So With every pregnancy did you go into labor earlier. My first 3 were induced do to size. Then my 4th I went into labor on my own at 38 weeks on the dot. So this time do you think I will make it to my 39 week C-section. The doctor said they can't schedule me till 39 weeks for my C-section. I haven't made it to 39 weeks with any of my kids.

So how far did you make it with every pregnancy?

ive only ever went into labor on my own once, so I was induced with the rest between 39-37 weeks
you say your dr cant schedule the c section, but what if you went into labor on your own? would they do the section right away?

All of mine were 42 weeks. I go on my own and have 10 pounders. My last one was 42 weeks 4 days. If I go again, I want to make 43 weeks because I will be 43 yo. I like numbers like that.

#1 was induced at 41 wks.
#2 was due 9/9/01 & my water broke at home 9/7/01 & didn't have any contractions -- my labor stalled despite getting pitocin to induce contractions & I was delivered via c-section 9/8/01
#3 was a vbac but still had to be induced at 41 1/2 weeks
#4 was an emergecy c-section due to IUGR at 37 weeks -- he stopped developing at 34 weeks
#5 I went into labor on my own at 37 weeks exactly, but was a repeat c-section
#6 I was delivered via emergency c-section at 34 weeks 4 days due to severe preeclampsia
#7 was a repeat c-section at 39 weeks 2 days

The first was induced at 42 weeks, probably would have held out longer if he had his way, but they were seeing signs of stress.

Every other one was delivered at 38 weeks, a few were induced and some I was just stripped for. I refuse to go longer then 38 weeks and keep my sanity.

I made it different times for each one - some late, some early - I ranged from 37 weeks (#4) to 42.5 weeks (#2) and everything in between. My boys tended toward early while my girls tended toward late. The number pregnancy had no bearing on when I went into labor and they all started naturally even though the 42.5 week one was about to be induced the day I went in but I was already in labor when I got there

35 weeks with my first (possibly even earlier than that, his muscle tone was only at 30 weeks, they're probably better at estimating development now) the rest were 39-40 weeks. I was induced for all the rest of them, the last one being the best, because all they did was break my water.

I only have 3 (TTC #4) but no, that wasn't true for me. #1 was 10 days late (42 weeks), #2 was induced at 41 weeks. #3 was scheduled c-section so at 39 weeks (but showed no sign of going into labour)

#1 38 weeks
#2 induced at 39 weeks
#3 water broke at 39 weeks
#4 39 weeks
#5 induced by having my water broken at the hospital at 40 weeks

First baby came on her own earliest and the most recent baby had the longest gestation and ended up being induced. Go figure!

My first was 8 days before due date but my water broke 9 days before.
Second and third were born the day before their due dates.
Fourth was born 5 days before due date.

All came on their own.

I have thankfully not had any premies. I have never gone over 38 weeks. I have had 1 emergency section ( cord prolapse ) and 2 scheduled sections. Im having my 4th c section in July. my vag deliveries all about average of 2 weeks before DD.

In my experience having more didnt bring on labor any earlier.
