  • It just depends on the woman and the baby I think. With my son(my only child) I went in to labor at 37 weeks and 1 day. But my niece who just had her first boy went a week and half over due. So I guess it just depends.

  • I had a boy on my only pregnancy. He came at 40 weeks and 2 days. ALL pregnancies and babies are different, there is no trend. Mine came on time so, your theory is wrong. Just sayin'.

  • It all depends on the woman. Has nothing to do with the sex of the baby. And every pregnancy may be different. It is all when the woman's body is ready.

  • My first born (a boy) was born right on his due date and my 2nd born (a girl) was born about 4 days early.

  • It depends on the pregnancy, the previous complications, and the women.
    My son came a day early, my daughter came four days early. My daughter's labor was short because my son got stuck.

  • My first was a boy and he was only a few days early. I dont think the sex has anything to do with it.
