Re: Second baby earlier or later? Just for fun...

I didn't vote. Oddly enough, I sort of need an "other." The reason is because my first was a singleton baby and my second was my second and third, twins. So, they were earlier, but twins almost always come earlier than singletons. It's not really comparable. My forth and fifth were also twins and they were later than my first set of twins, which I didn't expect.

This baby is a single. I tend to compare him with my first. I'm 2 days away from the day I delivered him and I went into labor tonight (39wks exactly and yes, I was in labor for 44hrs with my first). I'm thinking this baby is going to be longer than my first. I have to say, I'm not exactly happy about it. *sigh*
