STM Expecting to be early

I got a call from my insurance today and she asked my DD and when I replied the 8th she was like ohh could be a Valentines Baby..... 

Horrible realization hit, I guess that could be true.... but this entire pregnancy I have been thinking early and 100% expecting her to be early.... I might have to change my expectations.....

Re: STM Expecting to be early

  • My first came at 37 weeks exactly - no induction or anything.  It's like I hit full-term and he was ready to come out.  I just assumed I would be early with the next one too.

    Around 37 weeks with #2 I started having prodromal labor and it lasted for an entire MONTH.  I didn't deliver him until I was 40w6d.  

    #3 came on her due date.

    You never know when they will come.  37 weeks was lovely, because I missed out on that last month of discomfort.  I keep hoping for another one of those pregnancies!

  • This is a major problem for me right now.  There is basically a 6 week window during which this baby could arrive, and I'm trying to arrange for people to be available should I need them to care for Jack.  I can handle not knowing how labor will go, I can handle the possibility that I will need to go to hospital during rush hour traffic, but I can not handle the uncertainty of where my toddler will be and who with.  It's driving me up a wall.

  • DS came at almost 43 weeks and was induced in the end.  I totally expect this baby to be laaaate.  I'll be thrilled if he is "on time"!

  • I am due 2/15 but my doctor won't let me go beyond my due date so there's a very real possibility that they will induce on Valentines day.

  • I've been convinced that I would go early this pregnancy. Then everyone I know who is having their 2nd right now (or just had) have stayed pregnant longer than with their first. My first was right on time and now I'm trying to convince myself that I may be in for a longer haul.

  • I just keep thinking this baby is going to be early.  DD was born at 39 weeks exactly.  After well over a month of prodromal labor. 

    The one good thing about the rules for vbacing is, that I know I won't go past 41 weeks.  So at least he can't be too late.

    That cannot be easy. I would be stressed too if I didn't know who would be with DD.


    I hope you everything works out for you! That would stress me out.

  • I had dd at 39w and some odd day. So maybe ill get lucky and won't go late. But my ILs will be watching dd for us. Which that is the most stressful part Im hardly ever away from her.

  • I had first at 40 wks 1 day, second and third both on 36 wks 5 days! I am convinced this baby is going to throw me a curve ball and come around 40!

  • I just assume I will be late- I don't even pack a bag until 39 weeks or so. I was 2 weeks late with my first, not dialated or effaced, however, very low on amniotic fluid hence the induction. With my second I was 2 days late. I am due the day after my oldest DD 's bday and do NOT want them sharing a birthday. 

    The possibility of going early never crossed my mind, but by reading everyone's above posts, I guess I should think about it!

  • This is the problem with due dates! We have expectations of when out babies "should" be born, when really it's anyone's guess. That said, I really don't want to have to wait 2 weeks past my due date either, I know everyday I would be feeling for any signs of labor and get very anxious. I also don't want to spend half of my maternity leave without a baby.

  • I have read and heard rumor that winter babies come early.  Probably an old wives' tale, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    My summer baby came early, but my two winters came later (well, one was perfectly prompt and on her due date).

  • Both my girls were born exactly one day after their due dates. I'm stressed because the boys could legitimately come anytime between now and the first of February.... My perinatologist wants to get us in for induction or CS (depending on who's head is where) by the 1st so that we don't risk complications, but statistics say we could very likely be meeting them closer to the second week of January....

  • My OB asked me at this past appointment if I had thought about delivery... not natural or epidural but when I was going to deliver! I hadn't really thought about it, I figured when my water breaks or I start to have contractions I will go to the hospital! She said that she doesn't really like to let folks go past their due date Well mine has flucuated between Feb 2nd and Feb 5th!!

    I asked her if she would let me go at least 5 days past my due date as long as LO and myself are healthy enough! If not and we induce on Feb 5th LO can be born on his dads birthday of Feb 6th (his 40th birthday) and that would be interesting since his dad bolted on us the day I told him I was expecting!!!! 

    Good luck to all as we get o' so close to our due dates!!

  • Jack was born at 38w2d, but I honestly think he was closer to 37 weeks bc I know I O'ed late.  I know exactly when I O'ed with this one, and they based my due date off of the first u/s instead of LMP, so I trust my due date more this time.  I'm mentally preparing for him to come early, and I'm mentally preparing for him to come late.  Time will tell.

  • I'm totally convinced that this baby is coming in January (I'm due 2/11). My water broke with DD at 36w 6d and she had been measuring 3 weeks ahead for a while. This baby is measuring big already, and I have GD.
  • I figured I'd go late with my first- so I was shocked when I had him at 36 weeks. I hadn't even read the last chapter of the pregnancy books about labor and delivery yet- I was so young and naive.

  • I was induced 3 days early with DS due to pre-e so he was born 2 days before his EDD. This time I have GD so with the pre-e last time and the GD this time I was just sort of assuming I would be early again. That's why her comment was so strange to me!!!! Hopefully because of the GD my OB won't let me go too far past my DD!!!!! 

    PLUS my birthday is Feb 3rd and DH and his bro share a birthday and both of their parents share a birthday so everyone in their family shares a birthday so I just thought my birthday would be perfect for her birthday too :)

    This would completely stress me out too!!!! DS was born when we lived far from family but him being the first it wasn't a big deal. I could not image the stress this is going to cause you!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!

  • DS1 was born at 41 weeks so with DS2 I was expecting to go late again but he came at 38 weeks.  This time I am expecting to go sometime inbetween.

    I'm right there with you, DC. Although for me it's depending on the time of day and not necessarily the date, so it will really be a decision that has to be made in the moment unless I end up with an unplanned but non-emergency c/s again. Plus with a preemie history and a 25% chance of getting HELLP again, I feel like the window for baby coming is about 12 weeks long starting next week. :-(
