I'm 25 weeks pregnant with first baby and keep getting really strong feelings that the baby will arrive early. Did you have strong feelings your baby would be early, late or on time and were your feelings correct?

No - I just naively assumed they would arrive pretty much on the day grin

dcs 1 + 3 were both a week late. dc2 just 2 days late.

I had no idea. She came six weeks early. My waters went on my birthday - thank god we didn't go out to celebrate!

Second time I had an inkling, she was three weeks early.

My first was born at 28 weeks. I had no inkling that she would be early until 3 hours before she was born.

Thought he would come early (completely paranoid about previous losses). Arrived at 30 weeks.

DD1 no feelings - 2 weeks late
DS1 - convinced would be early - arrived at 37+3!

First two, no particular feelings. Both late. Third dc, was convinced would arrive early. I was right. Even got the exact day right grin

My first I was convinced I'd be late (had 0 niggles or anything suggestive) and I had her at 37+3.
Was ADAMANT my second would be early and he came on his due date.

First did thought she was would be early as all the babies in my family have been. Started contracting regularly at 26 weeks and was given steroids as a precaution. Contracted on and off till 40+6!

Watching with interest as I'm currently 37 weeks w/ my first and for weeks and weeks I've been completely convinced he's going to be early!

All the way through my pregnancy iv thought I'm going to be early, I'm now 38+3 and nothing as yet and I thought I would of gone by now.

I had no idea at all with DC1 & DC2. In the end, DC1 was 5 days early & DC2 was 5 days late.

With DC3 I just knew I'd go a bit early. I saw my midwife on the Tuesday about nine days before I was due & as I was leaving she said 'see you next week'. She looked a bit surprised when I said I had a feeling I'd go before then.

I was right, he arrived early on Saturday morning, five days before his due date.

With both of mine I subconsciously knew the exact dates they would arrive all the way through. They were both exactly 263 days gestation according to my dates (which were right) - the NHS due date given at DC2 scan was definitely wrong - I would have still been on my period at conception!!!
