So DD came at 37w exactly, and my doctor seems to think this little guy will come early as well. He says it's probably partly due to high stress, I work long hours, etc. I can't find any research anywhere that puts any credence to that theory, so who knows. But what I'm wondering is this - for those with 2 kids or more - was there any pattern to when your kids came? DD was about 7 lbs at 37 weeks, so she was totally healthy, and I won't be upset if this baby wants to come a few weeks early too! Have you guys found that the second, third, etc came earlier than #1 or later or no pattern? Thanks!
My first was only 6lb 14oz at 41 weeks. I always wonder if my due date might have been a bit off since she was so small.
My twins were a c-section at 37.5 weeks but I was having irregular contractions when I went in. No knowing when they would have come on their own, but probably not too long after. They were 6lb 6 and 5lb 3.
I was hoping to see that most people went at the same time or earlier with their #2, #3, etc but doesn't sound like there's a pattern at all! Haha, I can always hope I'm scheduled for a c section at 39w anyway, but another 37 weeker who's healthy would be just fine too
Our only pattern so far is that my kids are stubborn and want to cook lol, they have all been in the 7lb range, and my labors keep getting shorter. My last labor was 3.5 hrs induced so that makes me a lil nervous.
