  • I wouldn't think it was very likely. My first two were both 40 weeks, my 3rd was induced at 38 weeks, my 4th was a planned csection at 39 weeks, and I'm pregnant with my 5th - fully expecting to go full term.

  • i don't think there is any reason to believe that this one will come early...unless you have something going on. i had one preemie, that was from emotional stress.

  • i dont know, but with me i had all 3 boys at 38 weeks. This is also my 4th pregnancy so we will see if the pattern continues.

  • All of my pregnacies have been different. I had two that where huge (over 8 pounds by 37 weeks) and I had to be induced (extremely high blood pressure) and my middle baby was just this tiny thing that was in no rush to come out (she was only 7 pounds by 40 weeks). But I'm guessing that since your previous 3 were full term that your next one will be too.
