dd was born at 40+4
ds was born at 40+15 (induced)
I am massive with this one, and everyone, including me thinks I will not go to term. Is it likely that I will go early simply due to it being a massive baby in my (what was) tiny body.

Has anyone had two late ones followed by an early bird??

grin Wishful thinking Mosschops.

I had twins born at 29 weeks.
DD 39+6
DS 40+10
DS 40+14
DS 40+10
DD 40+3

I was HUGE with them all and always thought "Oh this one must be early" Ha!

ONly have 3 but

ds 38w - 7lb 1 - waters broke prem as not diagnosed as being back to back.
dd1 40+1 - 8lb 1
dd2 Due date! - 7 12 1/2.

There is a definite pattern of being approx on time (and all born middle of the night, Saturday or Sunday!)

Am thinking the same thing! All 3 of mine late! The last was 21 days over. Am now 40.+1 and prepared for a long wait. Interesting to see that all the babies on this thread didn't get bigger as mine have so far so was thinking this is going to be a 9 pounder.

i had two early ones followed by a late one grin

dd - 4 days early & 7lb4
ds1 - 2 weeks early & 8lb10
ds2 - 5 days late & 8lb2... you can imagine how much fun i was to be around in those 5 days blush

2 weeks late with number 4 which was a shock as numbers 2 and 3 were c-sections at 37 weeks. bliss wink

Disenchanted3 Sun 30-Aug-09 16:38:17

40+15 (induction)

40 exactly


goodluck x

l39 Sun 30-Aug-09 16:55:20

41 weeks
42 weeks
37 + 3 (twins, induced)

The twins weighed 10 and a half pounds between them, and I'm 4 feet 11 tall, and I still needed to be induced... so even though I feel huge with this baby, I don't expect anything to happen until 41 weeks.

DS1 5lb born at 38 weeks
DS2 8lb 9oz born 10 days late

JessieDog Sun 30-Aug-09 17:05:23

rolledhedgehog Sun 30-Aug-09 17:14:29

#1 10 days

#3 8 days (induced as waters broke on due date and nothing happened)
