Anyone???

Have any of you ladies went full term after your first child/children were early? This probably sounds crazy, but both of my girls were 2 weeks early and I am just wondering if I have a chance of going the full 40 weeks with this baby? I really would like to, but I am thinking my chances are probably slim!?

Re: Anyone???

I have had 5 children and I usually go post date. This time (#5 came early) only by three days, but for me that was huge since the others went about 11-12 days over the due date. So, it was like coming 2.5 weeks early for me.

In my experience, each pregnancy is a bit different. Good luck mama.

Thanks! I mean, it really is not a big deal, but I was hoping for a Sept. bday and NOT August! I know that sounds crazy, but we have like 6 family members with August bdays from the 22nd to the 31st. I know, that sounds NUTS, because it really won't matter in the end!

Re: Anyone???

Me! DD came at 39 wks exactly. My labor started at 38w5d with my water leaking very slowly. I labored all day 38w6d and she was born at 4am at EXACTLY 39wks.

DS, OTOH, was either 40w1d or 40w3d, depending on which EDD you used - which was irritating. I had prodromal labor from about 37.5 wks until 38w5d, and then the same thing that happened with DD happened with dS - a slow fluid leak. I fully expected to have him at 39wks exactly like DD, but labor wound up stalling out at exactly 39 wks and 4cm. He wasn't born for another wk. It was so frustrating. I was miserable.

I never thought I'd want to go late....but this time I do for that very same reason! I would be totally stoked if this baby was exactly 10 days late to avoid a March birthday.

I went 36 weeks with my first and 33 weeks with my second. I've been having progesterone shots every week, and I just had my last one on Sunday. I'm 36 weeks 3 days so far, so we will see if I make it full term (4 days!)
