Re: Longer with second pregnancy?

My first son was born spontaneously at 35 weeks.

My second son was born on his scheduled c/s date at 39w 1d.

Re: Longer with second pregnancy?

1st was born right at 35 weeks
2nd right on 37 weeks
3rd right on 38 weeks.
So we will see if this one makes it to 39 or maybe 40.

I hold no candle to this theory.

DD was 40w1d
DS was 36w6d
DS2 was 39w0d

I just count on 3 weeks before my DD to be action time.

Re: Longer with second pregnancy?

My second was later than my first... by one day. DD was born at 39w2d, DS was 39w3d (he was born exactly a week, 12 hours, and 15 minutes before DD's birthday. )

Re: Longer with second pregnancy?

my second came earlier than my first but my third came later than my second.

most of my friends though close to same and even a bit longer with subsequents, strange since I read the first is more likely to be "overdue" than other babies

eta: I've been thinking about it as well, the longest I've been pregnant is 38 weeks and that gives me a Christmas week baby for sure

I've been wondering the same thing. Thanks for making this poll, OP.
