Do you give birth earlier with each pregnancy?

I’m on my fourth pregnancy, and I’m 35 weeks; everyone keeps saying the more you have, the more of a chance to have them a bit earlier. Is that true? I’ve been a fingertip dilated since, like 28ish weeks, I think I lost part of my plug today, and I’ve been having pains I’ve never had down in my vagina. She hasn’t been as active but still active a little bit. Plus, some contractions throughout the week. Any advice? Every one of my pregnancies has been so different.


I don’t think so I’m on my 6th and am 31 week’s

Nope all mine were on my due date or late #4 was 6 days late and we induced he was 10 1/2 lbs and 23 in long

Think it’s just different with everyone and if baby is ready. Me personally yes this has been the case with each one I’ve been a week earlier than the last.

Might get easier to actually push out the more kids u have but not actually coming earlier each pregnancy

With my first I had her at 37 weeks. My second I just had this month at 32 weeks. (He’s in nicu, but doing great)

My first was 2 days early my second a wk early and my 3rd 2 wks early. But not everyone has there babies early

My first was 6 weeks early and my second was a week late.

IME no. My 5 were born at 39w6d , 37w3d, 39w3d, 39w3d, 39w5d

No I had early pregnancy’s with my first two then my last two almost on time

I had 36 week
then 32 week
then 39 plus 6 days so one day off due date
Then fourth he was 39 weeks when he came

I found they came quicker with each though

No every pregnancy is different. Dont pray for a early birth please

No. I was 39 weeks when I had my first - no intervention. And 40 with my second.

Your plug can regrow. It is normal to have more aches and pains earlier as you have more.

Nope. 37 weeks and then 39 weeks

Not in my experience. 1st was born at 41 +2, 2nd was born at 38 weeks, 3 rd was born at 41+1 and currently pregnant with #4, will be 39 weeks on Monday. I have no clue if I’ll go over due or not but I feel like I might :woman_shrugging:t3:

My first was on my due date. My second was 9 days before. My third was 6 days before(I was induced). My fourth was 7 days before (I was induced)

No idea, I just had my first at 41 weeks lol, I had to drink a loooooot of red raspberry leaf tea though, because I was showing no signs of going into labor anytime soon. I lost my mucus plug the day before I went into labor

My last 2 were born on there exact due dates and I was induced.

My first I was induced 11 days early. Second came naturally 13 days early. Third one came 10 days LATE. First two were boys, third was a girl.

No but the laboring was easier. Or maybe I was used to it by the fourth lol
