Just wondering how many people went early with the second one? I'm due at the end of the month and already dilated to a 3 on the 1st. I heard that having them close together there's a 40% chance that labor will begin early??? ... So READY!!!

I went in labor about 5 days early with my first and about 2 days late with my first.  I was also dilated to a 3 for a couple weeks before I had my 2nd.  Good luck!

I was a week early with my first and am currently due with my second in 2 days and she still hasn't come. I am so ready.

Yes my second was born 4 days before the due date and I was 4 days late with my first.

My first, my daughter, was 3 days late. My second, my son, was 2 weeks early.  I had lots of pre-term labor with him. If it was his choice, he would have been born at the 6 month mark of the pregnancy. It was rough.

My first was 4 days early and exactly 14 months later my second was born, 3 weeks early.

I was 6 weeks early with my second, however, my first was 4 weeks early, and the apparent cause for my pre-term delivery was an infection in the amniotic membrane.

I am right there with you on the countdown and on wanting ds to come NOW!!!! I know it's early but  I have never been known for my patience lol. My OB doesn't check if you're dilated til 38 weeks so I have no idea how long I have to wait.
