Question Were you early or late to go into labor with first pregnancy?

Were you early or late to go into labor with first pregnancy?

I am 33 weeks on Tuesday. My mom was four weeks early with me and I'm the oldest.

Just curious about you ladies!

Thx!

DS was born at 39+3. I never had any BH contractions that I noticed, didn't lose my mucus plug until labor and never felt any pelvic pressure (even in labor!) labor was 24 hours long from cramping to holding baby, about 8 hours of active labor. Congrats on your soon to be newbie!

First was 39+5, labour was 2.5 hours.
Second was 38+3, about 45 minutes of active labour preceded by an hour and a half or so of what I was sure was more Braxton Hicks (I had BH from about 24 weeks).

Re: Were you early or late to go into labor with first pregnancy?

My first child was a 43 weeker. I went into labor and 17 hours later had a C-section. She was in distress.

My second was born on his due date. I think I labored 12 hours with him when the OB forced a C-section.

My 3rd was a 37 weeker. I didn't go into labor with him. He was showing signs of distress at my 37 week apt. I went from the doctor's office to the hospital. His heart rate was dipping down under 100. They decided to take him rather than wait to see what happened.

Unfortunately your mother's experience doesn't necessarily affect you. My mother delivered her children anywhere from 1 1/2 weeks-6 weeks early. Her labors were between 4-8 hours. She had 7 children.
