Mum & nan went into labour early with all of their children. Will I?

I am currently 37 weeks pregnant my mum & nan went into labour early with all of there children. Is there a high chance i will.

Answer: Hi, Yes you may go into labour before your due date if there is a family history. If you have periods that are under 28 days apart you are more likely to give birth earlier than your due date. If your baby is born at 38 weeks it is still considered to be at term. Best wishes, Alex
