im expecting my 3rd child in 2 weeks time 18th march and my first 2 children were late, my first daughter was 7 days over and my second daughter was induced after 10 days. does that mean this baby will come late? anyone know if theres a pattern or if its just random bad luck lol

Ive had three boys and all of which were late so im expecting my fourth to be late too!

My first was 9 days late, my second was 3 days late and i had to be induced with my third at 14 days late!!

My mum had three, i was 2 days early my sister was 10 days late and my other sister was bron on her due date, i really do think its just random!!

But good luck anyway, hope he/she isnt too late if at all :D x

Hi moms, i am expecting my 2nd little boy on March 12th, 2012 my first son was born on his due date, but affortunely i had complications during the birth i went to the doctors on Jan 15th,2009 thursday got amitted to the hospital because me and my sons oxygen was way low and i was constantly monitored and the baby we were doing okay after we got the oxygen undercontroled and was in labor for 52 hours of labor and the baby ended up of course still not coming out, i was induced that friday and then again that saturday Jan 17th when my son was suppose to be born and the baby ended up going to the bathroom inside me, (merconium) im not even sure if thats how you spell it and then finally about 1:25am the hospital, doctors delivered my son nathaniel and he ended up in the nic-u and wasnt eating enough and also on top of that had jundice. anyways now he is a healthy 2 year and 10 months and 4 days almost 3 years old January 17th.

So for this 2nd baby boy i have to have another c-section so they might deliver me on time or early we will see, every pregnancy is so different.

My daughter was 3 weeks early but had started trying to come at 7 weeks early. Obst said this one will also most likely be early - but obviously they can't say for certain. By this rationale I would think this one might come late for you too.

Crazy isn't the word!! I was the size of a house and he was eventually born weighing 10lb 6oz!!! The birth was also traumatic, he had shoulder dystocia (where they get stuck in the birth canal) purely because of his size and he came out not breathing, had to be resuscitated etc etc.
I am currently pregnant with my fourth and had an appointment at the hospital to discuss a few issues and this time round i will be getting an extra scan a few weeks before my due date, and possibly a c section if he/she is too large!!
I think they have different time lines etc in different country's!!
Good luck x

I was thinking the same thing. My son was 7 days late and I was wondering if this one will be late too. But, i have never heard of a dr letting you go past 7 days late. That is crazy that you can carry your baby 2wks late....

They say usually yes....
BUT my first was early, second on his due date and third was late!
Every baby is different ;-)
