They can but doesn't mean it will. Mine were as follows

1-41 w
2-39w
3-39w 2 days
4-39w6 days
5- 40w1 day
6- 40w

So as you can see it is still varied.

Not always. I wouldn't know about my second. She was induced early due to the holiday. The others all picked their day.

Mine were 40 w exactly
About 38/39 weeks
41?
40+2
40+3
41+4
39+4
42+5

 i think that just depends on the baby.  it was the case for me but i also had other issues going on.  i was induced at 38w with my first and he was no where near coming on his own.  i went into labor on my own with number 2 and delivered at 36w5d.  i had diabetes, was dehydrated in 100+ weather, etc.  i'm currently pg with #3 and plan to be ready by 36w but hope to last until at least 37w.

Second was 40+4 (induced due to high bp)

Why would you want your baby to be four weeks early?

Quoting mom2be2013397: I'm not sure but I'm sure hoping so lol. But my 1st was 4 weeks early so hoping for the same fingers crossed.
