Do later children come earlier?

Just curious about what other people have experienced - I know every pregnancy and delivery is different, but for moms of more than one, have the later babies come earlier?

For example, my DS was born 4 days before his due date... think this guy will be early-ish?

(I know thinking about it doesn't really change when he comes, but GOSH, I just feel like he'll be early! )

#1 was 40w5d
#2 was 40w0d
So, yes, a little, for me, but my OB thinks #3 will be around 38 and I hope he's right. LOL

#1 was 42 weeks
#2 was 42 weeks
#3 was 43 weeks
I am so hoping this one isn't so late, but it runs in the family!

Re: Do later children come earlier?

I'm lurking, but I was due in October last year, and as DS's first birthday is in a few days, I'm just reminiscing on those last days of pregnancy...

#1 37w4d
#2 38w1d
#3 37w5d

Good luck mamas!!!
