Did you have your baby early with your first pregnancy and then the rest too?

I went early with my first and was wondering what the odds of me having my second child early too? I am currently 36W3D and I had my first child at 36W4D. I don't know if I am progressing any; I go to the dr. in a couple of days so will know more then. Just wondering how many other mothers have experienced this!!!!

  • My first came 2 weeks early, my 2nd came 3 weeks late. Usually it's likely that your 2nd baby will come early too, but in my case, she was late!

  • My son was very early, had him at 26 weeks, and my daughter was only 2 weeks early.

  • No. My son was a month (or 6 weeks according to the doctors) early. My second was on his due date.

  • First was 10 days early and second was 5 days early. usually they say your second will be earlier then your first, unless the first was s premie for some reason.

  • With my first my water broke 4 1/2 weeks early, held her for a week for her lungs and she was born 3 1/2 weeks early. My second was 6 weeks early due to my water breaking and spent time in the NICU (3 weeks). My third is going to be taken early due to CPP(complete placenta previa) and since my first two were PROM babies. My doc is talking somewhere between 6 and 4 weeks early, which is in 8 to 10 weeks from now.

  • When i had my first he was already 8 lbs.11 1/2 oz. so I really am hoping this one is average size OR that he comes early too. We will see!
    Thank you everyone for your commnets! It seems that this one should come early, but some of you actually went longer with your second and third, guess no one really knows!
