Moms of two and more.. labor & due date question

Did you go into labor on your due date with both children or were you off with either one? Please, give me your EDDs and your actual delivery dates, ladies!

I always hear that the first one comes late and the second comes early. However, for me the first one came 3 weeks early so I am just trying to get to a feel of a most common scenarios...

My second one is due 2 days before my original due date for the first... Hmm, i wonder...Chat Icon Chat Icon

First one - 6 weeks early (not very represntative of most moms). EDD was 10/28, actual 9/19

Second one - 1 week early. EDD 6/21, actual 6/15

There is something I learned about 2nd time moms that surprised me. I was convinced that I was going to go late with my second because Maddie never dropped toward the end. I read that second time moms carry higher & drop much later. In my case it was during delivery.

Also second time moms have more Braxton Hicks & pre-labor contractions which accounts for shorter labors. That was true in my case as well.

Lauren was due May 16th and she was born May 6th.

Both early. They almost share a b-day.

DS was a month early
DD was born a day before her due date.
Hopefully this one will will be a little early. I can't stand the thought of Going anywhere near the end again. But of course not to early!
