Wanted to know about due dates and subsequent pregnancies.<br><br>
Basically - when you had your second babies, did it mimic the EDD schedule of your first? If you were a week late with your first, did you also run late with your second?<br><br>
If your 2 weeks early, was your second 2 weeks late (which would be a month variance?) Or do they tend to follow the same pattern?

I wish mine counted, but I was induced at 38 weeks with #1. I kinda thought I might go early with #2 because of that, but he was born 1 day before his edd. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I actually liked it better though because you could tell he was ready to be born, unlike dd who was induced. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

#1-10 past edd<br>
#2-7 before edd<br><br>
I've always heard that for many women the second or subsequent tend to be earlier than the first. But I know many women irl that went past their edd with both #1 and #2.

#1 was born 4 days before DD<br>
#2 was born 3 days before DD.<br><br>
Mine seem to like being born on the Friday before their DD. I was born on a Friday, as was my mother. For us it seems to be a friday thing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

My midwife mentioned some study that was done with midwifery clients with very low interventions in their pregnancies. She said it showed that generally the 2nd pregnancy was, I think, 3 or 4 days shorter than the first gestation. Kenna was born 3 days before her EDD, so she's expecting this little guy about a week before his.<br><br>
Of course, we aren't definite on my conception date, so my time frame is from about the 10th of November until about the 4th of December. :LOL Personally, I hope he comes before the 23rd.<br><br>

My midwife told me 2nd babies are the most statistically likey to come on or very near their due dates. My 1st came at 42 weeks (with pitocin). She expects my 2nd to come closer to ontime. We shall see!<br><br>

#1- dd came on her due date<br>
#2- ds came one week early<br>
#3- ds2 came two weeks early<br>
This is #4, so we'll see if he/she comes three weeks early this time (if the pattern holds true). I hope not, though. I kind of want this baby after Christmas, not before.
