Just wondering really.... I'm sure this one will be early too but interested to hear if others followed a pattern?

My first was exactly 1 week early and my second was exactly 3 weeks early. Both boys and 18 months between them smile

Not me (I was late and then on time) but my friend went 37 weeks, 38 weeks.... And then 42 weeks! I've never seen anyone so cross as she was with no 3!!

DS1 2 weeks early

DD 3 days early (but felt late to me!)

DC1 4 days early, natural/spontaneous labour. DC2 2 weeks late and induced.

I asked for similar experiences on MN when I was expecting DC2 and was convinced I'd be early again. Was clearly wrong grin

Both children (boy and girl) born 3 weeks early.

Aw, my dd was 2 days early and I'm hoping this one will be early too, now Christmas is over I feel ready for her and the 8 weeks ahead feel like 8 months.
I'm almost 40 though and have read that older women are more likely to have early babies so there's still a straw to clutch.

DD- 5 weeks early
DS- 4 days late

I was cross (and slightly unreasonable) by the time DS showed up!

MaximumVolume Fri 02-Jan-15 20:53:28

Ooh, I've been wondering this, too! DS1 was born at 39+2 after three days of latent labour. Currently 35+4 with number 2 & hoping for a 38-39 weeker (esp. as growth scan at 34 weeks showed baby was already 5 1/2 pounds!).

First ds 3 wks early
Second dd 1 wk late

Very annoying with the second as made a point of finishing work at 37 wks !

GrumbelinaPicklebottom Sat 03-Jan-15 22:37:12

Ds 2 2 days late

SauvignonBlank Sat 03-Jan-15 22:49:38

All 3 bang on a week early. I predicted the date of #3 exactly, much to the amazement of all my friends, even cooked a casserole the day before as I knew we'd enjoy it the following day coming back from hospital.
