To any ladies who have had more than one child....
When you had your first child did he/she come early, on-time, or late?
This is my first baby and i'm trying to figure out if first babies have a tendency to be born late or not. I'm getting really frantic in the countdown and am dying to get an idea of whether or not my m&m is going to make his scheduled curtain call... :lol:
Tigres, elisa was born right on her due date and cameron was a week overdue you would have thought it be the other way around, anyways they almost induced me with cam cause my water broke with no contractions. Dont worry your lil m&m will come when hes ready and you never know when make sure you keep an open window two weeks before and two weeks after the due date!
My mom had six kids and only one went overdue the rest were early and two big preemies lol (mikey was 6lbs4 oz born at 32 weeks) you never know if you want him early try natural inducing stuff like sex, walking raspbery leaf tea etc
Kirzten (my first child) was born @ 30 weeks due to ruptured membrane and now I think coz of i'm a gbs carrier we just found out recently. I'm on my 35th week now and my little one's still hanging on :) doctor's are on constant monitor due to my previous pregnancy but i'm a bit confident with this pregnancy now as midwife told me another week and they're quite happy with little one's progress as he's also big lol oh and I was injected with steroids to make sure he got stronger lungs just in case he decides to show up :)
but I still think each pregnancy of each individual varies...And normally firstborn would either be 2 wks late or wks early provided that there's no complications
Okay, no real pattern or standard for it, first time or not they'll pretty much just come when they want to. That sux. I was hoping so badly that there'd be some kind of rule of thumb as to whether first babies come at a certain time. Kind of like they say first baby's labor averages 12-15 hours. It was too much to hope for. :x oh well, the poor m&m he's stuck with a miserable mommy for 10 more weeks!!
My 1st child was born 2 weeks early by a planned c-section because he was breech, on the morning of the c-section I was really uncomftable so the midwife came over to check me out, she said it was just as well the c-section was planned because she didnt think I was going to last the rest of the day! 2nd baby came to weeks early too but naturally that time!
I agree. There is no set record, all pregnanies are different, to me drs just guestimate anymore. When it is ready or the doc says it is time because he has an important golf game coming up(lol, only kidding) that is when it is time. My dr predicted my son on the exact day and my daughter was just one day off. Things will happen when it is time, just try to sleep now as much as possible because after they are born, sleep is no longer in your vocabulary.
I would if the little bugger would let me. I mean he's destined to be a kickboxer or something. I swear that little thing can kick!!! He wakes me up out of a dead sleep with the kicks he's been giving me in my ribs. I wake up all out of breath and confused and then he does it again and i'm like, that's why I woke up.
