I've only got one at the moment. She was 5 days overdue.

BunnyLebowski Tue 22-Sep-09 08:16:59

Only had one lo. DD was born at 40+4 and I had her at home with (obv) no intervention.

Had a sweep a few days before - don't think that counts?

DS was 8 days early (labour started at 38+4 with) , i'm 38+1 today sort of thinking god anytime now. But know that i could be pregnant for another 3-4 weeks yet in all reality!

Riven- did you expect to go early/earlier as it was your 4th?

Bunny- I don't think that counts, i was thinking more along the lines of a booked induction or CS.

Went into labour on the due date with #1. Number 2 was 2 weeks early. Number 3 was about 5 days early.

LittleMissBliss Tue 22-Sep-09 08:23:41

Tambajam oooh that's promising!smile

LittleMissBliss Tue 22-Sep-09 08:25:33

Carmen did you do anything differently with 2nd and 3rd to bring on/encourage labour?

chocolatedays Tue 22-Sep-09 08:26:33

My one and only was one day early - as she was IVF I know the due day was spot on.

DS - born at 38 weeks or so (had a show, and into labour 2 days later)
DC2 - am 38 weeks now and not a twinge <<grr>>

LittleMissBliss Tue 22-Sep-09 08:32:31

Me too ruby Nada! I was having more twinges, period type cramping about four weeks ago!

Drank 4 cups of RLT yesterdaygrin, really starting to go off the taste, trying to pretend to myself that really i like it.

CarmenSanDiego Tue 22-Sep-09 08:32:41

Not really, LMB. Spontaneous labour each time. And they all started off early in the morning, oddly.

weegiemum Tue 22-Sep-09 08:34:49

No1 I went into labour 5 days early, she was born 4 days early (loooooong labour!)

No2 I went into labour 10 days early.

No3 was a 37 week induction.

LuluMamaaaaarrrrr Tue 22-Sep-09 08:36:14

first labour induced at 39 +1

second labour,had a hindwater leak, went in to be checked,nothing doing, went home,woke up in labour in the morning, delivered 01.15 the next 40 weeks. so bang on time

DS 5days early, bit of a shock as I was convinvced he would be late so wasn't actually counting down to due date!
DD 4days early

LittleMissBliss Tue 22-Sep-09 08:49:30

carmen I was sort of hoping you'd say i swear by XYZ, I XYZ and went into Labour the next day! Interesting about all your labours starting off in the morning.

I read last night that only in 17-25% of mothers their waters going will be the first sign of labour and normally your waters will go in the night or when you stand up first thing.

sheeplikessleep Tue 22-Sep-09 08:54:01

I was 36+5 when my waters broke (in the evening, I was sat down, 5 minutes into some huge Rugby game, DH had just poured himself a bottle of Fursty Ferret grin).

Really hoping DC2 comes closer to due date <hopeful>

carikube8 Tue 22-Sep-09 08:59:46

I was 39+3 and my waters broke at about 5am (I'd just got up as I thought I needed to pee) and DD was born at half past midnight the following morning.

The only symptom of labour that I didn't have was the nesting bit which DH still complains about - he thought that the whole house would be sparkling when I eventually went in to labour grin

BunnyLebowski Tue 22-Sep-09 09:02:46

My waters didn't go until I was about 9 hours into contracting.

I was beginning to think @Oh this isn't so bad I can totally cope with this' when they went and everything intensified. More fool me!

I was eating pineapple and curry, making DP boink me against his wishes, scrubbing the floor on all foors and walking miles (not all at the same time mind) and I couldn't attribute labour to any of these things. It'll happen when it happens.
