Yes late with both. I always thought the hospital dates were wrong. Both were re dated at scan due to length of leg bones - my dh is v tall.

Transfiguration Tue 24-Jun-14 17:11:21

dc1- 1week late
dc2- 3 days late

MilksteakCharlie Tue 24-Jun-14 17:02:48

Nononon - have you joined the due December ante natal thread?

ds2 +10d
ds3 -6wks
Generally I was told they get longer/later each time.

OhTheDrama Tue 24-Jun-14 16:39:17

DD1 - 10 days late (induced)
DD2 - 5 days late, homebirth

Expecting DC3 at present.

Rosa Tue 24-Jun-14 16:39:08

40+6 then 38+4 and dd2 was bigger than dd1

umiaisha Tue 24-Jun-14 16:38:36

Both of mine were 5 days late.

Plus both born on a tuesday night and had the same birth weight.

BeckaH123 Tue 24-Jun-14 16:34:27

I am only expecting DC1, but my Mum had (apparently):

DC1 - two weeks late
Me - 4 weeks early
DC3 - bang on time

stripeyred Tue 24-Jun-14 16:27:24

All of mine were 14 days later and I started on my own every time on the day before I was to be induced

PenguinsHatchedAnEgg Tue 24-Jun-14 16:14:55

Not induced, but +8 by my dates all three times.smile

gunwalloe Tue 24-Jun-14 16:06:46

All my 4 were late ranging from 6-10 days.

CarCiKoTab Tue 24-Jun-14 15:48:35

Dc 1 was term thanks to Caster Oil
Dc 2 was a week over due and was induced via waters been broken
Dc 3 was a week over due but managed to come naturally thanks to 2 sweeps

I'm expecting to go over due with this one and have my waters broken as they have never gone on their own, slightly disappointed about that.

fairgroundsnack Tue 24-Jun-14 15:46:12

DC1 40+10
DC2 40+9

Not induced either time

BaldHedgehog Tue 24-Jun-14 15:45:21

DC1 41+6 induced
DC2 due today, will wait and see grin

steppemum Tue 24-Jun-14 14:58:29

dc1 - 42+2
dc2 - 39 - because induced for medical reasons
dc3 - 41 + 3 weeks

with dc3, I got induced as soon as they would let me as I knew she would be late.

betold Tue 24-Jun-14 14:57:11

DC1 42 weeks, induced. DC2 5 mins late (5 past midnight so just missed his due date).

I was totally unprepared as I was expecting to be induced again!

EmilyElephantTrumpets Tue 24-Jun-14 14:54:51

Not for me but I went into spontaneous labour with dc1 so I don't know if this is where the difference lies.

Dc1 10 days late

Dc2 10 days early.

fattycow Tue 24-Jun-14 14:54:24

Me - 14 days late
Sibling 1 - 8 days late
Sibling 2 - 6 days early

Poledra Tue 24-Jun-14 14:53:08

DD1 - 8 days late.
DD2 - 4 hours late
DD3 - 1.5 hours late

Tournesol Tue 24-Jun-14 14:52:53

DS1 was 9 days late, DS2 2 days late and DD 11 days late.

Also a good friend had to be induced for all three of her children!

Good luck!

I'm only on dc 1 but my mum had 3 of us, dd1 7 days late, me almost 3 weeks late and dd3 10 days late. Unfortunately baby will come out when it's cooked. I'm having a little conflict as if I go a week late, DD will be born on Halloween!!!!

Nononon Tue 24-Jun-14 10:54:59

Doesn't work Ginger I'm sorry. Tried it last time, tried everything in fact sad

GingerRodgers Tue 24-Jun-14 10:52:41

Ooh I'm interested in this too op. Dd was term+8 and to be honest I can see me going over again with this one but we'll see.
Lots of sex planned for around the due date grin

Nononon Tue 24-Jun-14 10:30:29

My first was induced at 41+6 and I'm kind of expecting the same to happen this time. However, I'm due in December and going overdue means a closer to Christmas birthday which I would be keen to avoid but obviously have zero control over.

Also if you had to be induced the first time, did you also the second?
