If dc1&2 were late does that mean dc3 is likely to be late too?

Just after others experiences. Ds1 was 7 days overdue ds2 had to be induced at 12 days overdue. I'm 35 weeks with ds3 and wondering if it's likely that he is also going to be overdue too?
Not sure I can cope another 6/7 wks I've had enough already.

Nope. My mum went 3 days over with my older brother, a week over with me, little bro was bob on and littlest bro was 2 weeks early! You never really know when they are going to decide to enter the big wide world. My ds was 3 days over and dd 1 day over (the day after my bros birthday) and im hoping this one will be fairly close aswell. gets so frustrating having to wait for so long!

No not really they just come when the come lol.

Induced 2wk over ds1
Ds2 went into labour on due date, awfully slow so was born 5 days later
Ds3 went into labour at 37+1 again really slow, was admitted to hos at 37+6 and had him the next day. All I did was sit saying but my babys dont come early they come late.

My first 2 were late. My 3rd was 34 weeks. No signs nothings and labour only 15 minutes. She shot out.

My 3 were all born between 41+5 and 41+7

I was told by my consultant that yes, if you have previously gone way overdue, it is more likely to happen again but of course, not definitely.
In my case he was right. First dd 13 days over. Second dd 14 days induced (although only 10 days by my own dates vs scan dates).
