Answer if you have babies/ children close together in age please =)

Did your second come earlier?

My doctor said that since I got pregnant with number 2 so soon after DD that I am likely to have him a little early. My daughter was 6 months when we got pregnant again. I am just wondering if this held true for anyone. I am 36.5 weeks now and my doctor said to start preparing for it to be any day now, but obviously he can not make any guarantees, he is just going off of statistics.

BTW my DD was induced at 41 weeks, if that makes a difference =)

  • My sons are 13.5 months apart. Same thing, got pregnant when first was 6 months. One good thing, the weight came off very easily with the second baby. With a toddler to chase, breast feeding, etc....
    They are 8 and 22 months now and finally play together. Now that the baby is mobile. Some days are harder than others. But my brother and I are a year and 6 days apart and we were the best of friends growing up. It's actually great. But I am not adding a third into the mix until these 2 can talk LOL

  • Crap, I didn't even answer your question. They were both born at 35 weeks. So there was no difference.

  • I went into labor with my first at 37 weeks. When she was 20 months old I had my 2nd at 39 weeks by scheduled c-section. When he was 20 months old, I had my third at 39.5 weeks by scheduled c-section. I showed no signs of labor coming any time soon.

  • my first two are 18 months apart, so not as close as yours will be. my second was 8 weeks early. that was from extreme stress though.

  • Mine were close together and I was 3 cm dilated and fully effaced for 3 weeks with #2. He was 2 weeks late. No one knows for sure.

  • My two sons were barely 17 months apart and I ended up having to be induced with both so that wasent true for me

  • I had my kids 11 months apart. the first was born 4 days before her estimated due date and the second was born 7 days before hers so it wasn't to early but the amount of time i was in labor was really short only about 3 hours
