So I have had two over due bubs and I am just wondering if that means that this bub will most likely be too, has anyone had two over due bubs and then a due date or early bub? I am just really hoping that this bub will not go over due.
What has been your experience??

i've been wondering the same OP,  my 2 were both 41+1 babies, and i'm wondering if this one will be the same (although i've also heard #3 is the unpredictable one)

I hope you are right^^^
Mumz3 I really like those odds.... Lol
My daughter was 10 days over and my son was 5 days (4days when labour started) so I am kinda hoping I will be on time at least

my first 41+1
second 42+3
third     39+6

I think all labours are very unpredictable and different!

My first two were over due and then with #3 I was induced 2 weeks early due to concerns about her size (thought she'd be about 11 lbs)

I am pregnant again and I can honestly say I'd prefer to be late then induced that early.  The labour was horrible.  My body wasn't ready.  

I firmly believe they come when they are ready and unless needed, don't mess with it.
