If you've had more than 3 children did they all arrive about the same time?

Curious really, this is number 5 for me
Dc3-40+11 - all three same father
Dc4-40+11- surrobub so different father
Dc5-? - new partner

Pretty prepared to go 11 days over again, but obviously hoping not as I'm finding it hard to cope, in lots of pain etc

Anyone had an earlier one despite others all going overdue? <clutching at straws>

Sadly not, mine have all got later and later. 39+4, 40+6, 40+13

DS1 40+6, DS2 40+6, DD 38+2!

My only early one was an emergency C section. The others were all late, to varying degrees. I think it partly depends on the length of your usual cycle.
Congratulations btw, and good luck! flowers

DC1 I was 2 weeks over,full blown pre eclampsia,so induced.
DC2 I was induced 2 weeks early because of kidney problems.
DC3 came a week early.
DC4 came a day early.
DC5 came nearly a month early.

DS1 - 40+5
DD - 40+9
DS2 - 38+6

DS2 was a shock, I was expecting to go over again and my waters went in my friends kitchen blush

No. 2 weeks late, on time, 1 week early, 4 weeks early, 3 days late.

Only 3 but yes all very similar

Dd1 - 40+12 (induced)
Dd2 - 40+10 (spontaneous)
Ds1 - 40+13 (spontaneous)

Very different weights though, boy was 3lb heavier than his sisters.

Different Daddy
DC's 4&5 (twins) 34+5

NatashaRomanoff Wed 01-Jun-16 22:17:50

Mine were all different-

DC1 - 40+4
DC2 - 43+5 (really)
DC3 - 39+5
DC4 - 39+3

Mine got earlier and earlier. 4th was bordering dangerously early so no more.

I have only had three but they were
Dd1 39+1
DS1 39+ 4
Dd2 39+5
Interestingly enough they all weighed 7lb 3. I have a theory that as soon as the baby gets to that weight my waters go pop!
Interestingly each birth got quicker
Dd1 6hrs
Ds1 1.5 hrs
Dd2 41 minutes
I would love another but I'm too old and too poor and risk having it in asda or something

DD 40+16
DS 40+1

PacificDogwod Wed 01-Jun-16 22:36:38

No, my 4 varied between 40+15 and 31+3 hmm

But they did all arrive in the same month, if that's of interest??
Two of them on the same day, 5 years apart grin

DS1 - 41+3
DS2 - 41+3
Pregnant with DC3 now and hoping to go over again to keep the birth as far from Xmas as possible!
DS1 was a 42hr labour
DS2 was a 6hr labour
Hoping there's no pattern there or this one could be born literally in minutes!

I thought you were asking about arriving at the same time as both of mine were born at roughly the same time with my 1st being born at 4am & my second 4.07am.
I can't really compare length of pregnancy as I had a sweep with my 1st & she was born 2 days later at 40+4 but didn't have any interventions with my second who was born at 41+6. Although I know my due date for my second was a few days out.

All three of mine were exactly 10 days overdue.
