currently 35 weeks with #3<br><br>
Please share how many weeks you were with all 3 (or more!)<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Both of my boys were born at 40 weeks exactly, each born one day before their due dates, the first in the hospital, the second at home. I was never induced, went into labor naturally both times. I am pregnant with my 3rd, and I don't anticipate it being any different this time, but we'll have to see!

My labor was also longer for #3. It really is a wild card! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I've heard this from a lot of women. One woman in my mom's group just had her second recently and the labor was several hours longer, and the woman who started the group said her 3rd took longer because he was 1.5lbs bigger than her first two babes! I hope I keep with my pattern of the labor being shorter each time. My first labor was 20 hours, my second was 8 hours.
