3rd Trimester

Anyone pregnant with #4?

I am only 29 weeks but am getting very anxious about the arrival of our fourth child.  if this is your 4th, 5th, 6th, etc...did they come early, late, on-time?  I will say, my first was one day early, but my 2nd and third were both 10-12 days early.

  • My guess is that other people's experiences will have about 0 bearing on your situation.  It seems as though you've answered your own question - most likely your 4th LO will be about 2 weeks early given your history.

    So true!  I just like hearing about other people's experiences.

  • I am 36w with my 5th... With all 4 of my LO's they all were induced at 40+weeks. I'm hoping I won't have to be induced with this one.... but who knows...

     

  • Me! [raises hand]

    My first came 10 days PAST EDD. Water (finally) broke on its own. Contrax didn't start until about 4 hours later. Delivered about 12 hours from water breaking. Had an epi, which I had planned to all along, and it was heaven.

    #2 came at 37 weeks 0 days with no warning and in less than 1 hour 45 min from first contraction to birth. No time for epi. Was surprised I was able to cope just fine.

    #3 I had an elective induction - after 10 weeks of bedrest due to threatened PTL / short cervix - a couple days before my due date. It only took 4 hours from start of pitocin to birth. Opted to skip epi again and was fine. I did not find the pit contrax that much worse than the natural contrax I had with #2  - just my opinion.

    So, given my history - #4 should be arriving in anywhere from 3-7 weeks. :) my plan/goal is to have most stuff ready to go by next week (35 weeks) just in case we have another 37 weeker. Once everything is ready - I hope to rest until then. I work full-time from home so I am kid-free from 8-5 every day and I can do my work from our couch or recliner :) I am hoping to enjoy the quiet and alone time while I can...

  • This is my 4th kid but not my 4th pregnancy.
  • #1 came naturally 4 days before her due date, #2 and 3 were induced 6 days early.
    Due with #5 April 22, 2015. It's a girl!!!!! 

     Yes it was planned, yes we know what causes that, no we are not on public assistance, and yes we will be getting cable after this. ;)

  • This is my 4th, I was due on Saturday the 22nd, still waiting, all others were induced after my due date because of low amniotic fluid. Hoping I can go on my own this time.
  • Since this is my third, my question for YOU is, was your third a wild card like some say? Longer or shorter labor?

    I am 39 weeks(today) pregnant with my 4th child and so far its looking like he might either be right on time or late. Have had 2 false alarms so far with the 3rd trip to L&D being a bust because my labor stalled/stopped. Far as my other 3 pregnancies go oldest was 3 days late,2nd child was 3 weeks early and my 3rd kiddo was a week early.
