Do your births follow a timing pattern?

Just wondering ... if you were late / early the first time, does it mean you're likely to be similarly late / early the next and next time...? What are people's experiences? I was 6 days over after a sweep last time, so wondering if I'll be waiting again this time (currently 39.3). Thanks

11 days early with DS and then 4 days late with DD.

A week early with dd1 and 4 days early with dd2. If dc3 is late I'll bender be able to copesmile
I also went into labour at precisely 12.30 am with both so will only expect to labour at night.

3 weeks early ds1, 5 weeks early ds2, 8 weeks early ds3, 5 weeks early dd1, 6 weeks early dd2.

2 weeks late with DC1 and 3 weeks early with DC2. Though I was induced with them both.

40+1 with both

Mine were both around 2 weeks early, but a friend of mine was 2 weeks early with DC1 and a week late with DC2, so it's not always consistent.

One week early, three weeks early (but induced so doesn't count), then right on the day.

All three born on prime number dates though...

I was. 4 days early with dd1 (and as she was 9lb12 I was glad!)

I was 10 days early with ds. As at that point he was 9lb3 I was equally glad!

Due to health problems I was induced at 36+6 with dd2.

No. On time with first, early with second, 10 days late with third.

Dd came at 38 weeks, currently 39+2 and feel like I'm overdue already as had been convinced this one would be earlier!

rach6122 Fri 28-Feb-14 12:51:21

41+1 with both

Went into labour at 40+4 with DC1 (born 40+6 hmm)

Currently 40+3 with DC2 and still waiting...

Three children, each one arrived on the Wednesday before his/her due date, & each arrived around dinner time!
So yes, a definite pattern.

40+10 with first then 40+7 with second - MW said it was likely I'd go over the second time so was expecting at least a week.

Ericadm Sat 01-Mar-14 23:10:08

I was exactly the same date with both (38+1)!

40+3 with DD. Already 40+4 with this one and no sign.

Dillydollydaydream Sun 02-Mar-14 09:09:11

Nope.
Dd1 39+4
Ds1 41
Ds2 40+2
Dd2 39+1

Girls all before due date, boys after.

DD1 35+6

DD2 39+2

I was wondering this very thing myself.

OnTheRunAndUpTheDuff Mon 03-Mar-14 11:02:29

37+6 and 38+2, so pretty consistent. Don't think we'll be testing the theory with a third though!
