    Default If you were late once, will you be late again?

    This is a completely unscientific question!



    DS was 6 days overdue and the OB says that probably means that this pregnancy will go past 40 weeks as well because that's just how long my body takes.

    Don't get me wrong, I like this approach! I really want a spontaneous labour, early or late. I just can't shake the feeling that this time I will be early. (I don't think this is wishful thinking LOL!)

    I just want to know if anyone out there went into spontaneous labour much earlier or much later in a subsequent pregnancy??

    DD1 came at 39w4d
    DD2 came at 40w5d

    So 8 days difference...im hoping this one isnt to late either...those extra days were bad...and i thought id go a bit early again!!

    DS1 was 8 days late and DS2 was 5 days late. I had a "feeling" I would go into labour early with DS2, but I was wrong LOL!

    I think it's different for everyone, there really is no science to it

    Previous pgs can be an indication, but anything can happen. My DS1 was 2 days late, and DS2 was 3 1/2 weeks early!

    First pregnancies are often longer than all the rest and are more likely to go post dates. But it's not an indication of what will happen in other ones - I recently had a mum who had her first baby at nearly 42 weeks and her second one came at 38 weeks Both were spontaneous labours. You just never know.

    #1 for me was 7 days late and #2 was 4 days early so it wasn't the case for me.

    I certainly hope that isn't the case!! Elliott was 12 days overdue and had to be induced then appeared at 10lb 14oz!! My midwife promised me that she wouldn't let me go that far overdue again. The only reason I waited is because I wanted to go into spontaneous labour.

    DS 1 was 3 weeks overdue (due 24/3 born 13/4) - (spontaneous labour)
    DS 2 was 2 weeks over (due 1/5 born 15/5) (induced) so no idea now long he would have taken
