Oops, my dd was 5 weeks early and was convinced ds would be early too. felt as if I was about to go into labour with him from about 34 weeks (really heavy like you feel) but didn't have him till 40 + 1 day. two weeks early is OK though - a week after "term", I believe.
Can't help as I am 30 weeks pregnant with second baby but I have been wondering this as DS came 11 days early and I am wondering whether this one will too.
From reading some other threads I think that quite often the second baby can be late, which would feel even later (I feel that babies come at 38+3 as DS did, so if this one were 42 weeks then it would feel very late).
SAme question as you! - my dd3 came 2 weeks early in 1.5 hrs notice weighing just under 4 kilos & 54 cm long. I suppose I physically couldn't have got any bigger (was huge). My first was 40wks + 2 days & dd2 1 wk early as I had a cs for footling breech. Wondering what will happen in september. Every birth is different so preparing myself for 10 days overdue & long, long labour ......
dd was a week early and I was convinced that ds would be too. In fact when my due date minus one week passed I kind of felt that he wasn't coming then.
He was bang on time.
...but I've read that some women have longer or shorter natural gestation times. for many women one early baby does increase the liklihood of a second. My mum had 5 - all at least a week early, except one and the doc said that the last one (bang on time like ds) looked like he was overdue.
