Just find it interesting cos everyone says 1st babies are normally late, then after that they're normally on time etc. I seem to be a bit odd, my first was 37+2 then 2nd 38+4, third arrived at bang on 39weeks. What are the chances no4 will be even later?!

bigfam Tue 06-Jan-15 14:39:24

37+3 sorry

It's a myth that first borns are late, although they are less on time that subsequent babies. 36+1 here and it was tough getting that far

Im getting so nervous this one's going to stay put til 40wks or even longer! Ive kept myself going by telling myself "well my first came at 37wks" and so on. I literally don't think I can make 40wks, I feel huggge compared to previous pregnancies aswell. :-/

My waters broke at 37+5 and DD was born two days later at exactly 38 weeks.

42 weeks (first dc, and only one so far), and he had to be forcibly removed via c section! He was not keen on coming out :-)
