DS1 was 3 weeks early, DS2 1 day late - so to answer your question I guess no!!

Both mine early. Waters broke 12 days early for both, ds c-section that afternoon (so 12 days) dd c-section 3 days later (so 9 days).

My mum said my sisters & me were 10 days early, and my brother was 10 days early.

Aww, Dabihp, I sense the desperation in your threads, bless you! My DS was born at 37 and 6 to an incredibly relieved me. I couldn't believe my luck, or that I hadn't sorted my nursing bras yet!

ja9 Thu 26-May-05 21:35:23

DS 12 days early

lol, Flossam, is it that obvious...

as u may have read then, I was booked in for a section as dd1 didnt drop, so had elective with her, however at last antenatal, baby had engaged, so i cancnelled my section (whihc was yesterday!)

Am due otmorrow, but hav ehospital in the mornign and they have rebooked me for wednesday, so I have to go into labour myself before then, otherwise its another section -which i am very very keen to avoid..

Didnt labour at ALL with dd one (was one day overdue) so do not know what to expect this time....

but heres hoping XX
