Long cycle, DC1 born 8 days 'overdue' - will DC2 be late too?

I used to have a 35 day cycle and all four of my DCs were late - 14 days, 10 days, 10 days, 7 days. Sorry. I don't know if it's the long cycle or if some women just have slightly longer pregnancies.

I think generally longer cycle = longer pregancy.

However, they dont take Cycle lenght in to account where I live, North Cheshire, I have a long cycle and although they did initially work out my date based on that, they have since brought it forward to a normal 28 day cycle EDD (moving it forward nearly a week). Which is an arse because previous have all been 2 weeks late and now they tell me this time its routine to induce at 41wks. B**ocks to that though.
