This is my 3rd pregnancy, I'm 35 weeks along and so ready to be done. Don't get me wrong I want baby to cook til he's ready but I'm over all these pregnancy stuff lol. My first child, my daughter, was a week overdue and my second which is my son was 11 days early. I'm just wondering from those that had multipul pregnancies if you had yours earlier or later than your due date. I've heard that the more you have they come earlier than the due date. Its rang true for myself so far and I'm hopin this time it will to, even if its only a week early. My first 2 kids are 22 months apart and this one will only be 14 months apart from my second child.

35 weeks is still way to early. Wait a couple more weeks.

Going early is not true, for me at least. I was 2 weeks overdue and induced with my first, 2 weeks overdue with my second I went into labor the day I was going to be induced, 4 days over due and induced again with my 3rd. I don't think I will EVER be early even if I have 100 kids.

I know how you feel. My first 2 were 31 months apart and these two will be almost 12 months apart. I've been ready for weeks and I'm only 34 weeks. As for going earlier with subsequent children, idk. I was induced with the last one and am hoping to schedule my induction with this one the 27th. And BG members can crucify me for the next statement but, I hope my dr will schedule it as early as safely possible bc my youngest will be 1 march 30th and I'm due again the 24th. Any extra time between birthdays would be AMAZING lol.

My first I was induced 2 days after my due date. My second I was 1 day overdue when I went into labor. I'm hoping with this one I'll go a little early, but I definitely won't count on it obviously lol!

Yes I'm definatly not looking to go into labor just yet because we are currently in the process of moving apartment and have to be done by febuary 28th and my daughters 3rd birthday is March second so I'm just hopin ill go like a week before my due date. I just wanted to see if there was any truth to the myth and from the looks of it it all depends on the person and the pregnancy. Still keeping my fingers crossed for a little early though cause I would hate to be induced again lol. Thank you everyone for your input :)

I'm ready for time to speed up a little lol
DD was born on her EDD naturally, so I have no idea what to expect this time.
For the women I know IRL if they had one baby early, they had the next early too. But not necessarily earlier than the first baby and even earlier than the second, and so on, just early.
