2nd Time Around Mommies

I was just wondering (for the 2nd time 'round Mommies) how many of you went into labor early.  I will be 34 weeks tomorrow and was wondering if any of you had a normal full-term pregnancy the first go 'round and then for your second went early.  

I was only 2 days from my due date the first time and was wondering if I need to be planning on going pretty much full-term again or will I most likely go early?  I know this is silly, but for some reason I keep thinking that I'm going to go early.  My first was a girl and she was born 8 lb. 2 oz.  I'm having a boy this time and everyone that I talk to says that boys are "normally larger" than girls.  

I would appreciate any feedback at all from you guys...you're really great at helping folks out with their questions!  
Thanks!

I am wondering the same thing as you.  I was induced 1 day early with my first because I was 5 cm when I got checked and wasn't having contractions yet...  I feel like I'm going to go early also, it's just a feeling.  My Aunt went two weeks early with her second and my sister went 3 weeks early with hers.  But I've seen girls on here who were late or had to be induced with there 2nd, 3rd or 4th kids, so who knows, LOL!

I had my first 5 day before my due date, only after my OB did a membrane sweep that morning that later caused my water to break.  With my son, my water broke at 36w6d after I lost my mucus plug 2 days earlier.  I had the entire, huge bloody show with both of them.  I am now 35w3d pregnant with my 3rd, 1cm dilated adn 50% effaced and so worried I'm going to have this one even earlier than the last.

Both of my girls were born 2 days before their due dates.

34 weeks is quite early to go into labor! Hopefully baby stays and "cooks" longer, no matter how big they get.

My first came 1 day early. My 2nd came 2 weeks early and my 3rd came 2 days after my EDD according to my u/s but 5 days early according to my LMP:) With my 3rd I thought for sure I was going to go very cause I was 2 cm dialated from about 32 weeks , but nope right on time!! Every baby is diffrent and comes when they want to:)

Thanks girlies!  I'm not hoping that this baby will come right now, but hoping that I don't go "all the way" ;D  I'm stoked no matter what day he decides to come.  

I was just curious as to how many ladies out there had a "feeling" and turned out to be correct.

Thanks again!

My first was 7 days late and my second was 8 days late. I was induced with my first, but, refused induction and went into labour naturally with my second.
