  • As far as I know, there is no proven correlation between how long a mother carries her baby and how long her daughter will carry her baby. My friend was born 3 week early but had her son right on time.

  • no one does not increase the risk to the other

    I would recommend taking a Bradl;ey Method class... his teachings were instrumental in my secomd child not being born early like my first

  • Possibly... but probably not.

    Do you know anything about your mother's health? Any poor habits or complications?

  • Your birth has nothing to do with your baby. I was 2 weeks to the day late. I went into labor with my daughter 12 days early. I went into labor with my son September 11 and was due October 4. My mom labored 4 hours 30 minutes with me. I had inconsistant contractions for 6 days before they broke my water and gave me pitocin, I labored for 11 hours with my first. They stopped my labor with my son and induced me again at 38 weeks and I labored 7 hours with him
