If you had a baby early

Were they head down for awhile beforehand? My baby has been head down for a month now, and I have a feeling she will come early. I know that can be meaningless, but.....

Anyway, just trying to figure out if there is any correlation.

Re: If you had a baby early

dd was kinda sideways, in the almost head down position right up to 37 weeks----came 6 days early.

ds1 got into position pretty early---came 11 days early.

ds2 was in position from about 7.5 months on----came 3 days LATE!!!

Re: If you had a baby early

Dd was head down for a long time and was..something like 5 days early.
This one has been head down for awhile, no idea when it will come but probably not all that early.

DS1 was head down since before 22 weeks,... he had to be forced out 1 week overdue.

All mine were head down for months, I was 3 cm dialated for weeks, and 2 of them were late, and one was evicted early due to too little fluid.

Re: If you had a baby early

DS was head down around 5 months like this one and came at 38 weeks. He dropped a few weeks before coming though.

This one dropped early and I'm hoping she comes around 37 weeks. I'm sick of pregnancy.

Re: If you had a baby early

DD was head down from at least 18 weeks and came on her EDD. DS was always breech and I went into labor with him 2 weeks early. So for me it hasn't made a difference in their position.

Re: If you had a baby early

Mine never stay head down or engage until labor...and I dilate early, but I can be 2-3 cm for weeks before labor...as is the case right now! At the moment I don't know WHAT is going on in my uterus but it feels like gymnastics, with lots of kicking and punching directed at my poor cervix and my ribs! LOL ;-)
