Did baby number 2 come sooner than baby number 1 ?

Okay i'm 36 weeks pregnant, and miserable my son is a year old and baby number 2 in on the way due april 18th. I only gained 25lbs with him and i've already gained 52 with her. He was 13 days early for his due date, I'm just wondering to the ladies out there that have 2 children was baby number one bigger ro baby number 2 and if baby number 1 was early was baby number 2 even earlier? or later?

  • My older daughter was a day late and my younger daughter was 5 days late and 10 ounces heavier, but since you were early with your first one maybe it will be the same with this one.

  • my #2 was a preemie, he was 5 lbs at 2 months early, so he could have been bigger than #1!
    i wish you the best of luck and a full term baby too!

  • Nope, baby 2 was 3 weeks late. Baby 1 was only a few days late!

  • Statistical speaking baby number one comes at 41 weeks and 1 day. Baby number two comes a little earlier. You didn't fall anywhere near statistics with your first. Nobody knows what you will do this time. Every pregnancy is different.

  • Nope, baby one came at 33 week and baby two came at 39.2 weeks. I was on bed rest with baby two from 5 weeks to 37 weeks since I had a previous preemie.

  • Our frist was 6 days early (induced), our second 8 days early (on my own), and our third one day late (on my own).

  • Both of mine were inductions and they came within 1-2 days of their due date. My second was bigger at 10lb 4oz, my first was 8lb 9oz.

  • Each baby and pregnancy is different. My 1st was born the day before his due date. My 2nd was a planned c-section he was born 3 wks before his due date-- and he was bigger and heavier than the 1st. My 3rd was born 1 wk before his due date- via planned c-section- and he was my smallest.

    Baby #2 came 5 days late.
