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!

lets see 10 lbs 42 weeks, 11.5 lbs 41 weeks. 7.8 lbs 38 weeks and 10 lbs at 37 weeks. My babies get earlier and earlier. My goal is to have a small baby and make it to 36 weeks haha.

No patterns. My first was 5 days early and my second came on her due date. Both of them were just under 8 pounds.

I'm curious about this too!

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.

My first was 9.1 and 2nd was 8.2 The funny thing is they were both due on the 7th but were both born on the 10th!

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.
