Those with 3 or more DCs...

Out of interest, at how many weeks were each of your DC born?

For me:

DS1 at 40+5
DS2 at 36 +5 (so caught me by surprise to say the least!) No apparent reason for him being so early.

Am pregnant with no 3 and can't help musing when it might come. Of course I know no-one can actually say, but I did wonder if others had also had first one overdue and second early, whether no 3 tended to follow the first or the second?

DC1 at 40+14
DC2 at 40+4
DC3 at 40+10
DC4 is booked for induction on my due date, this time due to "advanced maternal age" my consultant doesn't want me to go over term and thinks it's likely this one could follow the pattern and be late too!

Heard it so often that they come earlier but seems to be a myth and opposite can be true!

36+6 (spontaneous)
35+5 (induction then EMCS due to infection from hindwater leak)
38+2 (ELCS)

DC4 - hoping against all odds I hit my scheduled ELCS date of 39+1 as they won't go any earlier due to new guidelines, but not holding my breath.

Interesting to see often subsequent babies being later than the first! I think I just feel a bit flummoxed having no idea whether this one will be overdue or massively early! Perhaps he/she will split the difference and opt for 38wks ish grin
