  • I've got 3 girls and it wasnt true with mine My first was 2 days before my due date, my second was 2 days past my due date and my 3rd was a week early but only cause i was induced. Every woman and pregnancy is different. Good luck.

  • Everyone is going to tell you something differently. That's not true for everyone.

  • Not counting pre-term labor, which is common for me, my second was two days past his due date. I stopped taking the medication that halted contractions at 36 weeks and he still went past his due date. My third was six days early and the fourth was about ten days early.

  • Well you heard wrong.


    First babies average 41 weeks, 1 day, so a little longer... maybe that's what folks mean. ?

    And my 2nd (normal-spontaneous) came a few weeks later than my first.

  • Nope. My second was 6 days late just like my first and my third was 10 days late. Every pregnancy and every woman is different.
