I am now a week later into my pg than I was with DS (he arrived at 39 weeks, my EDD for this pg is tomorrow). I'm just curious as to others who have had this experience? (I do know others IRL who this has happened to). I was hoping that my pg with DS would give me an idea as to the gestation length for me, but obviously not
PS I know my sig says differently, I'm not sure what due date it is using!

1st baby was born on due date. Went into hospital 48hrs earlier, but she came on her due date.
2nd baby was born on due date. Went into hospital 24hrs earlier but he came on his due date.
3rd baby was the day before his due date.
4th was on her due date by emergency CS.
5th was 1wk early by emergency CS.
6th was almost 2wks early by planned CS.

My DD1 was born on her due date and my DD2 was 5 days late.
Both my labours were exactly the same though (started the exact same way) - just fast forwarded for my second!

#1 was emerg c/s at 37w5d (broke my waters before scheduled date of 38w5d)
#2 was scheduled c/s at 37w5d (so no labour)
#3 was emerg c/s at 36w3d (once again put into labour by bubs).

1st Pregnancy - My DD was born 38+2 weeks
2nd Pregnancy - My DS was born 39+4 weeks

My first boy was born 2 weeks early and my second was born 3 days late... however they were both exactly the same birth wait (2.6kgs), I think DS2 was waiting until the scales said it was time!!
Just wanted to add that both times I went into labor/labour naturally

My first was born at 38+3, 2nd at 40+1, the longest 11 days of my life!!!
First time my waters broke, 2nd time we elected for a c/s for the giant baby.
I took comfort in the fact I never again have to be THAT pregnant again.
Dh was so excited when he found out I was due his birthday, took a few times explaining WHY the baby wouldn't be born then

#1 - born at 40 weeks, 6 days
#2 - born at 40 weeks, 3 days
#3 - born at 41 weeks, 2 days.
With each I went into labour naturally.

This is reassuring for me. DS was born on his EDD. This baby is due 7 July and id rather baby be in July than June - petty reason but I'd rather baby be older in the class an not youngest. Also my dads birthday is 12 July - so that would be super cool if they shared a birthday

DD1 34+6 after my waters broke
DD2 38+4 induction due to blood pressure
Not sure about number 3, my guess is they will induce like they did with DD2.

#1 was born 10 days over at 41+3 (induced)
#2 was born 10 days early at 38+3
#3 was born at 39+3, via scheduled c/s.
I fully expect to go at least a week or so over with this baby. I think #3 would have come after 40wks too had I not had a c/s.
