So I am 36+3 with DC4 and clutching at straws. I wondered what everyone experience's were and if you followed any pattern?

I have been 40+5 with all the other 3, so has this been fluke or is this on going to be the same?

everyone is different..... baby 1, i was 42+1, baby 2, i was 39 +5, 3&4 i was induced.

My best friend was 29+4, then 38, then 40+3

My mum was 40, then 38+2, then 41+6

Wow, cant believe you were so bang on with all 3, i have to say i have not heard of it being so exact before! lol.x

I hope there is no pattern, I was 40+9 with dd and I want to be earlier with this one, I'm only 31 weeks right now so I'm watching with interest

I am really trying to tell myself that my real due is the 6th August and not to expect anything else grin. Its nice to see that some people follow no pattern. grin Their is hope.

My mum had all 4 of us at 38 weeks, waters broke then contractions all over 8lbs and my first was 38 weeks on the dot, waters broke first 8 lbs 2oz, second is due in August.

Just need sister to get pregnant now to confirm the trend.

My only pattern seems to be to go well over the due date!
(all spontaneous, never induced)
DD 40+4
DS 41+1
DC3 40+?
Now pregnant of baby nr 3 and 40 weeks today. Wished there wasn't this pattern though, want to give birth sooner rather than later!

wobblyweeble82 Wed 06-Jul-11 09:17:04

DS - 39+5
DD - 39+5

Both had due date of 20th May, both born on 18th May!

I always think of them in terms of days early but I should have put
39+1 (or 39 exactly I got given different dates on different occasions)
39+4

babyonbord Wed 06-Jul-11 09:29:20

spookshowangel Wed 06-Jul-11 09:35:09

no.4 currently at 16 weeks but think 39-40 weeks would be good for me : ) It is due 23rd Dec and I don't want to miss Christmas Day with the other 3......

Sewmuchtodo Wed 06-Jul-11 13:01:04

DC1 36+6 induction
DC2 36+6 natural labour

I have to say at 29+5 with DC3 I would be happy with the 37wk mark!!!
