  • My first I went into labor at 40 weeks and 3 days, my 2nd I went into labor at 40 weeks and 1 day - so it was sooner, but not by much. My 3rd was induced at 38 weeks, my 4th was a planned csection at 39 weeks and my 5th is also planned csection for 39 weeks. I wouldn't expect a whole lot of difference.
