Hi, DS was born 42 +2 days and even induction took full drip to get me contracting, and he was still born by emcs.
Anyway, I have been offered sweeps from 38 weeks every 3 days which I'll go for as I would really like a VBAC and labour to start without meds.
Anyone gone so far over first time then early or on time the second time?

I went 3 weeks over with ds1 and 3 weeks early with ds2... I think really you just can't predict anything!

DD1 term exactly (only 7 per cent manage that)
DS 3 weeks early !!!!
DD2 2.5 weeks late
DD3 1 week early

I think they come when they darn well please and there doesn't seem to be rhyme nor reason to it!!!!!!!!

Hello my first birth was identical to yours except my DD was born 42 + 1day, my second DD was born VBAC and came on her due date and was only in labour for 5 hours. It was fantastic and so glad that they didnt make me have a c section again.

I really think you cant predict it but for peace of mind I would also accept the sweeps as it does no harm.

Hope all goes well for you smile

Oh thank you for replies.
I've sort of convinced myself that as DS was late this one will stay determindly put too. That gives me hope! smile

dd1 - 42+1
ds1 - 40+1
dd2 - 41+3
