Just wondering ....

First was 38+1.
Second was exactly two weeks later.

Chansey Sun 16-Oct-16 17:17:08

First was 2 weeks late - went into labour literally hours before induction planned. My second came exactly on her due date.

RatOnnaStick Sun 16-Oct-16 17:17:32

40+9 and 40+6 here. Not much different.

Hopelass Sun 16-Oct-16 17:18:24

My first was at 37+3. I am currently 34+1 with no2 and hoping that this one comes anytime from 37 weeks! :-)

TaggieRR Sun 16-Oct-16 17:38:02

Dc1 - 40+8
Dc2 - due date

DramaAlpaca Sun 16-Oct-16 17:39:20

DC1 39+2
DC2 40+5

Those five days over with DC2 felt like the longest of my life.

UnicornPee Sun 16-Oct-16 18:14:10

First 39+6
Second 41+5

OldBeanbagz Sun 16-Oct-16 18:19:46

DC1 was born at 40+5
DC2 born at 39 weeks

CeCeBloomer Sun 16-Oct-16 19:07:59

So general rule seems to be slightly earlier for DC2, DD came on my due date so am keeping fingers crossed around the same for DC2 as desperate for a couple of weeks mat leave first smile feel like he is going to be earlier though

Dilligufdarling Sun 16-Oct-16 19:09:51

Both 9 days late, both spontaneous.
First labour was 15 hours, second labour was barely 2!

Ilovewillow Sun 16-Oct-16 19:14:51

1st 6 days late
2nd 6 days early

Both due 21st August!

Mrsbadger77 Sun 16-Oct-16 19:15:24

cecebloomer take nothing for granted! Dd came at 38+3 and so I was expecting this dc to be earlier. Like I was convinced! 40+3 now and still no sign confused

fuzzywuzzy Sun 16-Oct-16 19:16:01

First went a week overdue second two weeks before due date.

Duckyneedsaclean Sun 16-Oct-16 19:16:55
