Did you go into labor a little sooner each time? I'm expecting my second baby and I don't know what to expect. Thanks!

  • I have 3 kids and 4th on the way. My first 2 were late, my 1st baby was 3 days late, 2nd baby was 4 days late, 3rd baby was 1 1/2 weeks! I think it all depends on the baby! Good luck to you

  • Couple of days earlier w #2- I think it just depends on the baby:)

  • Earlier with my second but later with my third. Just depends on the pregnancy.

  • My first pregnancy i went into labor at 37 and a half weeks. My second pregnancy was 34 weeks, but that was twin so I was expected to go into labor around then, with how big I was a lot of people were suprised it wasnt earlier then that! lol

  • The first two were late the second two were early. However I did notice that when it came time to push, it was way easier and faster the 2nd and 3rd time around. The 4th was emergency c-section, but at the rate I was going with each consecutive delivery he would have fell out. LOL (My 2nd one was out in three contractions the third was out in one contraction.)
