Overdue on third?

If you were overdue on your first two, what happened on your third or subsequent babies?
I was 12 days overdue on my first but went into (v slow) labour naturally. 14 days overdue on second and had to have waters broken.
Not sure what to expect this time!!

I was 4 days over day with 1st, 14 days with 2nd. I really hope it's not the same with 3rd 😏.

Sorry, no help but curious too!

1st was +8 days, 2nd was +3 days and currently 36 weeks with #3...

I've been thinking about this too. I was two weeks overdue with my first, waters broke night before I was due to go in to be induced.

Two weeks early with DC2.

Currently 39+3 with number three and booked in for a sweep on Friday.

I am so ready to have this baby already.

DC1 - 3 days overdue
DC2 - 13 days overdue
DC3 - 11 days overdue
DC4 - due December. 99% sure I'm going to go overdue

Mine were born at +15, +10, +4.

Forgot to add was in slow labour all 3 days with DC1, DC2 wasn't budging and took 2 days induction, DC3 came in 3 hours early hours the day before induction was due.

1st was 4 days over, 2nd was 11 days and 3rd was 12 days!

Ds 3 days late induced, dd1 11 days late, dd2 8 days late. Contractions started with dd2 just after sex with dh and continued all day and night and gave birth at around 2pm the next day. She was back to back so took a while to get going properly.

Definitely seems to be a pattern that some people are more prone to going overdue! 40+3 today!

I'm another who was late with all three.
With the first my waters went 11 days after my due date, with the second Labour started naturally 14 days after the date and and my third was born 11 days later than expected.

41+2 today. Really hoped to have baby out by now! What makes some women more likely to go overdue??

Four babies so far and I've been overdue with all: 40+10, 40+10, 40+10 and 40+18

All were normal straightforward pregnancies. The only thing which has seemed to change is the speed of birth (24h, 8h, 7h, 3.5h).

All the women in my mum's family go 'over' the edd. For me it's totally normal.
