A 29-year-old female asked:
if i had my first son 2 days before his due date before am i likely to have this baby around the same time as well?

Maybe: Many cite the figure of 1/20 delivering on the actual due date while 8/10 do so within a week of that point.Your 2nd baby sets up his own interaction with your internal gentation clock and may or may not triggger labor the same way. His pattern may start you earlier or later.
