Re: 37 WEEKS exact!!!

I agree that 37 weeks isn't really early. DS was born at 34 wks and DD at 33. Not a fun experience but they're both healthy now.

my 1st was 38+ weeks
my 2nd was in labor at 32 weeks had her at 35 weeks
3rd was exactly 37 weeks but 37 weeks is full turm so she's not considered early like my 35 weeker

Re: 37 WEEKS exact!!!

1st: 32 weeks (1 week NICU stay 'just in case' and for jaundice)
2nd: 36 weeks
3rd: 36 weeks
4th: 36 weeks
5th: 36?? we had no idea his due date, but he was COVERED in vernix, which the midwife said meant he was a little early.

6th.... not sure what to expect, but I expect him to be early too.

For gestational age, my babies were all pretty large. My last was 7#2oz, so I'd be afraid of going full term and having an 11 pound baby! So maybe it has to do with my longer cycles making due dates in-accurate? Maybe genetics? Who knows, though.

Re: 37 WEEKS exact!!!

My first was a 36 weeker and was a whopping 7lbs 5oz, but struggled with keeping his temp up and had bad jaundice and was not a good nurser. My 2nd was born at 38 weeks. You can bet I had everything ready at 36 weeks the 2nd time, though, and then I was twiddling my thumbs for 2 weeks!

Re: 37 WEEKS exact!!!

My first son was born at 37w0d and we were expecting #2 to go early. He didn't, though, and neither did baby #3. My second son was born at 39w0d and my third son was born at 40w0d. It doesn't always reflect a pattern, so I would try not to worry.

Re: 37 WEEKS exact!!!

DS1 was 35w 4d weighing in at 6lb 3oz. He had trouble latching/nursing and jaundice but we were able to avoid a NICU stay

DS2 I was ready at 36 weeks and he came right at 37 weeks weighing at a huge 8lb 5oz. No issues at all.

with this one I will be ready by 36 weeks and full expect this one to come between 36 and 37 weeks but who knows.
