my friend has just had her 2nd baby 15 days late - but her first was 3 weeks early!
All mine were late - got more overdue with each child!

Second 4 days late. It felt a very long time grin

ds 10 days early
dd 10 days late
at least I have some correlating figures both being 10 either way and they were both born on a Wednesday too.

3.5 weeks early with the first
Roughly due with 2nd
2 weeks over with third - and induced at that.

Oh dear. I am not liking the stats here grin

I came on to nose at the results OP as I am due in 2 weeks, DD was born 10 days early and I am hoping this wee fella will arrive any time now. But seems he might not hmm. I shall keep an eye might change!

I shouldn't have opened this thread either...
DD 4 weeks early
DC2 due in just under 3 weeks. Expected to go into labour early, now thinking it could be weeks.

First one 2 weeks early (waters broke because back to back undiagnosed) No2 1 day late, no3 on due date.

DS was 3 weeks early too.
DC2 not due until end of March, but was sorting ending work etc quite early expecting to be the same this time around (1 day of maternity leave last time!).
Maybe I should rethink ...

DS1 a week early
DS2 a week late

They swapped birthdays - DS2 was due on DS1's birthday but was born on DS1's due date (is that confusing?). We now have children 2 years apart but 3 school years (which will cause havoc with school, because we won't get the benefit of a sibling policy). Actually hoping that DC3 will be a bit late so that he/she is further away from Christmas.

DD 2 weeks early
DS 3 weeks early.

Does that make you feel better? grin
This time around I hope I get that lucky mw ticked all my appointments on my notes and has ticked 40 and 41 weeks saying well if I don't tick them then you'l still be here if I do then hopefully you'll have gone.
