Did you go into labor and/or deliver at around the same time of day or same day of the week with each of them?

Both of my boys were born on Tuesdays in the afternoon. My first at 2:35pm and the second at 1:05pm. I went into labor with both on Sunday night (1am going into Monday morning with first when I realized my contractions weren't back spasms...had been having them for a few hours. With my 2nd, I had a very sudden bloody show at 11pm adn went in immediately because I was pre term)



So, my DH and I have been joking that I'll have her Tuesday May 1 or Tuesday May 8 in the afternoon. Our bets are on the 8th because my stitch comes out April 30 and history says I'll go into labor on Sunday and deliver on Tuesday, so there's no Sunday between the 30th and the 1st, so it must be the 8th :wink:



This is all just randomness and my late-night thoughts. A friend of mine is in labor, so it has me wondering when it will happen for us (praying she waits til 36!!! but curious as to whether she'll pop out within days of my stitch coming out or if she'll bake for a while like her biggest brother did back before I had cervical issues---the stitch can work *too* well and some women require induction after. I doubt I will since I have irritable uterus TOO, but it makes me wonder).

The only similarity was the actual gestation and the length of the labor lol.
My first was born at 39 weeks 6 days on March 24th, 2010. It was a Wednesday and at 6:16 pm. Labor was 6ish hours including pushing.



My second was born at 40 weeks on September 10th, 2011. It was a Saturday and at 4:24 am. Labor was 4.5 hours including pushing.

Seems like a lot of mamas are prone to similar times of day at least, if not similar weekdays.



I am a big believer in that our bodies had rhythms they follow. I don't think it necessarily matches up to a calendar, but since most of us live lives according to calendars (ie have a regular m-f work week, etc), that it often corresponds.



How interesting!

Thats interesting because emmalynn came on a saturday naturally 5 days early. Then annabelle was i duced so she doesnt count lol
Then eli i had him on a saturday too, just an hour from emmalynn. My midwife joked she only delvers on satrudays, otherwise i will have some other midwife and I told her if it stays the same she may actually deliver my baby. Lol. This makes me want to look on calander and pick my Estimated date.. Its just hard because the baby keeps measuring 4 days apart too. So technically they chanted my DD to the 24th instead of july 20th. But we will see. Sex put in labor last time, towards the end, im gonna be doing it all the time! Lol

My oldest was born in the evening on a Monday, my second was born in the morning on a Friday, and my third was born in the evening on a Sunday. My first and third were girls, and my second was a boy. So the girls have similar days and times, we'll see if my next son follows in his big brother's footsteps.

Mine were opposite one was born at 5:05pm and the other at 345 am but the labour n delivery were very similar, one was 8 hrs the 6 hrs, and had my bloody show at the exact same time for both at 7 15 am, weird, also one took 17 mins to push and the other 19 mins. I wonder how this one will be, also they were both born b4 40 weeks.

My oldest was born on a Monday ( 7:30 am). My second and third were both born on a Sunday ( though my second was barely a Sunday baby born at 12:15 am) I'm thinking weekend but who knows. My oldest was two weeks late before I went into labor ap, my second was 10 days late and my third was 36 weeks 4 days but came at 36 weeks 5 days. I pretty much have a six week window of time I could possibly deliver we will see.
