I have a question.

You could be just fine. Every baby has his/her own time table. My cousin just had her second at almost 42 weeks after her first came at 37. Both were spontaneous labors. You never know until you know. You know? :)

I didn't. None of mine seem to want to come early. With my first I delivered at 41 weeks. With my second, I was induced at 39 weeks because of previously unknown clotting issues, so dd 2 was not going to arrive any earlier I don't think. I don't expect this one to come before my induction either. Although I hope she does!

went into labor with my 16 yr old at exactly 38 wks...both others were induced at 39 weeks.

There is hope.

I'm in a similar boat as you... My DH just started a new job this week working in Philly.

I'm a first timer but one of my coworkers decided to tell me a story about her three. The first was 38 weeks, the second at 37 weeks, and the third at 41 weeks. So, I guess it can happen. I hope for you it does. I'm actually hoping for this LO to come one time too. Family history of early babies (three generations of all babies two weeks early and one, me, at 6 weeks early). But I'll be 37 weeks on the last day of school.
Stay cooking little beans! Your mamas need the extra time and their dhs.

I don't know, but I sincerely hope that third babies can come later. I was induced at 38 weeks with my first, went into labor spontaneously at 37 weeks with my second, and am currently 34 1/2 weeks with baby # 3. Everyone keeps saying that I don't look like I'll make it to my June 5th due date, and I'm a nervous wreck! I definitely don't want her to come before 37 weeks, and I'd love to be able to finish the school year, which will end May 16th. Hopefully these June babies will stay put for a little while!
