So dd1 came unexpectedly at 37wks exactly, now pregnant with dd2 and wondered if its likely this one would be aswell?! I know anything can happen and it's not an exact science but just interested to know others experiences, no one I know in RL to ask as friends on firsts or had cs or induction, my mum did have the three of us at 37wks though! Partly just out of interest but also want to book ml and not sure whether to go abit earlier as I'd like quality time with dd1 for atleast a week or so before the new arrival
I am not sure but with DS1 he was born at 40wks exactly and when I was expecting DS2 the midwives kept saying that they would be surprised if I got to 40wks, DS2 was born at 38+5wks. I am now 19wks today with DC3 and I am wondering will I have him earlier than that.
First child born at 37+6 days, second at 35+6 days do both early. Both labours were very similar too. I hadn't started my mat leave with DC2 when I had him, was meant to work one more week and was really looking forward to relaxing and enjoying time with DC1 just the two of us before he appeared!
I had dd1 at 39+3, then ds at 38+4, both spontaneous labours, dd1 was 9lb12 and ds 9lb3 and midwives agreed the were "ready". Dd2 was induced at 36+6 as I had scary health problems, she was 7lb13 even slightly more than 3 weeks early!
No idea if this helps you. I've never gone past a due date, and mine got earlier. I really think dd2 would have been early too.
