Two early babies. Is DC3 likely to be too?

Obviously no one can tell me definitively blush

But both DC1 and 2 were 8 days early. Currently 22 weeks with DC3, new partner if it makes any difference!

Am I likely to go over this time around? I’ve heard third babies are notoriously unpredictable!

Im not being rude or nasty or anything but 8 days early really is absolutely nothing. I had my DS1 17 WEEKS early...

8 days before your EDD is on time hmm and not at all classed as early.

Well, you're more likely to have another premature baby if you've already had one premature baby, but babies have to be born before 37 weeks to count as premature.

8 days before the due date is full term and not really early.

I wouldn't worry. Did your first two have any problems? Speak to your midwife if you are concerned.

Wow ok hmm sorry then, i didn’t say premature! I had my two first children at 38+6 weeks. Is that better?

I’m not overly concerned, just wondering if many others have noticed a pattern of any kind.

All of mine were overdue, with the 3rd being the "most overdue" at bang on 42 weeks.
