    Default If first bub was early did you get your 2nd one early too?

    Just wondering, if you had your 1st bub early, did you have your 2nd one earlier too?

    Just asking cuz I had DS1 at 37 weeks gestation. Im at 31 weeks for this bub, have been having Braxton hicks a lot lately and wondering what the chances are of delivering early again.

    my sis is a midwife and she thought it could very well happen but then Obs said there are no real statistics to go by, unless like you had already two delivered early and then there is a higher chance for your third one to be early.

    I don't think it works out that way as a rule. Mine were 38+3, 35+5 and 42+2.
    Just pot luck I think!

    Yes.

    My first Was spontaneous delivery at 36+6. 2nd bub spontaneous at 37+3.

    My OB said there wasn't anything concrete to go by but he was expecting my second to be early as well.

    Our daughter was born at 39+3 weeks, and our son was born at 41 weeks. Both spontaneous labours.

    #1 37+1. No noticeable braxton hicks etc.

    #2 39+2. Heaps of BHs from 30w, including an hour here or there of regular ones from around 36w. I was also trying to bring on labour as it was preferable to go by 40w to VBAC with GDM.
